David Brian Wise, 66, of Oswego, Il, passed away on Thursday January 14th, 2021 after a short battle with melanoma of the liver.

David was born on February 24th, 1954 to Lucien (David) & Joanne Wise in Waco, Texas. After graduating from Oswego High School in 1972, he went on to study business at Illinois State University.

After graduation, he had a successful career in sales for many many years and after retirement enjoyed being a property manager in Naperville, Illinois. In 1987, he met Gail Cannata and they were married from 1988-2007.

He was unendingly proud of daughter Erica Wise, son Adam Wise & daughter in law, Lisa Wise. David was a hands-on father, coaching many years of athletics and never missed a game if he could help it. His children meant more to him than anything else in the world, something he often mentioned. Those who knew him best knew he was most proud of being Grandpa Dave to Theodore, Bradley & Harper Wise.

David was predeceased by his parents Lucien (David) Wise, Joanne (Leuttich) Wise and his brother Steven Wise. He is survived by his loving brothers Jeffrey (Leigh Ann) Wise, Douglas (Kristina) Wise, nephew Eric (Heather) Wise and his beloved partner of the last 10 years Kim Honcik.
David was also passionate about his Harley and spent as much time as possible with the wind in his hair.

The family has decided to hold a celebration of life at a later date when all of the people who knew and loved David can gather.
