David Thomas Kalis was born on January 30, 1937 on his family’s farm near Walters, the son of Albert and Alvina (Herman) Kalis. He attended country school and graduated from high school in Kiester. As a senior in high school he took over the operation of the family farm. On August 24, 1957 David was united in marriage to Patricia Woitas at St. Theodore’s Catholic Church. He was  a member of St. Casimir’s Church in Wells and later became a member of St. Theodore’s. David was a member of the Foster Township Board for 32 years. He enjoyed spending his time working on the farm, especially with his livestock. He followed the stock market daily and wisely chose stocks and successfully bought and sold futures. David will be remembered as a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. Blessed be his memory.
Survivors include his wife Pat of Albert Lea, his children Brian (Kimberly) Kalis of Alden, Joni (Bill Cornish) Kalis of Lincoln City, OR, and Susan Kalis of Blue Earth; grandchildren Andrew (Erica) Kalis, Matthew (Melissa) Kalis, Sarah Kalis, Nicole Lium, and Derek Lium; several great-grandchildren; sisters Margaret Ward of Mapleton, Bernice Monson of Alden, Lorraine (Don) Schroeder of Mishawaka, IN, and Pat (Tom) Arett of Chesterfield, MO; brothers Albert (Sharon) Kalis of Montgomery, MN, and Mike (Georgia) Kalis of Albert Lea; and many nieces and nephews.
