David A. Vallecorsa Jr. Obituary

David A. Vallecorsa Jr. began his journey into this life on January 31, 1941. He was born in Aliquippa, PA to David A. Vallecorsa Sr. and Flora Merriman.

As a young boy he moved with his parents and four siblings to Fontana, California where he attended school and graduated from Fontana High School. Upon graduation he joined the United States Air force, where he proudly served for 20 years. In 1960, when stationed at Beale Air Force Base he met and married Peggy Linda Prater and for the next 56 years they raised three daughters, Angela Vallecorsa Vandell, Donna Vallecorsa Hodges and Amy Vallecorsa Rue and as a military family they traveled the world over until his retirement from active military service in 1978.

Upon his retirement from the military, David went back to school and earned two college degrees and went to work for the military in a Civil Service capacity and again worked for 20 more years before retiring for good in 2000.

David is preceded in death by his father and those left to honor him are his wife, his three daughters, two sons-in-law Troy Hodges and Sam Vandell, his mother Flora, his four siblings, nine grandchildren and five great grandchildren.

David achieved a great many goals in his life but the happiest one of all was being called "Papa", as he leaves behind a great legacy to remember and to carry on his traditions and values.

He left us to begin the next part of his journey on November 12, 2016. As he was surrounded by his family and felt love and peace as he said Good-bye. He left the same way he lived, with Honor, Respect and Dignity. We love you!!!

A memorial with a reception to follow will be held at the Marysville Veterans Memorial Center located at 211 17th St. and Hwy. 70, Marysville on January 28, 2017 at 1:00 pm.
