David Alfred Gagne, age 64, Inverness, entered eternal life on Oct. 14, 2013, under the loving care of his wife Cathy and surrounded by family and friends. David was born on Jan. 26, 1949, in Brunswick, Maine, to the late Doue and Viola (Arsenault) Gagne. He served our country in the U.S. Navy
with 24 years of service, retiring with the rank of chief. David then pursued a nursing degree and worked as a nurse at Bayonet Point. He later was employed by the City of Inverness utilities department. David's passion was serving others. He did this on a daily basis by assisting guests, along with Cathy, at the Lake House Bed and Breakfast. We will all remember his smiling face and friendly demeanor at that facility.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 38 years, Cathy Lynn Johnson; his daughters Jennifer Gagne-Sanders, Clovis, Calif., and Joy Dill Hendrix, Jacksonville, Fla.; brothers Dennis (Donna), Daniel (Debra), Donald (Vicky), Dominic (Susan), Douglas (Sue), Dexter (Elly); sisters Doris (Gary) and Denise (Pete); three grandsons; a granddaughter; and many nieces and nephews and extended family.
A tribute to David's life will be held on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, at 3 p.m. at Lake House Bed and Breakfast with Pastor Greg Kell officiating and military honors given by VFW
Post 4337 of Inverness. Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home with Crematory is assisting the family with arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorials in David's memory may be made to Hospice of Citrus Co., PO Box 641270, Beverly Hills, FL 34464 or the donor's favorite local charity.
