CANFIELD – Loving husband, father and friend, David Querin died the morning of Feb. 10, 2018.

David was born in 1941 and raised in Youngstown.

He attended South High School, was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1965, serving in Germany. He graduated from Youngstown State University with a degree in Physics, and was employed by Parker Hannifin (formerly Commercial Intertech) as a Quality Assurance Manager for more than 30 years.

Following retirement in 2001, Dave, a true creative spirit, enjoyed life as an artist and master craftsman and was happiest when working in his shop building beautiful pond yachts or traveling with his wife and family. He sailed his vintage model yachts at regattas and other destinations, including Conservatory Pond in New York City’s Central Park, where his hand-crafted schooners and sharpies were a marvel for visitors and locals alike.

A fine art enthusiast, Mr. Querin also served as a docent at the Butler Institute of American Art, and was an elder and teacher at the Old North Church in Canfield.

He is survived by his adoring family: wife of 53 years, Susan; brother Jim (Clarie); his daughter, Pam (Deane); and sons Jeff and Steve.

A celebration of life service is planned for April 3 at 6:30 p.m. at Old North Church in Canfield.
