He is preceded in death by his brother, Stephen Chittenden (2007), and his father Abram “Chip” Chittenden (2018). After cremation, David’s ashes will be spread at Mount Lindo, mingling with those of his brother and his father.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you would consider a donation to Denver Rescue Mission, which ministers to the homeless population in Denver, where David had done volunteer work.
