David went home to be with the Lord on August 6th, 2020 surrounded by his family at his home in Denver, Colorado.  A Denver native, David was born on December 31st, 1946.  David was the second of 4 children: Margie, Marsha, and Keith.  He attended Lincoln High School and enlisted in the Army at age 17. David faithfully served his country in the United States Army as a talented tank mechanic stationed in Germany. Upon his Honorable Discharge, David then spent the remainder of his professional career as a Denver Law Enforcement Officer for 36 years.


During his retirement from public service, David spent his time as a skilled mechanic and tradesman as a subject matter expert for just about everything.  He was known for always being available for lending assistance to his friends, family and those with any project or problem.  David was a man of his word and meant what he said, often not afraid to tell you if you were doing it wrong!   With all of his accolades and achievements, David remained a humble man who celebrated quietly, but reveled in the accomplishments of others showcasing this man of genuine character.


David is survived by his wife, Monarae; his daughters Stephanie and husband Eric, Tiffany, Janel and husband Mark; stepdaughters Marlarae and partner Nick, Hannah and husband Michael: stepson Shawn; grandchildren Nader, Emad, Breck, Adrick, Gage, Jake, Molly, Luke, Raelee, Stevielynn; great-grandchildren Eva and Leo. He was preceded in death by his grandson, Matthew.  He will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends.  And were he here to speak to all of us, his final word that he would say is "Bye!"

Memories Timeline


  1. I had the privilege of meeting David when we were putting in a full size swimming pool for a baptism at church. First we were going to put it in the sanctuary but David wouldn't have no part of that. So him and I and Monarae dragged the pool outside and commence to putting it up in the parking lot. But as we were filling it we realize that all the water was going to be on one end because the parking lot was sloped. so finally we settled on putting the pool downstairs and it barely fit there. We were there late into the evening and most of the next day. I told David next time we'll have Pastor get a smaller baptismal. David looked at me and said there will not be a next time for him. But he was there to tear it down after we were done. I didn't get to know David well enough, but I know the man had a heart of a warrior!

  2. Dave and I worked together for several years.  He always had my back.
    A good man, an Army veteran,  police officer, husband and Dad.  RIP my friend I will see ya down the road at roll call. 

  3. David was one of my Training  Officers when I was assigned to The Traffic Division after graduating the Police Academy.  We became friends after our two months as being partners.  A friendship blossomed into 40+ years.  I was blessed to have David as my friend.  As a funeral director,  David and MonaRae entrusted their family members into our care.  It is a privilege to have assisted.  And , now, it is a distinct honor and privilege  to have been asked by his family to assist with his services..  David, thank you for the the days that are gone.  And I wish you a safe journey as you leave this earth and are now at home and at peace with OUR LORD, a just reward that you have earned. Until we meet again, my friend.

  4. I got to spend some time with David and get to know his sense of humor earlier this summer. Him and his wife, his sister in law and his step daughter Hannah and her husband Michael came to visit us in Grand Junction. It was a nice trip to some wineries in Palisade, dinners and late chats in our backyard. It was nice getting to spend some time with him! Wonderful memories that will carry on for a long time. Rest In Peace now David. Love, Megan Henry

  5. You were my best friend for many, many years. Our time together on the force and all the time after our retirement. The time you and MonaRae spent with us in San Diego, and all the adventures we had on the road will be great memories. 
    Rest in peace my dear friend, you will be deeply missed. I'll see you at roll call above.
