Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
David James Ulledahl (DJay), 41, was born on June 26, 1981, and passed away on November 23, 2022.
Survivors include his brother Daniel Ulledahl (wife, Sarah; children: Emma, Daniel, Jr.); father, Darwin Ulledahl (wife, Chan; her children: Jennifer, Joseph); and mother, Lorraine Gieringer (his half-sisters, Elizabeth, Isabella). He is also survived by two paternal aunts and their families, plus two maternal uncles and their families.
He became a very talented magician in his teen years, learning to use his carpentry skills to build many of his props, “tricks,” and beautiful furniture. He had an early history with alcohol, but primarily drugs. He spent about 20 years on the streets until he suffered an aneurysm (traumatic brain injury) in May, 2020. After several months in the hospital, he experienced about 2½ years of nursing home life. In September, 2022, he joyfully moved into an apartment, assuring all that his past was past. No longer earthly bound, we know he has joined many family members and friends now helping him fly higher and better than he ever could here. There will be no services. We ask, though, that you take a moment to toast him and his creativity, charisma, cunning smile and very wide streak of deviousness.
