Obituary

David Allan Dow, 62, sailed peacefully into his next calling on August 10, 2022. With quiet humor, perseverance and grace, he lived his life to the fullest. He showed unshakeable determination by rebounding time after time from the ravages of his Parkinson's disease while bravely meeting the demands of therapy and treatment since 2011. He held those he loved most deeply in loyal abiding trust and respect, the most notable being Carmelina who gave him hope, love, unwavering care and courage.
The duo loved seeking adventure through their many travel pursuits including sailing themselves across the southern hemisphere on their sailboat for a year and later climbing many high mountains such as Mt. Kilimanjaro and Everest Base Camp.

Our dear husband, son, friend, brother and co-worker was born May 15, 1960. He is survived by the love of his life, his wife, J. Carmelina Rivera. He is also survived by his brothers, Brian, Dale and John and predeceased by his parents, Robert James & Mary Elizabeth of WI and his dear, 4-legged companion, Maya.

Being a tinkerer and inventor at heart, David built computers, renovated their homes and nothing that was broken or malfunctioning escaped his detective-like investigation and solutions.

Funeral service will be held on Thursday, August 18 at 3pm at Hansen Chapel, 8314 N.7th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85020. On Friday, August 19, services will being with the Rosary at 9:00am at St. Paul Roman Catholic Parish, 330 W. Coral Gables Dr., Phoenix, AZ 85023 followed by mass at 9:30 at the same location.
