David L. Bachman passed away peacefully to be with the Lord on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2019, at Nanticoke Hospital in Seaford.
David was a native of Delaware and the son of Myra L. and David Bachman. He grew up in Dover, one of four siblings. Throughout his life, David maintained school-age friendships and was a participant of his well-loved “Lunch Bunch.” For many years, David resided in Seaford.
David relished the beauty of nature, especially flowers, and thoroughly enjoyed traveling here and abroad. He greatly loved the water and throughout his lifetime enjoyed boating of any type. David was hard-working in all his endeavors exhibiting a persistent work ethic attitude which he also tried to instill in others. He was a mentor to many and well-known by those dear to him for his insight and advice. But above all, he cared greatly for family, friends, employees, and his community.
David is survived by family members: Donald Wacker, David Wacker (Amy), Richard Wacker and their families; Robert Kopf Sr., Robert Kopf Jr., Paul Kopf (Michele), Tad A. Kopf (Geralyn); and their families; and Terrie Bachman. He is also survived by dear loved ones: Christina and Kit Seningen, Debbye and Russell Horsey, and Cissy Thomas.
In addition to his parents, David was preceded in death by his sisters, Myra Ann Bachman, Betty Wacker, and Nancy Kopf.
An hour of visitation will be held on Friday, Sept. 27, at Cranston Funeral Home, 300 N. Shipley St., Seaford, from 10 to 11 a.m., followed by a celebration of life service at 11.
Thank you to all family and friends for expressions of love and prayers on David’s behalf. Special appreciation is extended to all medical personnel who assisted in providing such tender, compassionate care for him.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in his honor and memory to the Allen Cancer Center, 801 Middleford Rd., Seaford, DE 19973.
