Dave was born to the late Salvatore and Caroline Porfilio in New Castle, Pennsylvania on October 7, 1929 and was one of two children.

We deeply miss David. His knowledge of the Bible was amazing and we knew he could answer any question we had, right off the top of his head. He was a warm, welcoming person who helped make our Fellowship Class shine and was a wonderful friend.

David loved to dance and we can see him with King David dancing before the throne of The Lord God in heaven with big smiles and deep joy.

May God bless and comfort and bring peace to David's friends and family and bring them great peace. We will see David again in heaven.
God bless you
