Ricardo Chy David, 67, passed away on August 27 at his Bloomfield home lovingly surrounded by his family.
Born in Ilagan, Philippines to Crescencia and Jesus David, Ricardo was the oldest of five siblings. As a true testament to his love and character, he worked to put all three of his younger brothers through school upon the death of their father, setting aside his studies of accounting and putting others before himself.
He was the devoted husband to his lifelong sweetheart and wife of 31 years, Cielo Odette. Along with her, he is survived by sons, Richard and Roberto, daughter, Richielle, daughter-in-law, Monica, favorite grandson, Joseph, and his brothers Mario, Alfonso, & Norberto.
Lechon, Coca-Cola, and Christmas lights will always bring fond memories of Ricardo. But most of all, he will be remembered for his selflessness, joy, and the deep love with which he lived.
