David P. Brauer of Stoughton passed away on April 30, 2024, at his home.

Born in Boston in 1960 as the eldest child of the late David P. Brauer and the late Margaret G. Brauer, he was 63 years old. He spent the first 12 years of his life in Boston before his family moved to Dover. He attended Dover-Sherborn schools, where he excelled in the classroom and on the playing fields, ultimately earning the Scholar-Athlete Award at his graduation. He attended the College of the Holy Cross as an undergraduate and then Boston College Law School, where he earned his Juris Doctorate.

A lifelong Massachusetts resident, David settled in the Boston area and joined his father in a joint law practice that they established in Medfield, where they worked together until his father’s passing in 2006. In 2010, seeking new professional challenges, he began Puroclean Emergency Restoration Services and owned and operated the business until his passing.

David took great pleasure in listening to music, watching films, and staying physically active. For a number of years, he was an enthusiastic cyclist and a proud participant in the Pan-Mass Challenge benefitting the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. An avid reader, he especially enjoyed mysteries and spy stories. He loved spending time in the family home in Harwichport, reading a novel, enjoying a glass of wine, and watching the ocean while listening to music.

David is survived by his siblings, Robert J. Brauer and his wife Mary of Sudbury, Paul G. Brauer of Boston, Susan E. Cavanaugh of Newburyport, Christopher M. Brauer of West Roxbury, Stephen M. Brauer and his wife Joan Saab of Richmond, VA, Richard P. Brauer of Boston, and Kerin E. Nunn and her husband Dennis of Dover. He was a devoted uncle to Carrie Novotny, Kristen Langan, Paul Brauer, Jr., Scott Brauer, Matthew Brauer, Phineas Brauer, Wilson Brauer, Samantha Cavanaugh, and Riley and Regan Nunn.
