Jacob Frank

YEAR LEGACY 2 2
My motivation for this years ride is to honor my late Grandfather in law, David Brosseit. Dave not only was a die hard snowmobiler and roll model to the sport, but he was a great mentor and grandfather to my wife and I. Dave had gone through many bouts with various cancers over the years and despite having his lower intestine and part of his abdomen removed over 35 years ago, he still found a way to ride his snowmobile every year and continue to thirst for life. He is a textbook example of the phrase "Never give up" and definitely did not go gentile into his good night. Dave passed away December 1st, 2021, the official opening of snowmobile season in the UP. As a part of the Snowball Cancer Challenge 2021, I will join Nick and a group of riders on Feb 17, 2021 to attempt to ride 500+ miles in ONE DAY! I along with the other riders will obtain pledges and donations to keep motivated on the long ride. The money raised will go to the Keller Family Community Foundation to support their mission. All donations will be tax deductible.

I had the joy and privilege of riding trails with Dave, his daughter Diana and granddaughter Lauren. Dave & Dorothy welcomed me into their wonderful home where we all enjoyed food and games after riding; Dorothy always the upper hand with cards (Lauren up there too and Diana the mathematician.......well, that goes without saying, we had no handicap). Admittedly Dave was the pro at quoting lines from holiday movies, all the while one of his famous fires crackled in the background. Dave's joy and passion for sledding provided me unparalleled adventure, memories and experiences of the northwoods I'll always treasure, and which will always be tied to Dave and his wonderful wife and family. Jacob, thank you for this opportunity, your raising funds in his honor, and all you've done for Dave and his family. Happy Trails man....

St. Germain ATV Club

Jake, Thank you for doing this ride in Dave's honor. Dave was our much beloved trail boss for the St. Germain ATV Club, and he is missed not only for what he offered to the club but also for his friendship. Since snowmobiling was the sport that brought him and Dorothy to this area, this is a fitting tribute.

Dave is the Father of my only child, Mike Brosseit. He was always a loving Dad and kept Mike a part of his life even though I moved far away. Dave was a very fine man. Thank you for this cancer challenge.

Dave was always willing to share his mechanical knowledge with those in need. We hope this rigorous ride will generate funds for medical research. Good luck to all on the ride.
