He was a resident of Plano, Texas, where he did a great job raising his daughter, Wendy, as a single parent. David lived an active life which included traveling to many places all over the world. He was an avid indoor gardener and had ivy tastefully growing throughout his home. He was deeply devoted to his wife Sumi.
David was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Josephine Ostrander, brothers Bobbie Lee and David Joe, and a sister, Helen Cavin. He lost his precious daughter, Wendy, in December prior to his passing. He is survived by his wife Sumi Ostrander of the home, son-in-law Joe Kuhnart, granddaughter Shelby, grandson David, and great grandson, Abe. He is also survived by step daughters Sindy, Mindy, and Pinky, step granddaughter Jessica, and step grandson Micheal. He is also survived by his sister, Diana Russell (sp.

If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever
