David Tarqueno
Our dear son left us with broken hearts on December 24, 2020. David Tarqueno, 61, died due to complications of Covid-19 in Norwalk hospital.
David left behind an incredible amount of friends who loved him. His personality was like no other, his presence could light up a room. His smile, his laughter and his humor will remain with every heart he touched.
David loved fishing - he was out there every fishing season opening day. Nature and animals were an important part of his life. He was devoted to his family and friends. That devotion was selfless, his trust boundless, and love endless.
David graduated from Staples High School in Westport.
He is survived by his parents: Marianne and Joseph Tarqueno; sister Lisa Tarqueno-Crawford, brother Peter Tarqueno, his aunt Donna Fischer, niece Christine Crawford, nephew Cole Crawford and his beloved dog Harry.

Miss you so much!
Missing you so much! Keep listening to the voice mail you left me on May 11th. Love hearing you! I treasure all the photos I can look at and the video I was given. It’s such a gift, especially being with your precious Harry! I know you are here with us. We love you so much! And I know you’re with my Phoebe! Miracles really do happen when love is forever & life goes on in Spirit & Truth. (First Corinthians 13:13)

Marianne, Joe, Lisa, and Peter, I am so sorry for Davis‘s passing. What a shocker. I’m really glad I got to see him at my mothers memorial a couple years ago. I tried to reach out to Peter to find how to contact you folks, but did not hear back. I’d love to have a chance to talk to you if you want to give me a call. 603–345–4136.-sadly, with condolences, Evan Greenwald

David...You are the true meaning of a love that lasts forever! My heart is completely broken to have this world without you in it. Since the moment I met you I have always wanted to be where you are. And without you I was always missing you. The best memories of my life are with you! You were a true Earth Angel, who will never ever be forgotten. I wished so badly that this was all a bad dream. It just hurts so badly cause I miss you so much and wanted to always have the chance to show you while you were here how much I love you. I cherish every single memory we ever shared. No one in the world can compare to you! Especially, all the laughter you were the cause of....so much laughing went on because of you being part clown! I can’t bear the thought of not having you here to make me laugh once more. I wish so much for that to happen instead of all these tears and pain. You were a friend to everyone. To know you was to love you. Truly the best person I have ever been blessed to know and love and have loved me. I thank God for the special love we shared! Because of the person you were, I know what it was to be truly loved. Nothing will ever change how much you meant to me. Thank you for the signs you have sent me during this time of incredible grief. My heart will never ever stop loving you. I pray for all of us that are hurting so badly over missing you. I already know what it’s like to miss you as I have spent most of the last 15 years missing you, but always with the hope to spend more time with you again. I will treasure every moment we had in this life and always regret that we were not able to make more of those moments! You will always be part of my heart and soul forever. My heart will go on and one day I know our souls will be reunited! Love you Forever and Always!

I am so saddened by the loss of my dear friend David. He epitomized the ideals of friendship, kindness, generosity and optimism. We both loved summer and going out on the boat (his or mine). It will never be the same now going to Compo Beach marina. Although I and so many are missing him terribly I also know that he is in a better place and one day we'll be together again. Love you David.

Dave and his good buddy PONCHO and mine came down to the beach my office you know COMPO BEACH when I lived there, he pulls up to my car and says I just got done fishing opening season day and he says to me we tipped over and we lost both our phones in the water. I said what was so important that you had to bring your phones out fishing and now they’re destroyed cracked me up. Then another time while I was living in Miami he came down with his good buddy PONCHO again and we met up on 3rd Street Miami Beach we had a ball hanging out I have got to go through my videos of the past and put up a picture of us hanging out still again at COMPO beach we saw a lot of each other they’re great place that beach

David was in a variety of my classes at Bedford JHS, his personality always brought a smile to my face, and his sense of humor always lightened up the atmosphere. Great kid. Sal Cassano
