May 29, 1963 ~ February 22, 2021

Born in: Stevens Point, WI
Resided in: Roswell, GA

David Karl Muetterties, 57, passed away on Monday, February 22, 2021, after a year-long battle with cancer.

Dave was born on May 29th, 1963, in Stevens Point, Wisconsin but grew up in the close-knit community of Mountain Lakes, New Jersey. He attended Mountain Lakes High School and will always be a Laker. He then went on to attend Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marine Biology.

After college, Dave moved to Atlanta, GA and worked in sales for a medical equipment company. It was here that he made lifelong friends and eventually started his family.

Dave is survived by his wife, Vicky Balsam Muetterties and his daughters, Ella and Jenna. He was preceded in death by his father (John Muetterties) and mother (Mary Ann Muetterties) and survived by his seven siblings, Andy (Marsha) Muetterties of Parker, CO, Robert (Robyn) Muetterties of Boxford, MA, Hank (Lisa) Muetterties of Eagle, ID, Will (Amy) Muetterties of Lexington, KY, Jane (Martin) Cronk of Boonton, NJ, Joe (Kristin) Muetterties of Centennial, CO, Anne (Bill) Hunter of York, PA; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Dave, known by many as Mutty or Cheese, had a perpetual smile on his face and a servant’s heart. He was a master craftsman and a jack-of-all-trades. A dedicated father, he never missed a performance, game, or a chance to be with his girls. Dave was content with life and valued the simple things: good music, hot coffee, and the outdoors. He made an impression on so many and will live on in our hearts forever.

A Celebration of Life will be held to honor Dave at North Point Community Church on Thursday, March 25th at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to North Point Community Church’s Be Rich fund (https://pushpay.com/g/northpoint?src=hpp) or the Wounded Warriors Project (https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org) in his memory.

    Dave “Never ever complained”

    Dave and I got hired at the same time in 1988 at Carex. We both trained in Newark, New Jersey.

    After our training I jumped in Dave’s company Astro van and drove to Tacoa Georgia to pickup my company Astro. We did not know each other well but I was very comfortable the whole way down and had great conversation about our early lives in the very short period of being 26 years old. Me,as a very anxious person, Dave was definitely an awakening for me to realize that worry, negative thoughts etc is is not healthy or proper for your own well-being. Dave is a very positive calming person with a common sense attitude toward life. He had that gift that many of us would cherish.

    Super nice person and great soul.
    God Bless. We need more people in this world like Dave.

    Light note.

    Dave was one of the few or “only”reasonable mature 26 year olds of the original and future carex crew. He brought calm and reason to the crazy, hard working and productive sales team that surrounded him. Probably saved some careers.

  10. Janet Osen says:

    A beautiful tribute for a wonderful man. You had a gem. And he left a beautiful legacy in his two precious daughters.

  11. Charlene Koth says:

    Vicky, so sorry to hear about your loss of Dave. I have read what others have written about him and he was a person like wished I had known. May you be comforted by God during this sad time. Our prayers and sympathy to you and your family.

  12. John Grissom says:

    Vicki, Ella and Jenna

    So sorry to hear about Dave. Praying for strength and comfort for you guys!

  13. Janice and Bob says:

    Vic, Ella, and Jenna,
    Who knew that all those years ago when you moved next door to us we not only got new neighbors but neighbors who became family to us.
    Dave was one of the finest men I have ever met- his ready smile, calmness, humor and genuine love and concern for all of you. His care and love of Grandma Dorothy was endearing as was her love of him.
    Our hearts hurt for all of you. My prayer is that Our Lord will wrap all of you in His loving arms and give you strength and comfort.

  14. The Jenson Family says:

    Vicky, Ella, and Jenna –
    We are sending our love, hugs, and prayers to you all. Hoping that somehow you find peace reading these incredible tributes to Dave and how he impacted so many during his time here on this Earth. I find it interesting to see posts from others I know who I had no idea knew Dave. He was always a positive light and clearly made an impact on all those around him. We first met Dave back in the Shallowford Falls ES days when we were trying to launch a foundation and generate funds through pancake breakfasts and auctions. He was the first to sign up to help with the setup and the last to leave the event to help tear down – always with a smile on his face and a patient, calming demeanor. We feel blessed to have known him. We will continue to pray that you all find comfort and peace.
    Amy, Mark, Arden, Grant & Lindsay

  17. Shaun Gatipon says:

    Vicky, Ella and Jenna,
    I’ll say it again, mere words cannot express the sadness for your loss and the hope for some joy knowing that he is no longer in pain. Our world is a lesser place without his kind soul in it. Take everything he has taught you in his life and use it to enrich your own life, I sure have.
    Kind regards and love,

    I met Dave through the Parking Team at North Point church. It was an honor to interact with someone who really was the “Rock” of our team. He was always steady through everything we did even while overcoming various physical challenges that could arise.

    Dave was a positive model of how to do things “the right way” as a leader and follower of Christ. That type of person, who Dave was, is what we all should aspire for leaving a positive mark on the world. He covered location R3 and looked after anything else that needed attention, frequently staying late after for cone pick up duty. Dave would always be involved in the additional service work that our group would do together and his presence would naturally help in bringing other folks out to join in. I am glad to call Dave a friend of mine and will always value those good times serving together with him.
