David Richard Gavagan

November 21, 1957 ~ April 6, 2022 (age 64)


David Richard Gavagan, age 64, passed peacefully on April 6, 2022.  He was a member of the International Alliance Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) Local One and worked on "The View" for many years.  Dave was known to friends and co-workers as the "Gentle Giant", and his artistic talent was displayed in his many sketches and paintings.  His book collection was staggering with his main interests being the history of Ireland and New York City.  An avid Yankees fan, having grown up within walking distance of Yankee Stadium, he was a regular at Opening Day and Old Timer's Day for many years.

Dave was a devoted and loving son, brother, uncle and friend.  He was predeceased by his sister Margaret Edwards and is survived by his sisters Gail O'Hara (Jim) and Kathy Watson (Bob) and his brother John (Lorraine) as well as many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand nephews.
