David Thomas Vogt, 47, passed away July 15, 2009, in Kennebunk, Maine, surrounded by his family, after a courageous battle with cancer. David was born on Sept. 29, 1961, in Fitchburg, Mass.; the third of five children raised by Herbert and Janet Vogt, his loving parents.
David spent the past 30 years living in Georgia, most recently in Cumming, while raising the sunshine of his life, his daughter Sarah Vogt. David watched Sarah graduate from high school in May and she will be attending Georgia Southern University in the fall.
David graduated with a business degree from Georgia State and went directly into business with his father, Herbert Vogt, as a saw filer manufacturing and servicing saw blades for lumber mills. They started Vogt and Son in Covington. David was an exceptional softball player, playing right up until his illness, with his best exploits and incredible memories from his time on the Cutter softball team, which was sponsored by David and his father. He was an avid sports fan, loving all the professional teams in Boston as well as his beloved Georgia Bulldogs football team. His family would also say that he provided the spirit to every family gathering, which occurred several times a year, and he was always the first to take the microphone at the annual Thanksgiving karaoke night to sing his favorite Neil Diamond song and dance along on his happy feet. Camping with his daughter Sarah in the mountains of northern Georgia brought him great joy as a parent and seeing her safely off to college with the family values he instilled in her was his goal in his life.
David also had lifelong friends that played a significant role in his life in Anne and David Jenkins, Jeff Burkard, Jay Casabonne, Jim and Leah Williamson, David Ranieri and Peter Holt.
David was preceded in death by his infant sister, Karen in 1957.
David is survived by his daughter, Sarah; parents, Herb and Janet Vogt of Hampden, Maine; his loving and caregiving sister, Suzanne Bridges of Kennebunk, Maine, who stayed with him in Georgia while he went through his treatments and supported him every day throughout his fight right through his final journey back to Kennebunk to be with family, and her husband, Brent and nephews, Nicholas and Nathaniel and niece, Courtney; brother, Danny Vogt of Manlius, N.Y., and his wife Wendy and nephew, Jonah and niece, Jessica; sister, Rebecca Husted of Columbus, Ohio, and her husband Corey, nephew, Caleb and niece, Erica; and brother, Michael of Raleigh, N.C., and his wife Montie, and niece, Kaitlyn.
