In Memory

Dave Schindler

David Schindler
Date Deceased: 08-28-2013
Age at Death: 61
Cause of Death: Leukemia


David S. Schindler Schindler, David S. age 61, peacefully succumbed to prolonged illness at home in Tucson, AZ. Originally from Cleveland, OH, Dave was a proud graduate of Case Western Reserve University. He spent most of his teen years in California, before moving back to Ohio. He also lived in Minneapolis for several years and finally relocated to Tucson at the end of his life. He worked for Midwest Gear, Job Boss, Black Dot and American Clean Energy Systems. Dave's passions were sailing, swimming, water polo, tennis and nickel slots. He relished a hearty meal, a creative story, easy conversation and shared laughter. He loved to explore flea markets and museums, and could make a total stranger feel like a long-lost friend. Dave was predeceased by his father, step-father and sister and is survived by his dear mother, two wonderful daughters, one grandchild, multiple nieces and nephews, and two brothers. He will be greatly missed. Private family service. "Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles, I've only gone to rest a little while. Although, my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my hurt and given me relief. So dry your eyes and remember me, not me as I am now, but as I used to be. Understand, in your hearts, I've only gone to rest a little while. As long as I have the love of each of you, I can live my life in the hearts of all of you."

Dave was a friendly, easy- going fellows who always had a ready smile.  I didn't know Dave that well, although II believe that he and his family lived in Tiburon, my hometown, file awhile.  I always used to confuse Dave's first name with that of his  older brother, ( good thing I never did that on the air in sports radio witna player!)  When I would run into him in the hallways at Redwood between classes, this always seemed to happen as I also knew his older bro from around town, ( think he might have been an acquaintance of my brother.)  Dave, being the gentleman that he was would just shrug it off and we both would have a good chuckle. Sounds as though even though he left us too soon that he had a good life with a chance to live in different places around the country and a career that had him doing a variety of things. Thanks to Ross for the nice tribute!
