Dave was raised in Phoenicia and was a 1981 graduate of Onteora High School. In addition to his career as a professional mechanic, he also served his community working for the Town of Esopus Highway Department. Dave was most recently employed as a property manager for his dear friends at Tahlia Cedar Farm. He prided himself on attention to detail in every task he undertook. Dave was an avid classic car aficionado and skilled outdoorsman. Among his greatest joys were spending time in his custom garage and sharing good food and a toast with friends and family around the fire pit. Dave mentored many who became his hands and legs as he fought a courageous battle against ALS. Dave is survived by his mother Dolores Quinn of Kingston, his brother Michael Quinn of Kingston, and his loving partner Lisa Sambora of Shokan. He and his family are forever grateful to the members of Dave’s circle of care. Private funeral arrangements are under the guidance of the Joseph V.

We didn’t know you nearly long enough, but your memory will never leave our hearts. While it’s hard for a young man to experience the loss of such a cherished friend and mentor, I wouldn’t trade the lessons you gave him for anything. Hayden will carry your legacy and the skills you taught him, and all of us for that matter... forever. No more suffering my friend.
