David A. Alfredson

David A. Alfredson or “Duck” retired as a detective after 30 years on the Rockford Police Dept. He served 12 years with the Winnebago Co. Sheriff’s Dept. as a Field Monitor and as Court House Security. David was a member of PBPA and served many years as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Rockford Municipal Employees Credit Union. He was also involved in many church activities over the years.


David loved the outdoors. He enjoyed the time spent on the water fishing and loved to go camping. For many years Dave enjoyed the many varieties of birds that visited his feeders, as well as the furry critters. He was the #1 spotter of coyote and deer in his backyard. In more recent years he took up wood turning and could be found thoroughly enjoying himself in his workshop. David turned a large number of the pens that were donated and shipped to troops in Iraq. His favorite way to relax the last few years was resting in his recliner with his wife Jean next to him, his fur baby curled up on his lap, watching the outdoors for whatever wildlife might happen to wander by.
