David Maltby Obituary

     On December 17, 2023, David McCollum Maltby, age 87 of Sister Bay, entered into the nearer presence of his Lord and savior, Jesus Christ.

     David was born in West St. Paul, MN, on October 11, 1936, to the late Harold and Marie (McCollum) Maltby. He graduated from South St. Paul High School in 1955. David drove a city bus in the Twin Cities for 10 years. During this time, he met his future wife, Shirley. David was united in marriage to Shirley Sunstrom at Central Baptist Church in St. Paul, MN, on April 13, 1963. The marriage was blessed with two children, Kim and Mike.

     In 1968, the family moved to Door County, WI. David began working at Erickson Electric and eventually he and Shirley started Action Electric with partners Glen and Pat Fagerstrom and David and Lois Seaquist. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, restoring John Deere tractors, building the business of Action Electric, and continuing to help his son with repairs well into his retirement. He was relied on by many to fix whatever needed fixing and was always willing to help. David was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Sister Bay.

     He leaves behind to cherish his memory his daughter, Kim (Mike) Picha; his son, Mike (Britt) Maltby; his grandchildren, David and Emma Picha, Max, Eliza and Marshall Maltby; his brother, Willis Maltby; and the Sunstrom family. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, and many friends.

     He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Shirley; his parents; his brother, Jack; and his sister, Laura May. 

     The Maltby family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Scandia Village in Sister Bay for his exceptional care.
