Van Dusen, David Aaron

David Aaron Van Dusen, 1980 – 2020. A good person. Married to beautiful Diana (nee Abrams), father of Anthony and Zoe Van Dusen. Brother of caring Daniel Adam Van Dusen; son of Mayor George and Susan Van Dusen. He was proud to be the Mayor's son. A hard worker; a strong partner who said what he meant and meant what he said. A raucous sense of humor. He reached the happiest part of his life with a wonderful, loving family; and lived in his dream of a delightful brick house on a corner with a white picket fence. David enjoyed baseball and collecting memorabilia and worked almost 20 years at the DMV. He was a kind and caring person who will be much missed. To keep everyone safe and healthy, the service will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Skokie Community Foundation, 8022 Lincoln Ave., Skokie, IL 60077, www.skokiecommunityfoundation.org.

This is a great loss for our community. George I admire your selflessness. David was always eager to help people anyway he could and he got that from you. Susan I will always remember you reading to our first grade class, the Oreos, and the sleep overs at the Skokie house with my buddy Dave. Danny stay strong, Dave taught you the Jedi ways. Diana, Tony, and Zoe I'm so sorry but the legacy continues through you guys. RIP DVD
