David Anthony Wight Cromwell, 52 years old from Houston, Texas passed away peacefully from a long battle with congestive heart failure on March 21, 2016 and is now home with God.

David was born March 18,1964 he was the son of Anthony Kitteridge Cromwell of New York City and Laura Sue Cromwell (Simmons) of Houston, Texas. He attended St. Thomas Moore Catholic School, Marion High School, the University of Houston and ITT Technical College.

As a child, David enjoyed a life full of adventure. From the age of seven he was commandeering golf carts on a family vacation to a Dude Ranch. He is also well remembered by his family for cutting the security line in Charles De Gaulle Airport and being detained by the French Police.

David grew up in Maplewood in Houston, Texas. He loved yoga, cooking and carpentry. He had an innate knack for building and recently designed and built, on his own, a large tree house for his nephews that included electricity and air conditioning. He spent 20+ years in the car industry in Houston, Austin and Los Angeles. Before he got sick, David spent his years traveling and working in Central and South America, in addition to a year in Iraq.

David loved the beach, conservation and most of all spending time with his son, family and many nieces and nephews. David had a zest for life and always enjoyed being the life of the party. If you measured life by experiences, he lived a much longer life than most of us.

David spent his last days designing and building beautiful jewelry representative of his faith for his many Doctors, nurses and family. David's final selfless contribution of being a registered organ and tissue donor provided continued blessings to 88 other individuals.

David was preceded in death by his grandparents, Doris and Berthold Sadkin of Panorama,TX and Mary Claire and Dr. Henry Cromwell of Houston, TX. and his father, Anthony Kitteridge Cromwell of Geneva, TX.

He leaves behind his cherished mother, Laura Sue Cromwell and devoted step-father, Charles G. Myers both of Houston. His beloved son, Christian David Cromwell of Austin.

Cromwell, Cassidy Cromwell, Sydnye Cromwell, Kristina Cromwell, Henry Dolan and Christopher, Matthew, Nicholas and Noah Stomberg. His special Uncle Stephen Wight Simmons of Houston, TX and his many other aunts, uncles, cousins, and step-siblings.

David always held a special place in his heart for Stephanie Powell and her family of Conroe, TX., the mother of his proudest accomplishment, his son Christian.
