David James Breault, 56, died on April 7th, 2020. David was the Chief of Police for Houston, MN for 18 years before retiring in 2019.
David was born on March 13th, 1964, to Dan and Janice Breault in Oakland, California. After moving to Minnesota as a teenager, David met and married Mary Miller. David and Mary raised four daughters: Jessamine, Amanda, Theresa, and Anna. David worked as a sheet metal worker in the Twin Cities for many years. He also managed a bar in the Twin Cities, where he was known for his wonderful sense of humor, even temper, and ability to quell would-be dangerous situations. Undoubtedly, it were these skills that drove him towards his second career. While raising his family in the Twin Cities, David went back to school and graduated with a degree in law enforcement. Eventually, this career would take the Breault family to Houston, Minnesota, where David accepted a position to be Chief of Police of the town. After being raised in Oakland and having lived in the Twin Cities, David rejoiced in finding a home in Houston. David will be remembered as a Chief of Police who was quick to smile, slow to judgment, and cool under pressure. He truly will leave the world a better place for the many lives he touched and for the lasting impression he made on the entire Houston community.
David is survived by his four daughters: Jessamine (Ben) Langston of La Crosse, WI; Amanda (Brandon) Meyer of La Crosse, WI; Theresa (Sam) Montgomery of Ramstein AFB, Germany; and Anna (Alex) Benda of Houston, MN. Additionally, he is survived by his five grandchildren: Noah, Adam, Elaine, Warren, and Josephine; four siblings, including his sister, Denise Breault of Houston, MN; his mother, Janice Bangert; and many other loving family and friends.
