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, firstname.lastname@example.org.
