MADISON/STOUGHTON -David Alden Sperstad passed away at his home on Monday, May 1, 2017, as a result of cardiac arrest.

He was born on June 9, 1955, in Manchester, N.H., the son of Sidney and Elizabeth “Betty” (Phelan) Sperstad.

David graduated from Stoughton High School. He worked as a waiter at his parent’s restaurant, Sperstad’s in high school and later at the Greenhouse in the Concourse Hotel, where he enjoyed his work and made many lifelong friends. David spent his last years enjoying his work at Der Rathskeller in the UW Memorial Union.
