It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of David Bruce Skalniak

Dave was a resident of California, Maryland and passed away at Hospice House in Callaway, Maryland after a courageous fight against cancer. Dave was granted his angel wings on November 10, 2020.

Born in Dundalk, MD. on May 6,1960. Dave graduated from Patapsco High School. He continued his education and served in the United States Navy. He recently retired after working for many years as Station Head at Patuxent Naval Air Station.

David was a devoted son, husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Those he met remember Dave’s infectious smile, kindness and sense of humor. Dave enjoyed fishing and had accomplished wood working skills.

Dave is survived by his father, Walter A. Skalniak Jr., wife Monique Skalniak, son David B Skalniak Jr., grandson Robert B. Skalniak, sisters, Terese Lefebvre and Susan Grieb and brother, Walter J. Skalniak Sr.

He was preceded in death by his mother Lucille Skalniak.

Dave passed at 60 years old. His life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understand the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time, Dave loved deeply and will be surely missed.

David’s wish was to be cremated. A small service will be announced for family and friends.
