David "Dave" A. Dubinski, 72, of Coatesville, passed away suddenly on June 25, 2013, while on vacation in the Outer Banks, N.C.
Dave was the loving husband of Joan E. Torma Dubinski and they shared 47 years of marriage.
Born on Oct. 3, 1940, in Larksville, he was a son of the late John and Mary Koliga Dubinski.
Dave attended King's College before serving his country in the U.S. Army. He later worked for Pepperidge Farm for 35 years before retiring.
His love of nature was apparent each and every day, whether picking up litter or caring for the flora of his surroundings. Dave was a very kind and caring person. He was everyone's friend and would go out of his way to lend a helping hand.
His favorite place to be after retirement was the Outer Banks or spending time with his grandchildren. His family's only solace is that he lost his life doing something he loved.
Dave was preceded in death by three brothers.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by daughter, Lisa D. Godschall, Lumberton, N.J.; son, David G. Dubinski, Chadds Ford, Pa.; daughter, Lynn E. Takach, Oxford, Pa.; seven grandchildren who adored their Pop-pop; brother, Rusty Dubinski, Loxahatchie, Fla., two sisters, Marie Kopka, Plymouth, and Marcia Hendershot, Sayre.
