He married Patricia Maguire of Lynn, and after many years of a vibrant marriage, he survived her passing in 2003. David possessed a generous heart and enjoyed life and laughter. He was a skilled and avid golfer and a long-time member of the Pocasset Golf Club in Falmouth and recently the Eagle Creek Golf and Country Club of Naples. He loved walking along Lowdermilk Beach in Naples with his best friend and partner Claire O’Connor, and relaxing with family and friends on the deck of the home he owned most of his adult life in Osterville on Cape Cod.
