Mr. David Emil Aimone, 75, of Gile, Wis., passed away Friday, August 14, 2020. He was born January 11, 1945 in Ironwood, Mich., son of the late Peter and Helmi (Koivisto) Aimone. David was a lifelong resident of the area and a graduate of Hurley High School. He proudly served in the United States Army and was a Veteran of the Korean Conflict. David was a Fire Chief and was known as the Mayor of Gile. He was a member of the American Legion, the VFW, and the Salem Lutheran Church. David served on military funerals as a chaplain, and after his retirement he made sure the Gile and Montreal were kept clean and on holidays the flags were out.

He is survived by one brother, Peter (Louise) Aimone; three sisters, Mary Lou Bishop, Joanne (Jim) Murfey and Debra (Tom) Bruggner; and by best friends, Mark and Max Samardich.

In addition to his parents, David was preceded in death by two nephews, Brian Erspamer and Tim Bishop; one niece, Lori Cross; and by two brothers-in-law, Tom Bowman and Darryl Bishop.

Military graveside services will be held at a later date.

"Hey Goosting! Hey Goost!" Dave would call out to me at our HHS Class of 1963 reunions.
Affable, quirky and at times teasing - Dave's big personality always stood out.
He embodied the greatness of our generation.

David E Aimone was a good friend and will be sorely missed. From and early age he demonstrated his commitment to hard work and dedication to the task at hand. As the Mayor of Gile, he devoted his life to making sure the community was a better place for all to enjoy. Our country needs more like David with the dedicated loyalty to the betterment of society and the quality of life. Rest in peace my friend. Izzy Miller

David was a friend of the entire Sullivan family often stopping by in the morning to visit my brother Michael as he waited for the high line bus. And also keeping an eye on ma and Michael as the rest of the family was still in Milwaukee for that we will ever be grateful. Rest in peace my friend.Sully

I am so sorry to hear of David’s passing. Even though I never saw David much after I left the area, when we did see each other, it was as if though no time had passed since our prior encounter. I remember when he returned from Korea, he brought home a jacket with an embroidered dragon on the back, that jacket was for me. This memory has brought tears to my eyes. May St. Peter and your parents greet you at the Golden Gate and welcome you with open arms. You are home. Joel Aimone
