David was born on Oct. 3, 1968, at Yankton, South Dakota, the son of Marvin H. and Patricia A. (Perk) Kuchta. Dave and his family lived in various communities in Nebraska as he was growing up. In 1982, they moved to Ashton, where he attended Loup City Public School and graduated from Loup City High School in 1988. He married Jodine L. Nielsen on Oct. 21, 2000, at Palmer.

Over the years he worked at Delicious Foods, Sam’s Club, Monfort’s, Coca-Cola, Terminix and was currently working at Stetson Building Supply in Grand Island. Dave enjoyed spending time at the river with his dogs, kayaking and line dancing. He loved to joke and tease with people and cooking. His family all loved his macaroni salad and jambalaya. He is survived by his children and spouses, Kyle and Shayla Nielsen of St. Paul, Katelin and Mike Coghlan of St. Paul, Ryan Jurgensen and Sarah Gumb of Ravenna and Coy Kuchta of St. Paul; three grandchildren, Kailey Coghlan, Hayden Coghlan and Aubrie Nielsen; his parents, Marvin and Patricia Kuchta of St. Paul; siblings and spouses, Curtis and Maggie Kuchta of St. Paul, Donald and Jane Kuchta of Lincoln, Cindy and Scott Uhing of Lincoln and Robert and Melinda Kuchta of Grand Island; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.

David was on the sports videographery team at Loup City H.S. and I remember working with him and sharing jokes. David was always on time and did an excellent job and never complained about the weather conditions or bus rides to the games. Linda and I offer our condolences to David and his family.

Dave worked for me in the past. When he left we lost a great person, employee and friend. I kept in contact with Dave over the years and would talk via text at times. RIP Dave. What a great guy and friend. He will be missed. See you another day friend!

Dave and I worked together at Sam's Club. I always enjoyed Dave's humor. He was so friendly and even after he left Sam's, he would come in to visit. I will always remember Dave as a kind and loving man. Rest in Peace Dave! Elaine Powell
