David Aaron Trigg was born to Ray and Jean (Sandberg) Trigg at Hen­dricks Community Hospi­tal on Sept. 14, 1978. He was raised on the family farm in rural Verdi, and he was the Verdi Centennial Baby. David was baptized and confirmed at the Meth­odist church in Verdi and attended school in Lake Benton. Prior to his gradu­ation from Lake Benton High School in 1997, David purchased his first farm. After graduating he began working at J.C. Ramsdell’s Enviro Liners, then began his career at 3M Corpora­tion in Brookings, South Dakota. During that time he bought the family farm in Verdi Township. He also purchased a lake home on Lake Benton, where he enjoyed spending many weekends.
On Monday, Jan. 14, David passed away unex­pectedly at his farm at the age of 40 years and four months.
David had a passion for cars. He enjoyed attending farm auctions and spend­ing time in his garden. He had a soft spot for animals; his dog and cat were espe­cially important to him. David’s laid-back person­ality and his almost con­stant smile will surely be missed by many.
He will be remembered by his mother, Jean Trigg of Lake Benton; siblings, Annette Frappier (David Johnson) of Ward, South Dakota, and Allen (Tami) Trigg, Sharlyn (Mike) Tie­deman, and Daryl (Tracy) Trigg, all of Lake Benton; and many nieces and neph­ews. David was preceded in death by his father, Ray Trigg.
