Philip David Feldschau

August 31, 1958 - May 17, 2021

David Feldschau, Sr., 62, of Nederland, passed away Monday, May 17, 2021. He was born August 31, 1958, in Port Arthur, to the late “Bill” Feldschau, Sr. and Gloria “Flip” Feldschau.

David was a lifelong Nederland resident and co-owner and mechanic at Bill’s Garage, Port Neches. He was a great friend to many and never met a stranger. He loved to see people having a good time, thought any excuse was a good excuse for a backyard party or get-together with family and friends, and was always the last to leave a party.

David loved music, especially his favorite, Willie Nelson; 57 Chevys; the color orange; and hot dogs. He loved hunting, was an avid bowler, and was a collector of many things. Some of his greatest joy was found spending time with his grandkids and watching them play sports.

David was a most beloved, one-of-a-kind husband; father; grandfather; son; brother; uncle; friend; and mechanic. He was known for his kindness; patience; wittiness; selflessness; and his willingness to lend a hand to anyone in need.

Those left to cherish David’s memory include his wife of forty-one years, Kathleen Feldschau, of Nederland; son, David Feldschau, Jr. and wife, Vanessa, of Pearland; daughter, Stacey Watson and husband, Jeremy, of Nederland; six beautiful grandchildren, Hanna and Landon Feldschau and Owen, Marie, Davis, and Jay Watson; mother, Gloria Feldschau, of Nederland; sister, Della Balsano and husband, David; brother, Ricky Feldschau, Sr. and wife, Kathleen; and many friends and extended family members.

David was preceded in death by his father, Bill Feldschau, Sr. and his brother, Bill Feldschau, Jr.

Uncle Dave, My heart is broken, my Pops has lost his best friend of 40+ years. There is countless memories flooding my mind. Parties, Deer hunting, Willie Nelson's songs, you and Dad working countless hours after yalls regular day jobs in Dad's garage to make it possible for us to have everything possible. Days when mom cooked hot dogs and you would have to call Aunt Kathleen and let her know you were going to be a little longer because you had to stay over and have your favorite meal. Llano trips and deer camps will never be the same, but we will make sure to still include you. I will miss the 7mm you always let me use and I will cherish the time with that rifle for all of my days. I thank God for you being in my families life and for the brotherhood you had with my pops. I will leave you with one last Later la la later later la la later dawg and one last of you and pops handshake that I was always proud to be a part of. Much love Dawg. -Trey T.
