David Lee Widmer, Age 67 of Argyle lost his long courageous battle with cancer on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at his home with his loved ones by his side.
David was born on September 15, 1949 in Monroe to wonderful parents, Arthur and Norene (Beach) Widmer. He graduated from Argyle High School in 1967. He served in the United States Army from 1971 until he was honorably discharged to care for the family farm in 1972. He married Cheryl Tyler on November 11, 1972 and the couple farmed until 1976. David then worked for Advance Transformer(four years), Iroquois Foundry (four years), and retired as a truck driver and diesel mechanic in 2012.
