David



Hi, my name is David Neises. I’ve lived here all my life. Family is a big thing with us. We have a lot of family and extended family here and it’s important to us to be close to family. I started out working at a gas station. I moved on from there to A.Y. McDonald Manufacturing as a toolmaking apprentice. Then I worked at John Deere in the experimental department and worked my way into the tool room. I worked at John Deere for 30 years before retiring. Besides working at John Deere I also ran the farm here. Now we play with our hobbies and cars and are really enjoying ourselves.

I enjoy mechanical things, cars and things like that. I’m always interested in helping someone out with a project. Family is the most important thing in my life.
