This Site is dedicated to David Turrisi-Chung

David passed after a long battle with cancer on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at 9:27pm while being held by his sons, Daniel and Paul who were being held by their mom, his loving wife Kathy. There were a total of twelve family members and friends in the room ... and David....who were singing Amazing Grace and on the last verse David took his final earthly breath.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred. Donations will go towards David's medical expenses and the college expenses of David's youngest son, Daniel. See Donate tab above.

David was an amazing man and he touched many hearts and souls. He will live on through the lives he touched.

He will truly be missed.

Join us in celebrating David’s life. Please "light a candle" and "sign the guest book" to share your memories of him with his family. Also share your photos and videos.

A memorial service to celebrate David's life will be on Saturday July 30, 2016 at 10:00a.m. with welcoming music and photographic tribute starting at 9:45a.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church in Hackettstown, NJ.

Thank you for all of your prayers for so many years. May you continue to pray for our strength to endure and to carry on David's life legacy. We are so blessed.

David—The Star that Shines

The night of your passing I saw the moon

It shone brightly in the sky

As if on its way to a new home on the other side
So, I said goodbye.

And thought, he is going to a better place

This morning, I saw the sun

But I did not recognize you

Until you showed yourself as a rainbow

And we embraced once again

And, I realized that you never left us

Today, this third day

As the new day rolls over

I think of a precious star—David

In this life, you live it as a true psalmist

And, I think of the things you loved:



Joy and happiness

Life itself




And I realize that you are not gone…

Like the moon and the sun

Which rolls over from one day to the next

You are surely here with us

as it is when we embrace life and the people around us

We must all remember to embrace, to love the things you loved

This is that light which we saw in you, in the moon

It is the remembrance said by you, through the rainbow

This is how we can walk with you

David, you will always be by our side

Our son, our brother and our father, our partner in life—our beloved David.

This is what
David send to the office
His last email when they send him a card.....

To be reminded of everyone's kindness, care and thoughtfulness was heartwarming and a great cheer for me (and family).

With the warmest of regards, David

Yes, David was one kind, caring and thoughtful person, one I was proud to know. He always saw the good in everyone.

His first birthday in the Lord's house and I can see him singing and smiling.

Happy Birthday Dave, miss you, love you but happy that you are with your maker free from suffering.

You are missed by many!

Psalms 31:15, "My times are in Your hands."

We don't know what tomorrow will bring but we know Who holds our tomorrows.

Suddenly the simplest tasks
Have become a pleasure
suddenly life's become
A priceless, precious treasure

What gives life this breath of spring
Save a gift from God above
How good of him to bestow
on us the gift of love.

For now there is new meaning
In everything I do
and I know you are the reason
For I'm in love with you.

My thoughts are with you and your family. I'm deeply saddened that David lost his heroic battle, and I join the many people who know you and knew him in wishing you strength and love.
