David Chow, 64, of Lake Jackson, TX, passing because of Bile Duct Cancer on November 12, 2019. David was born to Hsueh Lien Chow and Betty C Chow on March 12, 1955 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. David married Eve Chen in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 27, 2013. David worked for 31 years as a Tax Auditor for the government’s Internal Revenue Service.

David was a family man, he loved life, enjoyed food and liked to have fun. In the early 1960s, when David was 9 years old, he came to the United States. Here, he became an American citizen, and it was in the Windy City, Chicago, where he spent most of his childhood and adult life. He loved his job and cared deeply for his co-workers. Not only that, David loved his country; he was a proud American.

David met his wife Eve online in 2002, after his first marriage ended because of misunderstandings and cultural clashes with his first wife. He was looking for a new life companion, and Eve was divorced and ready for a new start. So, they met and started the chapter together.

David was a good father. He cared for his children well into their adult lives, even financially supporting his son Joshua while he was ill. David loved his daughter, Sarah, dearly, and always thought of her as a precious jewel. While his first marriage wasn’t perfect, David did his best to be a good husband; in its dissolution, he took on the responsibility of debt while giving his most valuable assets to his ex-wife.

David was nothing but supportive to Eve. He quietly provided all of necessities, and they loved each other in their own special way. It in the way David took care of his stepson—Jeffrey every weekend when he came home. David was also a good friend to his stepdaughter, Sandi. Since they first met in 2002, they had many wonderful years together, including tying the knot officially in 2013.

Dave was my supervisor and the first person I got to know from the work. He was kind, generous, and caring boss and friend. He was always ready to listen and help whenever I needed an advice. Dave, you were GREAT! We will remember the happy moments and your smiles until we meet again. May the Lord keep your family strong during this difficult time.

Dad was never very good at expressing himself through words, but his actions spoke volumes. Whenever I would get in trouble and get berated for it, dad would always find me afterwards and cheer me up and remind me that he still loved me. Even though I did something wrong, he didn't want me to get hung up over it. He would always try and get me back on the right path again. He always gave me a second chance even though I didn't always deserve it at times. That's what I loved most about dad, he always had my back and gave me unconditional affection. Even in his declining health, he was still worried about and looking out for me. If that's not unconditional fatherly love, then I don't know what is. I was truly blessed to have a father like him. Love you dad, and I miss you.

There are so many memories I can choose from, but my favorite memory of my dad is when he was with his granddaughter. She always had a way to make him smile and laugh. He will go along with whatever she was doing to make her happy. The time spent with you was priceless and will cherish in our hearts forever. I love you daddy and miss you so much.

I worked with David for over 30 years. He was not only a co-worker but also a friend. I valued his friendship. I will miss him. My prayers go out to his families.

David was an amazing supervisor. He always had your back, and set the tone for our office, that was more family, than co-workers. Whoever was in the office for the day, would always go out to lunch together, and we would laugh, and try to solve the problems of the world. David has passed much too soon, and he will be missed, but remembered fondly always. It's so wonderful to see the many photos of him here...especially most recently, where he was so happy.
