David Eugene Brogla was born Nov. 10, 1960, in Iowa City, the son of Donald R. and Margaret L. (Yoder) Brogla. David attended Coralville Central until entering Regina in the seventh grade where he graduated from high school in 1979, having been a National Honor Society recipient. He then went on to the University of Iowa receiving his degree in business. His working career began with General Mills, then began a long career with Oral B and later Proctor & Gamble, all in Iowa City. Health reasons forced him to retire much earlier than he would have ever wanted to.
His mother said it best, David has liked anything with a ball since he was a child. Growing up in Coralville he was always in baseball's little league, babe ruth and at Regina on both the baseball and football teams. He enjoyed playing golf, softball, anything Hawkeyes, the Chicago Cubs and the Cedar Rapids Kernels. And most memorable for him and his family were their trips to Hawaii, many cherished memories created.
His family includes his mother, Margaret Brogla; brother and his wife, Michael and Susan Brogla; two nieces, Lindsay Brogla (Rameo Riojas) and Courtney Brogla; one nephew, Tyler Brogla; one uncle, Paul Brogla and a number of cousins.
David's family would like to extend their most sincere thanks for the compassionate and professional care everyone one from Legacy and all his doctors and medical support team have provided David during the past years. We are eternally grateful!
