When word spread Saturday night of the sudden death of David Dangerfield, Sr., the sense of loss was profound and cut deep to many. David was an Elmont and Royal Palm Beach community leader, firefighter, father, grandfather and surrogate parent. David was 51 years old and is survived by his wife Erica and children TJ, David “Deuce,” Jordan, Jared, Davina, Chaanelle, Charrise. The outpouring of grief spilled onto the pages of FACEBOOK where group sites were started where children and adults throughout Elmont posted their reflections about a man that was called “Papa D” to so many.
Scott Cushing, a longtime family friend from Elmont and who led the Memorial Service at Riverside Chapel in Manhattan, said, “this is heartbreaking and tragic. David loved his family and everyone that knows the Dangerfields know what a deep, cutting loss this is. The incredible outpouring of sympathy and prayers for the family has been a g-dsend. David’s boys are like my own children. And, David was so proud of all of them and their achievements. I will never forget that kind, gentle man who was a brother to me.”
