David Paul Popoff Obituary
Popoff, David
David (Paul) Popoff was born to Paul (Michael) Popoff and Mary (Tolmachoff) Popoff on December 6, 1921, in Glendale, Arizona. At the age of 91, while in the care of Hospice of the Valley, Dave died peacefully at his home in Phoenix on April 22, 2013, surrounded by his loved ones. Dave survived all of his immediate family; his sister, Anne Babashoff and 5 brothers, John, Mike, Alex, Peter and Morris. Dave's parents immigrated from Russia in 1912, the same year that Arizona became a state. They soon established a farm on 75th Avenue in Glendale, Arizona. He worked the farm with his Father. His mother died in 1963 and in the early 1980's, Dave cared for his elderly Father. A few years after his Father's death, Dave sold the farm and moved to his new home in Phoenix in 1983 where he remained for 30 years. His farming abilities were transferred to gardening and thoroughbred horses. Dave is cherished by many friends, nieces, nephews and cousins. He has always been an inspiration to many, lived his life in integrity and will be greatly missed by all that know him. Services will be at Menke Funeral Home on Saturday, April 27, at 10am (preceded by viewing at 9am). Burial will be at 11am at the Russian Molokan Cemetery on 75th Avenue, Glendale, Arizona.
