David Michael Braun, 59, passed away peacefully at his home on Feb. 21, 2015, surrounded by family after a courageous three-year battle with cancer.

David was born in East Cleveland, Ohio and grew up in Depew, New York. He moved to Nassau Bay, Texas, in 1986 and graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in marketing. For many years, David worked in consumer sales. In 2005, he joined the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership (BAHEP) as Aerospace Marketing Manager, where he was a strong advocate for manned space flight. He also coordinated efforts to make Congress aware of flood insurance concerns affecting homeowners and businesses. Throughout treatment for his illness, he rarely missed a day of work.

David served as Mayor Pro Tem on the Nassau Bay City Council. He was on the city council from 2002-2010; leaving office due to term limits, and was re-elected in 2011. During his council tenure, Nassau Bay Town Center was developed. He also was active at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church where he assisted with CCE classes for 8 years. He and Angela sponsored engaged couples to prepare them for marriage in the church. David also served on the building committee that coordinated extensive church expansion and renovation.

He was named Citizen of the Year by the Clear Creek Education Foundation in 2013.

As soon as his son was old enough to join the Nauticat Swim Team, David began volunteering and served the team for 12 years. He enjoyed attending Michael's high school swim meets and water polo games. David loved working in his yard, and if he was working on a home project, he would not stop until the job was completed. Family vacations were planned after the summer swim season and the Nassau Bay 4 th of July Parade.

Over the years, David and his family hosted students from different countries through United Space School and Texas A&M Singing Cadets. It was a comfort for his family to hear from many of them at this time.

David was fortunate to raise his family, attend church, work and volunteer in the city he loved, Nassau Bay. The family wishes to acknowledge the many wonderful friends and neighbors who called, visited and prayed for him.

David's survivors include his wife, Angela; son, Michael; parents, Dan and Sadie; sister, Kathy; brothers, Danny and Chris; and Angela's parents, Albert and Estella Garcia.

A public vigil will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 25, and a funeral Mass will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 26, both at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the St. Paul's Parking Lot Fund at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, 18223 Point Lookout Drive, Nassau Bay, TX 77058.

David will be laid to rest in the Mount Olivet Catholic Cemetery, Dickinson, Texas.
