David Wade


David Jeremiah Wade passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family and a few close friends at 5 p.m. on Friday, March 10, 2017. He was 25 years old.

David was known by many and loved by all.  He was a very friendly young man, fully engaging all those that he came into contact with a warm hello, a bright smile and genuine concern for each of them.  He had a wonderful sense of humor and quick wit.  He loved making others laugh and smile. He was very conscientious and diligent with his long list of daily activities, including exercises and stretches. He enjoyed going to the movies and attending game night with a Meet up group in Boise. He loved spending time with family and friends. He was a great poker player and loved his poker friends.

David was born on July 13, 1991 in Manti, Utah.  He attended Manti Elementary School for two years before moving to Boise, Idaho in 1998. In Boise, he attended Cecil D. Andrus, River Valley and Ustick Elementary Schools.

He lived in Vacaville, California attending Foxboro Elementary School for one year. The family returned to Boise in 2002 where David attended Lewis and Clark Middle School. David graduated from the Young Marines in 2004, and graduated from Mountain View High School in 2009. He completed two years of college at CWI.

David spent several summers at MDA camp where he met many wonderful volunteers and made so many new friends.  He made many long-lasting friendships, rubbing shoulders with some of God’s choicest kids, fantastic firefighters and many other great volunteers. These counselors connected with each of the kids and continued to nurture the relationships long after those days of camp.

David played baseball in elementary school along with his brother Daniel. They rode bicycles together, made tree forts and enjoyed a couple years of boy scouts together.

David was also blessed to have taken an Alaskan cruise with his family through the Make-A-Wish organization, and he cherished these memories.

David loved to travel exploring parts of France, Italy, Mexico and many of the United States! David loved to camp, hunt and fish, enjoying our many camping trips exploring every chance we got.  David chased Pokémon’s every chance he could and loved every minute he spent in search of those funny creatures.
