For recreation, Grund likes to read, golf and participate in water sports.
He squeezes in those activities while raising two daughters, Mallori, 9, and Maci, 6, with his wife of 15 years, the former Shawna Lowry. They met through her brother who was a friend of David’s. Shawna is a teacher for Peru Community Schools.
Asked if Mallori and/or Maci could become fifth generation Grunds — and the first distaff members — to join the family business, Grund responded:
“I suppose they could be, but I would encourage them to pursue what interests them and makes them happy.”
A wise decision — from the bench or the kitchen table.
