David Michael Malvin was born July 7, 1963, in Willmar, Minnesota. He graduated from Atwater High School in 1981. On October 26, 1985 David married Linda Fredrick in Spicer and they had son Michael and two daughters Christine and Courtney. David resided on the family farm in Atwater, Minnesota where he gained strong ties to the Lord. The farm was where he would shine light on the gospel of Jesus Christ. His message was constant. Jesus Christ died to save us from our sins and we need him as our Lord and Savior. He loved the farming life. Daily chores and tending to livestock filled most of his days on the farm. Spring planting and Fall harvest he could be found working the land in a John Deere tractor. He was a Ford guy and in particular, a red F-150 guy. He took pride in his pickups and shining them up for his drives. When he wasn’t at the farm you could catch him cruising the country side to some of his favorite spots enjoying God’s beauty. His grass was always cut and he enjoyed taking the time to do so. Lawnmower and tractor rides with his Grandchildren were sure to take place when they came out to visit. The smell of fresh cut alfalfa on a warm summer breeze was one of his favorites. It was hard to find a place with more beautiful flowers than the family farm. He liked to show them off on walks around the property. It’s a place where the air smelled fresher, the food tasted better, and the message was clearer. Those memories and his message will last a lifetime for generations to come.


He is survived by son Michael (Ashley) Malvin of Willmar, daughter’s Christine Malvin; Courtney (Damian) Zaeska of Atwater. Also surviving by siblings, Cindy (Timothy) Larcom of St. Cloud, Sharon (Frank) Brandt of Sartell, Bonnie (Lee) Harrier of Willmar, Carolyn (Peter) Klinghagen of Grove City and Darin (Kari) Malvin of Atwater; grandchildren, Laila, Camden, & Porter Zaeska, nieces and nephews, besides other relatives and friends.


David was preceded in death by his parents; Michael Clark Malvin in 1995; Mary Jean Malvin in 2016.
