He had also served on the Farwell School Board. David enjoyed vegetable and flower gardening, playing cards, going fishing in his younger years, picnics and spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved the Mollie B.

He is survived by his wife, Dorothy Bogus of Farwell; children and spouses, Linda and Rodney Wells of Elba, Bob Bogus of Dannebrog, James and Linda Bogus of St. Paul, Carolyn and Doug Kuta of St. Libory, Deborah and Marvin Ziola of Phillips, Ronald and Stephanie Bogus of Elm Creek; Theresa and Tod Brandt of Grand Island and Kathleen and Matt Stoltenberg of Kearney; 14 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; sister, Elaine Panowicz of Grand Island; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Arnold and Pat Bogus of St. Paul and Daryl and Joy Bogus of Costa Rica; brothers-in-law, Gerald Jindra of Central City and Joseph Jindra of Tacoma, WA.
