Dave passed away peacefully after a brief illness at the age of 35. Despite significant disabilities, he lived a full and happy life. He particularly enjoyed a wide variety of music, as well as the ocean and swimming pool. Humor, hard work and unconditional love were hallmarks all his life.

Dave is survived by his parents, Catherine and Steven Popell, his sister and brother-in-law, Lauren and Michael Velasco, and his nephew, Kyle Velasco.
