Obituary

David Lynn Masur passed away on Monday, July 26, 2021, after a courageous three and a half year battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Dave was born April 19, 1953 in Denver, Colorado. He is preceded in death by his father Herman Masur and step-mother Eletha Masur. He is survived by his wife of 45 years Pamela, children Jordan (Alison) Masur and Alexis (Lance) Simmons, three grandchildren Caleb Simmons, Chloe Simmons and Alden Masur, brother James (Linda) Masur and sister Phyllis (John) Cornish. He was well loved by his nephews Andrew Masur and Matthew Cornish and nieces Kristen Barden and Kelly Cornish as well as his many cousins. Dave always made time for family.
Dave lived life to the fullest and always had a positive attitude. He had enough energy for two people and never sat still; always go, go, go. Family meant the world to him. Spending time with family and friends was a must. Dave and Pam lived most of their years together in Michigan and raised their family there. Upon Pam retiring, they relocated to The Villages, Florida to enjoy the retirement years. Life for Dave was also an adventure from camping in the Mountains of Colorado with family, traveling the US on his Harley and with Pam on hers or traveling to Europe. He also loved his grandchildren deeply. They were the light in his life and brought him much joy. He enjoyed trying to conquer the game of golf and loved playing softball with the Sanibel neighborhood team. He touched many people’s lives and will be greatly missed.
A funeral mass will be held on August 14, 2021 at 12:00 noon at St. Vincent de Paul, 5323 CR 462, Wildwood, FL 34785. A celebration of Life will be held at the SeaBreeze Recreation Center, 2384 Buena Vista Blvd., The Villages, FL 32162 at 1:30 to 3:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to either Moffit Cancer Center, Tampa, Florida (give.moffitt.org) or Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (secure.pancan.org)

    I remembering visiting Dave & Pam just after he was diagnosed, I was attending a conference in FL and drove to The Villages. Dave was a friend and a mentor and never lost his dry sense of humor! He was the "calm" in the storm of many business meetings and always took his black & white notebook with him.  He will be missed so many many, sending prayers & healing to the entire family.

    My prayers are with you Pam, Jordan, and Alexis. I worked with Dave from 1985 until 1997 at Foster Medical, Abbey, and then Apria. Dave was a great boss, mentor, and friend all of those years. He was a key person that helped establish my career that started as a driver at Foster (Pam, Drew hired me) to Dave giving me a shot at managing a branch in Flint with Abbey. We also started a repair facility that grew to span several states, and then a CRT business (custom wheelchairs) that lead me to U of M where I know run the CRT program. Thank you Dave for all of the friendship and mentoring that helped me be who I am today. We had so we good times working, playing softball, and golfing, amongst other fun…. You will be missed brother but we will see you soon when we gather with the Lord.

    I had the great pleasure of having Dave as a friend, and also as a boss for a while. He was the best, the perfect mix of mentor, friend, and always kept things fun with his great sense of humor. A wonderful human- can still see his smiling eyes as plain as day.

    Dave was such a great person to be around. All his teammates on the Sanibel softball team have great memories of Dave and his enthusiastic attitude. We will never forget him and his favorite saying of “we are still in it”. We will never forget him running to the next base even though he had the stop sign. We just will never forget the fun and joy we had with him. It was a great honor for me to have him as a teammate and friend. We all miss him greatly. Barb and I send Pam all of our love and support.

    I had the honor of knowing Dave from our Sanibel softball team, both of us played next to each other in the outfield…As others said, he was so very positive in regards to winning on the field and off the field with his battle..I, myself, was battling melanoma at the time and he would always ask how I was doing..His strength and positive attitude helped me overcome my own health issues..I truly believe there is a reason people come into your life. He will always be remembered and I’m grateful that our paths did cross, he was a great man…

    So very sorry to hear of Dave's passing. I had the pleasure of playing softball with Dave on the Sanibel neighborhood softball team. Dave was always in great spirits and his favorite saying in softball was, "We're Still In It", whether we were down by 5 or up by 10. His positive attitude was infectious and appreciated by all. Our team will miss him very much. Love and prayers to Pam and family from Jack and Dianne Zalewski

    I’ll always remember Dave driving by the bus stop and yelling out the window, “Get A’s!”

    I’m so sorry for this tremendous loss. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
