David Joseph Verstraete
David Joseph Verstraete, age 42, passed away unexpectedly while sleeping on September 9, 2020 from sudden cardiac arrest.
David loved and excelled at basketball. His passion was music, whether he was playing guitar or saxophone, or listening to his favorites, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and all the great guitar players.
David’s greatest joy in life was being a father. He was a devoted and proud dad. He dearly loved his family and friends. Everyone who knew David always spoke of his big heart. His lifelong generosity extended to not only friends, but also to strangers. In keeping with his giving nature, David is an organ donor, and he will now be helping many others in their time of need.
David is survived by his wife Sandi; children Zoey, Devin, and Ayden; parents Gary and Lyn Verstraete; sister Jennifer Riley (Matt); grandparents Alberta Verstraete, Darrell and Evie Wilson; parents-in-law Kim Graham and Jim Mullins; sisters-in-law Tabitha Brown, Kayce Kern (Nick); many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
David will be greatly missed, and we will all remember him with love. Private services will be held at a later time.
