David Oller Kane

Age 71, passed peacefully in his sleep on September 27, 2021. He was the son of the late Peter and Helen Jane Kane. He is survived by his beloved wife of 42 years, Joyce, Jake their furson, Cathy, his late brother Bruce’s wife, and their son Jonathan, and cousins Gwen and Margaret Kane. David was a favorite of Joyce’s siblings and their families. He was a graduate of Geneva College and University of Pittsburgh MBA program, where he met Joyce and made several lifelong friends.

David was an avid reader and military history buff, with a special affinity for Gettysburg. He hated to be late almost as much as he hated texting. He loved woodworking, model railroads, and aircraft of all sorts. He had an impressive array of tape measures and flashlights. When he built something, you knew that it would be larger and more impressive than planned and that it would last. He valued all things Scottish, especially golf, bagpipes and single malt. He was an early adopter of the craft beer movement and let everyone know that. He loved to tell long rambling stories and was not shy about expressing his opinions, whether in words or on his clothing.
David was a member of the Pittsburgh North Regional Chamber and enjoyed networking and golf outings.
A Celebration of Life is being planned in October. In Lieu of Flowers, donations may be made to Golden Retrievers in Need, P.O. Box 24365 Cleveland, OH 44124, grin@grinrescue.org.

My deepest sympathies,Joyce, on the death of David . When I first met him, I vividly remember his contagious smile and he was wearing bright red plaid. I knew then he wasn't afraid to be himself. I admired his quick wit which actually matches yours. How I wish I could have seen you two play Trivial Pursuit.
Michelle welcomed the conversations David and she had about expensive beers.I know she enjoyed every minute with your precious Shelby.
May God hold you in comfort and give you strength during this difficult time.

Cousins by blood, friends by choice - I will miss you, David. Joyce, you are in my thoughts and prayers - sending love and hugs from NJ.

I believe that David had an indomitable spirit. Whatever challenge was presented to him-he faced it with courage and grace. How many times when faced with difficulties did I witness him smile and, on many occasions, tell a joke. His warmth, optimism and humor have left an indelible mark on this earth and particularly all who were blessed to know him. To David I say "Rest in Peace" and to my dear friend Joyce "You and David were a source of inspiration in your strength as a couple. I know that strength will be with you always". Renny

David was a gentleman and very supportive of his loving wife. And all the dogs, behaved and not that were cared for by this loving couple. A sad loss but a great model for others that follow. Joyce, I will lift you up in my heart.

I will always remember our conversations in our front yard and across our mutual fence. I can recall how happy you were when you got the news that your chemotherapy treatment had stopped and you wouldn't have to endure the sickness that came along with those days. I can also remember ever Golden Retrievers that you had and how sad you were when you had to put each one of them down. I think about how we would compare and contrast each of our illnesses in the summer, and help each other snowblow our driveways in the winter. So many memories over the years that we have lived next to one another.

I find myself looking for your presence out back sipping something to drink or reading on your deck. I miss you already David, but I know you are no longer in pain and are watching over Joyce with love in your heart. Now it's our turn to take care of her...so you can rest in the arms of the Angels. Be at peace my friend...until we meet again.
