David Isaac Waszkowski, 34 years old, was born May 19, 1987 and passed away May 3, 2022.
David suddenly and unexpectedly passed away late Tuesday evening, preparing for a visit with his children. He devastatingly leaves behind two beautiful children, Hermione (10yo) and Noah (6yo); Amanda Bowers, the mother of his children; his parents Edward and Pamela Waszkowski; and six dear siblings, Edward (Judith) Waszkowski, Brian Waszkowski, Paul (Lydia) Waszkowski, Erin (Merle) Walker, Philip (Ashley) Waszkowski and Bethany (Brad) Papa. He was the baby among the seven children. He will also be greatly missed by the beloved family pets Buddy, Fable, Bella and Sonic.
Dave was a very hardworking electrician by trade for many years. Growing up in Northfield, Ohio he graduated from Nordonia High School. He also lived in Garrettsville and most recently Bedford. He loved spending his free time with his family in the yard swimming in the pool, camping out, giving the kids rides on the lawn mower, his scooter, and bicycles around the neighborhood. He also enjoyed video games with his family or just watching movies with his kids. One of the family’s most intimate memories is when he would exchange “Love You’s” with the kids… “Love you Hermione”, “Love you Dad.” Love you Noah,” “Love you Dad.” Then they would raise it to, “Love you higher to the stars!”
Dave also liked his music and playing his drums which now belong to his children. So much more could be said about his dancing and singing with the kids, cherishing holiday time with the family, bonfires in the backyard with the kids and their neighborhood friends, putting together some model cars with Noah or reading a little bible with Hermione. One of the many things that stand out as bittersweet, is that he was unloading his car of the food and snacks he was going to share with Hermione and Noah, and being excited to spend the weekend with his children, as he departed this world. We all love you and will miss you deeply for the rest of our lives, In Jesus’ Name, Your Family and many Friends.
