Let the memory of David Paul be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, David Paul Begallia who was born on April 16, 1953 and passed away on May 10, 2011. Dave loved comedy movies and comedy in general. He also had a hobby of working on old cars when he was younger. He raced at Seattle International Raceway and loved the outdoors. He would tell story's of how when he was  younger he would stay at his family's cabin in Ocean Shores Washington and live off of razor clams. He would take all of us kids to the mountains to shoot guns and still did with his son David until weeks before he passed. Later in his life he became a avid fan of golf and would go out and play often. Dave was a child at heart from collecting and buying toy cars to playing with remote control cars. Dave's favorite most common thing he collected was pockets knifes, he probably didn't know how many he really had. He is someone who could make friends with anyone, and will never be forgotten.

I was at the old Maple Tree spot the other day fishing with you John & Dad, we didn't catch any fish but the memories were good. Remember the time we were trolling & I caught a snag that pulled my rod out of the boat & into the lake, thought I lost that old pole our father gave me for my birthday, but when you reeled in your rod their was a line caught on your lure & when we pulled it in I got my rod back, RIP Bother & thanks for always being there for me...Huggs"
