    Dave, thanks for long service mate.

    If you get to read this, consider. When you get to "near death" there are many medical types that pride themselves on "saving" people that were otherwise dead. What they mean is re-animating these dead people.

    I died 27th November 2008, (heart stopped - blood clot). I was revived, and now "live" with the problems of having been dead for 46 minutes. Now, more then a year forward, I can write messages like this, but am currently on a "work trial" were they are trying to get me back to work and pay taxes, rather then costing them - I can't do it, Brain loses Oxygen supply you see. Bog simple stuff I am having huge problems with. Life is intolerable, yet the medical types keep saying how well all is. I hate my life now, and would end it myself if I knew how, without risking anyone else.

    You won't know who I am because of the strange login, if I used my real one, it would open a whole string of things I can't deal with anymore. It has taken me a couple of days to pluck up the guts to write this.

    You did well mate.

    Melanoma Dave
    On the bright side, that's a pretty awesome nickname.
    It could also be a cool cartoon character; or even a band
    name. The possibilities are endless.

    Get well soon.

    Vaya con dios Dave.

    I had a melanoma removed from my face (3rd one I have had removed, second time on my face) last year but luckily caught it in time, so only 3% chance this one has already killed me. I am running out of scar free face so hope it is the last.

    Thank you for your friendship and mentoring. I will see you, in another life. Just mention that you do not care much about liberals view, so I can recognize you.

    I am sorry of your passing.

    Sinkula: Obituary
    Dave Sinkula, 40, Coon Rapids, MN, died on April 14th, 2010 after a long battle with melanoma. Services will be held at 10:00 a.m. at Eastgate Funeral Service Chapel, 2302 E Divide Ave, Bismarck, ND, with Rev. Paul Becker officiating. Burial will be held in Fairview Cemetery, 2929 E Century Ave, Bismarck, ND.

    Visitation will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. at Eastgate Funeral Service, Bismarck.

    Dave was born on March 8, 1970, in Bismarck, ND, to Donald and Lillian Sinkula. He lived in Bismarck, in the same house with his parents and his sister Karen, for 18 years. After graduating from Century High, he attended the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND, from 1988 – 1992, pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering. While at UND, Dave began his first of seven co-op work assignments with 3M Co., mostly in the St. Paul, MN area. In the fall of 1992 Dave transferred to North Dakota State University in Fargo, ND. He completed his Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering in December of 1994.

    Following graduation, Dave went to work at Phoenix International Corp. in Fargo. Feeling an urge to leave the Red River Valley and start fresh, Dave left in August 1995, headed for the Twin Cities. He decided to meander a bit before arriving at his destination, passing through Austin, TX and Colorado Springs, CO to visit friends in a roundabout vacation before settling into job hunting full time.

    It took until December of 1995 for Dave to find a job as an embedded software engineer for Interactive Technologies, Inc. in North Saint Paul, MN. He really enjoyed working at ITI with a wonderful group of people to both work and play with.

    In the boom times that were the late 1990’s, Dave left ITI and began working at J. Gordon Electronic Design, Inc., Fridley, MN in 1998. Like ITI, Dave loved being with JGED both for the work and the people he worked with.

    Boom gave way to bust, Dave was laid off; he later found a job with Ecowater Systems in Woodbury, MN.

    Dave met Angie Olson at a friend’s wedding in 1997. The two have lived in their current residence in Coon Rapids since 1999. After a long period of getting to know one another and Angie’s daughter Brooke Jundt, the two were married on July 12, 2003 at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Bismarck. Their marriage was blessed with a daughter, Heather Maggie Maye Sinkula, born on June 6, 2004.

    Dave loved to laugh and was most fond of being a dad. Dave enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, and loved to work in his garden. Most can agree that he spent quite a bit of time on his computer – often spent working with pictures and video, and later blogging and micro-blogging.

    He is survived by his mother Lil; his sister Karen and nephews Michael and James Truong (Seattle, WA); his wife, Angie; his daughter, Heather; and step-daughter Brooke. He was preceded in death by his father, Donald (October 11, 2009).
    May you rest in peace, now and forever.

    Rest in peace, you were too young but you lead the best life you could with the time you were given.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.
