Obituary of David William Bjoralt
David William Bjoralt, 76, passed Wednesday, August 17, 2022, in Corydon, Indiana. He was born March 2, 1946, to Harley and Genevieve Bjoralt in Greeley, CO. Dave grew up in Greeley and graduated from Greeley High School in 1964. A few years later, on August 3, 1969, Dave married the love of his life Charlotte Bernhardt in Greeley.
Dave was a hardworking man. He started his sales career selling cars at Davidson Chevrolet in Loveland, CO in the 1970’s. He started his own furniture store in the early 80’s with a “hoe and a rake, and a few left-over wedding gifts” he would always say. He owned and operated Dave’s Bargain Mart, Dave’s Furniture Mart, and Oak Specialists. Dave retired from furniture sales in 2012, with Mattress King in Greeley. Dave and Charlotte then moved to Southern Indiana in 2013 to be near their daughter and her family.
In his younger years, Dave enjoyed drag racing. In his free time, he liked to go camping, hunting and really loved his time at the family cabin in Masonville, CO. In retirement Dave enjoyed many woodworking projects.
Dave is survived by his loving wife Charlotte, his daughter Shelley Tuxworth (Frank), and two grandchildren; Taylor Tuxworth of Tampa, FL, and Tux Tuxworth of Madison, WI.
In 2011, Dave and Charlotte lost their son, Sean Bjoralt, to cancer at the young age of 33. Dave was also preceded in death by his parents Harley and Genevieve Bjoralt.
