Beloved father of Brenna Gredler and her husband Ben of Quincy, Brendan Hogan and his partner Jennifer MacDonald of Los Angeles, CA., and Kaileigh Hogan of Allston. Former husband of Mary Lou Duff.

David was a truck driver for the Boston Herald for over 30 years. He was a longtime member of the Emerald Society of the Boston Police.
Once you met David, he always made an impression that was not easily forgotten. He volunteered with special needs children in various camps and programs as well as homeless shelters, food pantries, and the Arch Street Shrine. David was an extremely charitable man who loved his family and friends with equal intensity. If you were his friend he made time for you, whatever it was that you needed. He was a legend of a man. In his own humble and charitable way he has touched so many lives and made us smile, laugh, and at times duck. There will never be nor could there be another like him. He was simply that large in life in his own humble way.
