David worked in the produce industry in California nearly 20 years before moving up to Spokane, WA, where he married his wife MaryBeth and became a delivery driver. He would say, with pride, that he drove millions of miles during his time as a driver and likely could tell you the exact amount of miles he actually drove. David loved to drive to explore new places and enjoyed watching the seasonal changes while on the road. He enjoyed sharing this love with family, friends and anyone who would listen.
David had a large heart both physically and spiritually and succumbed to complications from a heart transplant. His desire was to share Jesus and His love with everyone including the poor, destitute and lonely. David was a man of passion, humor, wit & kindness. He wasnt a saint, but beloved to many.
David Serry is survived by a host of friends and family. His wife MaryBeth at home, daughter Amy (John) Botica and granddaughters Eliana & Abrielle (Escondido, CA), stepchildren Jessica (Nate) Abbott (Spokane Valley), David (Seattle) and Shawn Knapp (Spokane), brother Alan Serry (Palomar Mt., CA) and sister Peggy Serry (Alamosa, CO).
A Celebration of Life for David will be held at River City Church 708 W. Nora Spokane, WA on Sept 16, 2017 at 1:00 PM.
