He will be remembered for his genuine love of people and music in particular rock and roll, musicals and Gershwin. Two of his recent fond memories were going to Proctor's to see Fiddler on the Roof and going to hear the group,Moody Blues. David also enjoyed going to Glenville Queen for pancakes and he appreciated the way staff welcomed him to their facility. David is survived by sister, Betsie and her husband, Henry and their two children, Teresa and Andrew and by his brother, Bill and his wife, Lori and their daughter, Kathryn. Additionally he is survived by cousins, John Hume of Mariaville and his wife, Connie; as well as out of town cousins, Frank Gaynor of Franklin, MA, and Sally Gaynor and Peter Gaynor, both of Malvern, PA; and his longtime good friend, Judy Foshag of Glenville, NY.
