David Sabedra
February 02, 1954 -- December 08, 2020

David Sabedra, 66, passed away on December 8, 2020, in McKinney, Texas. He was born in Dallas, Texas at the old Parkland Hospital on February 12, 1954, to Albert Sabedra, who preceded him in death, and Nicolasa Hernandez Flores, who presently resides in Mabton, Washington. He was known as Dave, Big Dave and Big D by his family and friends. He attended City Park Elementary in Dallas, Texas, Sunset High School in the North Oak Cliff area in Dallas, Texas and graduated from Mabton High School in Mabton, Washington.

He began a career as a Radiator Specialist and joined the family business known as North Texas Radiator located in McKinney, Texas, that was owned by his parents Raul, who preceded him in death and Nicolasa Flores. David and his mother operated the business until his health caused him to close the business in January 2018. He was often referred to as the “Radiator Man” by his customers, and as recently by a paramedic that transported him to his final stay at McKinney Medical hospital.

David enjoyed watching all sports, his favorites were the Cowboys and New York Yankees. He had a soft spot in his heart for basketball that he played and excelled in during high school. He mastered the challenge of the game of darts and missed the camaraderie when he had to cease playing due to his health, but always looked forward to playing again once he became able to do so.

He loved his Tejano music, his favorite song being “Red Neck Meskin Boys” by Little Joe and Country and Western song “Troubadour”, by George Strait, as well as the Oldies but Goodies songs.

David is loved and missed by his of wife of 32 years, Donna Sabedra, daughter Lizzie and sons Mark and Russell; Mother Nicolasa Flores; Sister Gloria, Brother Lorenzo and Larry, who preceded him in death; His much loved grandchildren Destinee and Christopher; his beloved great-grandchildren Aidyn, Athena, Zelda, Dahlia, Jeta and Jayden; and an array of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, along with many friends too numerous to mention by name. A special thank you to the doctors, medical staff and personnel at Medical City McKinney, DaVita, UT Southwestern and Belmont at Twin Creeks, who tended to David throughout his illnesses.

Due to the pandemic restrictions, the memorial service is being postponed to an unknown future date.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial gift can be made in David’s name to the Honor Warriors. org and/or St. Jude.org.
