Dave continued his talent of carpentry, excavation, and building houses under DC Builders.

Predeceased by his Father, Kenneth Caszza, brother Wayne Casazza, sister Debra LaRosa. 


David’s greatest joy in life was spending time with his closest friends, working with his son and spending time at his shop tinkering on equipment or working on his cars. David will be greatly missed by all who had the honor to know him, his closest friends and family.
