David Egger was born on May 24, 1952 at Columbus, Nebraska to Walter and Lorraine (Ewert) Egger. He attended local schools, graduating from Columbus Scotus High School in 1970. In his younger days, he was very involved in farming in the Platte County area. He moved to Butler County in 1981, where he worked at both Timpte and Henningson Foods a few years. He then started his own construction/carpentry company, EZ Construction. He later went to work as a facility maintenance engineer at the Family Resource Center, where he remained for over 15 years. He also was a bus driver and maintenance worker for East Butler Schools for several years and later drove a bus for Aquinas High School. He was currenting driving a bus for David City Public Schools until his death.

He loved music and self-taught himself to play the piano, organ and accordion and eventually formed his own Country/Rock band in 1980 called Carolina. He later formed a new band, High Caliber, in 1990. After he semi-retired, Dave continued to fill in when needed. He played in various bands for over two decades. His bands played all over the Midwest and were a big part of his life.

Dave was a #1 grandpa and loved spending time with family. He enjoyed his casino trips, especially playing his Triple 777 machines. Sevens were his favorite number, so much, that he married Sue Schwartz on 7-7-07 in Las Vegas.
