Moreno Family

On October 25th Dave tragically passed away leaving behind his 4 year old son Daxton and wife Nicole. Dave’s sudden death will not only leave a huge void in Nicole and Daxton’s hearts, but will leave Nicole to pay for the funeral expenses and financially care for Dax alone. Nicole is a full-time nursing student and will graduate within this next year. She currently doesn’t have the means to financially care for Daxton without Dave’s support.

Dave served in the United States Marine Corp and was honorably discharged due to diabetes. He was a dedicated and proud Ironworker for Local 433. Dave loved the Lord, and continually sought after Him no matter the trials he endured.

Dave loved Dax more than anything in the world and was very proud of the little man he is becoming. Dax looked up to his daddy and would often say  “Daddy is my biggest protector, no one is as strong as my daddy except for Jesus”. Dave and Daxton’s favorite thing to do together was go to Sea World and visit Shamu. Other things they enjoyed were park trips, ice cream dates and going to the movies.Nicole will do her very best to ensure these memories remain with Daxton forever.

As Nicole’s best friends, we wanted to create this page to ease her burden and support her financially during this difficult time. No donation is too small and your support will mean so much to Nicole and Dax . We know it would also mean the world to Dave that his family is taken care of. Please leave your memories and prayers below for Nicole and Dax to read.

We will update this page when we have more details about Dave’s service and celebration of life.
