David Cook Wilby

AGE: 61 • Kingston, NH

David Cook Wilby, of Kingston, NH, 61, passed away October 10, 2013, after a fourteen month battle with brain cancer. Born in Philadelphia, PA, to Carlton and Miriam (Cook) Wilby, he grew up in Haddonfield NJ, graduated from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Hamilton, MA. Dave worked as a contractor, served as building inspector for the town of Newton, and was employed by Wal-Mart / Logistics Division, but his passion was teaching and tutoring mathematics. Dave enjoyed reading, singing and playing guitar. He was an avid outdoorsman who went canoeing, sailing, hiking and biking. Active in the church community throughout his life, he gave of himself fully wherever he went. His smile and infectious laugh will always be remembered. This loving husband and devoted father will be deeply missed.
