Flatau, David C.
David C. Flatau of Sherman, Connecticut passed away suddenly and much too soon on April 29, 2013.Beloved son of Sara Cummins Flatau, currently of Silver Spring, Maryland, and the late Jack Flatau, David was born in Danbury, Connecticut on March 6, 1956 and grew up in New Fairfield, moving to Sherman in 1986. He graduated from the University of Connecticut with a BA in Political Science. Just a few short years after college graduation David became the successful owner of his well-known bridge and fence construction companyanda well-respected member of the local business community. David loved life. And all who knew David loved him. Everywhere David went, near and far, someone always greeted him with the happiest smiles and warm words. David cherished the earth and loved to gaze at its beauty. He had a child-like wonder about the world around him and shared his passions with abandon. David had a vivid imagination and was truly a creative genius. His genius ranged from decorating his nearly constructed swimming pool with Nemo wall paper to envisioning the area's most beautiful golf course, Bull's Bridge, to building his beautiful home that he loved dearly. A generous man and a good man, he was prone to random acts of kindness just to see people smile. He was kind to all and treated everyone with respect, no matter who they were or where they came from. David was like the sun among the many stars. A bright light in the dark.Kindness unmatched, a lover and beloved by all. He has gone too soon but will be with us always. In addition to his mother, David is survived by his beloved son Tyler, and sisters Jane Ross of New York City and Alison Flatau of Potomac, Maryland, Linda Mittel, and his love Nancy Stein and dear friends Bill and Corinna Hettinger.
