November 4, 1948 - September 23, 2020

David Goodwyn Elmore let go of our hands to enter heaven on September 23, 2020. He was 71 years of age. David was the son of the late Robert L and Dorothy Woodbury Elmore. He was born on November 4, 1948, in Salem, Massachusetts and grew up in New Hampshire. Attending Exeter High, he was one of the Blue Hawks, where his bat and glove were major factors in the team’s many victories. He was also selected All State in football. Besides being a standout athlete, he was involved in Student Council and Ski Club.

David attended a year of prep school at Taft, where at 5’6”, he was captain of the basketball team. He then went on to UNH and continued his education by receiving a MBA from Babson College.

After working many years as a sports sales rep, David started his own company, Elmore Sports Sales in Woodbury, CT. He then retired to Florida to play golf, pickleball and enjoy the beaches.

He loved sports and dancing, coaching and holiday get togethers. He loved exploring national parks, camping trips and Broadway plays. David skied Teluride, looked over the Grand Canyon and snorkeled in the Caribbean, but most of all David loved his family. Our yearly times at Cave Hill with the kids and grandchildren are priceless. He had a beautiful heart and soul. He was ‘Hon”, “Dad”, “Pop-Pop”. He was the “best”.

David was a special gift for his siblings Bob, Don and Nancy; bringing his infectious smile, good nature and wonderful memories from their times together.

    I met Dave in 1975 as a fellow employee of Brine Sports in Needham MA. In 1976, Dave and I, along with Don Sefton, became apartment roommates. Those three years were lots of fun and Dave was a big reason they were so. Although we all went our separate ways, I will miss him, knowing he is no longer among us. Godspeed Dave as you go to your rest. My thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family.
