David H. Sanger

May 23, 1960 – January 31, 2020

David H. Sanger was born on May 23, 1960 in Burlington, VT. The son of H. Leland and Esther R.
Sanger, he grew up on the South Shore of Boston. After graduating from Braintree High School, David
joined the U.S. Army where he served as a 12B10 Combat Engineer Airborne in the 82nd Airborne
Division, Fort Bragg, N.C.
David was a Business Administration Major at Quincy College where he attended evening courses while
working full time. He held numerous positions in business, primarily managerial and supervisory roles.
Some of these were Concierge for One Source/International Service Systems (35 businesses) and Site
Supervisor for Wackenhut Associates accounts that included AT&T and Proctor & Gamble. In later years,
David worked in the human services field, most recently for CAB.
David had many interests. He enjoyed gardening, fishing, bicycling, collecting sea glass, playing chess
and scrabble, doing crossword puzzles, reading, spending time with friends and family, walking
Newfoundland dogs on the beach and watching old television shows and movies. He loved visiting family
in Plum Island, MA, Chatham, IL and the White Mountains of New Hampshire where he wishes his ashes
to be scattered.
David’s faith was important to him. He was baptized in the Braintree Baptist Church and enjoyed
attending Campton Baptist Church and Byfield Parish Church with family.
He is survived by his daughters Elizabeth and Jessica, grandson Zachary, sisters Donita (David) Rardin,
Heather (Len) Rideout, nephew Nicholas Rideout, niece Erica Rideout, cousins Glenn Kolat, Brian Kolat,
Hope Shiers, Faith Allen and Charity Logan and their families, and his extended family of close friends.
We remember David for his kind, generous spirit, warmth and humor, his loyalty and his bravery.
The Memorial service for David H. Sanger will be held Friday, February 28, 2020 at 11:00 am at the
Byfield Parish Church, 132 Jackman Street, Georgetown, MA 01833.


Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

    All my love to the family in this sad time. Myself and Faith and Hope got to have a great visit with David in Plum Island a number of years back, thanks to Donita and David. Us girls will always remember our wonderful walk along the beach talking and getting to know David and collecting sea glass…..and shells. Hugs and love.
