DAVID RECEIVED 10 RADIATION TREATMENTS @ PENN UNIVERSITY IN PHILADELPHIA, PA, FOR THE CANCER THAT MOVED TO THE STEM OF HIS BRAIN. DAVID RECEIVED ONE IMMUNOTHERPY TREATMENT FOR HIS CANCER IN THE LUNG.

ON APRIL 7, 2017 DAVID WAS RELEASED FROM PENN UNIVERISTY AND TRANSPORTED TO HIS HOME IN GOSHEN. SHORTLY AFTER ARRIVING HOME, DAVID PASSED PEACEFULLY WITH MANY FAMILY MEMBERS SURROUNDING HIM.

ANYONE WHO KNEW OUR FATHER, KNEW HE WAS A VERY HARDWORKING, LOVING AND GENEROUS MAN THAT WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR ANYONE, ESPECIALLY FAMILY. HE RAISED HIS 4 CHILDREN TO BE THE SAME.  MANY PEOPLE HAD BEEN UNDER HIS EXCELLENT CARE IN  COOPER HOSPITAL, SHORE MEMORIAL AND CAPE REGIONAL AS AN RN. THEN FINALLY AS A CRITICAL CARE TRANSPORT NURSE FOR MILLVILLE RESCUE SQUAD.

DAVID WAS THE SOLE PROVIDER FOR HIS FAMILY. WE ARE HAVING A BENEFIT IN REMEMBRANCE OF DAVID AND TO HELP WITH THE MEDICAL BILLS AND FUNERAL EXPENSES, WHICH WERE INCURRED.

A BENEFIT IS BEING HELD FOR DAVID
