David Matthew Friermood, age 43, of Dublin, passed away December 13, 2021. David graduated from Bishop Watterson High School, Class of 1997 and University of Findlay with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. David had a very kind heart and cared for others, he always wanted everyone to feel good and have a good time. Memorialized forever is the “great big bear hugs” Dave would give to just about anyone, Dave never met a stranger and had an infectious smile and outgoing personality. No one ever had to wonder if Dave was in a room, as he filled every space with belly laughter and larger than life storytelling. Dave loved to dance and break out into spontaneous song, especially if karaoke was involved. Dave had a particular infatuation with Frank Sinatra and his many classic songs. Sinatra has a famous quote: “I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living his life, and who had good friends, a fine family. I don’t think I could ask for anything more than that, actually." All who knew Dave would agree he would want to be reminisced as a embodiment of this quote, as well as many other timeless lyrics of his favorite musician.
