OBITUARY

David James Guizerix

June 12, 1960May 18, 2019

It is with deepest sadness that the Guizerix family shares the passing of beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, mentor, and friend, David Guizerix, 58, of Palm City, FL. David departed this world peacefully on the morning of May 18, 2019, at AdventHealth Hospital in Orlando, FL, surrounded by his loving family.

David’s life and memory are and will remain one of deep joy and love. His Catholic faith and supreme trust in God defined his life and continue to inspire all who were blessed to have known and loved him.

David was born in New Orleans, LA, on June 12, 1960. He grew up in Picayune, MS, surrounded by the love, laughter, and faith of his family and friends, which he carried with him through the rest of his life. He graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi and later moved to southern Florida, where he met and married the love of his life, Lorraine. Together they relocated to Louisiana, where they welcomed and raised four beautiful children, and David joined his father, A.P., in the family business.

In 2001, Dave and his family found their way back to Florida, relocating to Palm City. For the past 16 years, he has been a dedicated steward of his church, St. Joseph Catholic Church, in Stuart. As an usher it was his hope to inspire the children of the church to usher and assist in all liturgies, a successful endeavor that continues to bring his congregation joy each week. He taught CCD on Sundays with his daughters, RCIA, First Communion and Confirmation classes, and volunteered with countless organizations including Mary’s Shelter.

One of his greatest dreams was to own his own business. In 2012 David opened Rainbow International of the Palm Beaches, and is now fondly known in his community as “Rainbow Dave.” He loved to serve his community through the Palm City and Stuart Chambers of Commerce, the Rotary Club, Habitat for Humanity, Mary’s Shelter, Boy Scouts, and served proudly as the Executive Project Director on Elev8Hope. He loved being outside, especially at the beach or riding his bike, telling a good story or joke, and enjoying a beer during a Saints game.

He is survived by his loving wife of 29 years, Lorraine; his devoted children, Jaquelyn, Nichole, Stefanie, and William; his dedicated parents A.P. Guizerix, Jr., and Patricia; his brother Skipper Guizerix (Christy), and sisters Kathy Faucett (Mark), and Tricia Gipson (Walter); his uncle Robert Guizerix; his nieces, nephews, and cousins; and countless friends. Words do not do justice to the immense loss felt by his family, friends, and entire community. Dave will be remembered and loved forever.

A memorial mass will be held on Friday, May 24, 2019 at St. Joseph Catholic Church at 4:00PM followed by a Celebration of Life at its family center.

In honor of Dave, please consider becoming an organ donor and in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Elev8 Hope, Hope Central Station, 3700 SE Salerno Road, Stuart, FL 34997.

Rainbow Dave personified positive mental attitude. And always looked on the bright side of things. He was a great example for us all. A man of faith, a patriot, a good honest hard working business man, father, husband and friend. I know that for all who new him the fact that we will all miss him is an understatement. Our thoughts and prayers from us and ours to his and theirs.

I knew Dave through the Chamber. He was such a kind and caring individual who gave with both hands and with all his heart without a second thought! He will be missed. I pray the Lord will give his family & friends strength to get through this tragedy, and that God will bless his children, his wife, and his family. My prayers are for them, and I send my deepest sympathy. I'm so sorry for your loss.

God Bless!

Dave was an amazing man. I met him when I first started marketing at some of the Chamber events. He always had a smile on his face and would light up a room with his jokes. He was very welcoming and encouraging. You could tell how much he loved being a part of this community. His smile and positive energy will be dearly missed!

I met Dave several years ago at a Networking event, we crossed paths a variety of times over the years. He was one of the most genuine people I have known, and I am grateful to have been a part of his Networking family. Prayers up for his wife and family as they deal with such a difficult time of loss.

Dave was a wonderful, cheerful, funny and delightfully positive man. I enjoyed knowing him and we often traded jokes, etc. Dave rescued me from floods and various home disasters, but of greater significance was what I learned from him. Dave will always stand out in my mind for one particular moment.

We were in church and mass was ending when a baby began screaming its head off. Dave smiled that infectious grin and then said, “I love that sound. Actually I am pro-crying because it gives me hope. Crying says that there is life and a future. When people tell a young mother to quiet their child, I feel badly and try to tell her to just keep at what she is doing. Yea, I really like crying.”

Dave gave my world a different perspective. He was dedicated to helping all people, but loved working with the kids. He would recruit new altar servers and Sunday catechism held a special meaning for him personally. I think that in many ways, Dave knew God as few of us can ever hope to.

My wonderful friend will be deeply missed although I am equally sure the day will eventually come when he will meet me with that infectious grin and a really bad pun.

I know most of the Guizerix family, and admire and respect them all. Dave was an amazing man, and did many things to improve the city of Picayune, Mississippi while living in Louisiana, and working with his father A.P. here in Pearl River County, Mississippi. We have all lost a dear friend, and I grieve along with that precious family. May our Heavenly Father grant each of you peace, and the true knowledge that Dave is with him in his Heavenly Home.

I knew Dave from a networking group we were both in, as well as having him do some work at our house. While I didn't know him well, he struck me as a great person and, from what he talked about, a great family man. I understand how much his wife and children will miss him, but know from experience that memories will sustain them and keep him alive in their hearts.

All my condolences to his family, and am sorry I will not be able to attend his service. He was just a guy that I enjoyed knowing and chatting with. He will be missed!
