David Allen Dandignac

David was born in Delhi, New York on October 23, 1959.

David is survived by his wife, Lourdes Dandignac; two sons, Bradley and Mitchell Dandignac; two granddaughters, Mila Beaver and Rayne Dandignac; three stepchildren, Raquel, Diana, and Nicolas Allinger; mother and father, Phyllis and Ralph Dandignac; sister, Sandra Mokay.

David enjoyed riding motorcycles and walking on the beach with his wife. During the fall seasons, David would spend his days hunting with his son Brad and friends. When his sons were playing sports in school, he was their biggest supporter. He would spend his evenings playing catch or shooting hoops with them until sunset. David found solitude through gardening, playing golf, and watching the New York Yankees.

David was a loving husband and a proud father and grandfather. He was a dedicated and tireless worker for his family. David lived by his principles and carried himself with integrity always. He taught his family the value of loyalty, responsibility, and hard work, consistently sacrificing for others and asking for little in return. Even in his final days, David’s thoughts and actions put his family first.

He was always there for his children. He was there for the big moments; the graduations, holidays, and birthdays. He was there for the small moments; the lawn that needed to be mowed, the oil that needed to be changed, or the children who wanted a treat on his way home from work. David was always there. His sacrifices will be felt long after his passing. May he rest in peace.

The family will receive friends from 1-2 p.m., Saturday, September 24, 2022 at the Monahan Funeral Home, 125 Carlisle St., Gettysburg, PA.

Online condolences may be made at the funeral home’s website.
