David "Dave" Husbyn, 73, of Zumbrota, MN, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, at the Zumbrota Care Center after a sudden decline in his health.

On March 13, 1969, Dave was involved in a car accident that changed his life forever. He sustained injuries resulting in paralysis of his legs. He spent six months in St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester. He was able to come home for weekends prior to his final dismissal. His first weekend home was for his high school graduation where he received his diploma via his wheelchair. He spent several months after graduation learning new skills. He began employment at IBM in 1970. He worked there until retiring in 2000. He continued to work for several years at Celestica in Rochester, MN.

Dave enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He enjoyed fishing in Ashby, MN. He shot pool for many years in the Zumbrota, Goodhue and Bellechester area.
