With much sadness and a heavy heart, I share the news that Dave succumbed to his disease on Monday, September 2nd. He fought brain cancer like the brave soldier he was, but some battles are bigger than we are strong. True to his nature, he never gave up even in his last days. He loved his family more than anything in the world and we will miss him so so dearly. You will always be missed, but never forgotten, as you are indelibly etched in our heats and minds. Until we meet again, Rest In Peace now Dave, you’ve earned your place in heaven. 

Dave is survived by his wife Julie, and his two daughters Brooke and Mia. His parents Jeff and Marilyn, and two siblings Jon and Lindsey. Of course his niece Joslyn and Nephew Jackson, whom he undoubtedly be smothering with kisses if he were here now. 

Officer Imber was a proud member of the law enforcement community and of the Lathrup Village Police Department.

Dave was born in the City of Southfield, MI and started his career serving others by joining the Army in 2005 at age 24. Dave first joined the Michigan National Guard, 425th Unit out of Selfridge, MI as a Platoon Leader. Dave later went on to the 125th Infantry in 2008 and fought overseas in Iraq. In 2009/2010 Dave was then stationed with the 82nd Airborne Division. Currently, and  served in the Army Reserves as a Brigade Intelligence Officer for the 272nd.

After serving his country for several years, Dave got married in 2010 to his wife Julie. Dave and Julie have two daughters, Mia who is 4 years old and Brooke who is 14 years old. While making valuable memories and supporting his family, Dave went on to work Corrections for Livingston County in 2016. Dave then began pursuing a career in Police and soon became an Officer here in the City of Lathrup Village.

Dave has dedicated his life to helping others within both his community and his country. Personally, I know Dave to be a completely selfless person and very humble. Dave fought with everything he had to beat this disease that came over night and without sign. Please keep his family in your prayers.

All donations are greatly appreciated and will help the Imber family.
