David Dandrea, 71 of Vineland, passed away on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, after a brief and courageous battle with cancer.
David started his career as an apprentice plumber with Tirell Plumbing while concurrently attending Temple University to expand his knowledge of the plumbing and HVAC fields. He was employed by Falasca Mechanical, Inc. for 35 years, where he worked as a project manager. His knowledge of the plumbing and HVAC trades spanned decades. David was a perfectionist and took pride in whatever challenges he undertook.
David enjoyed summers at the shore with his family and friends; dining out; and working on his '57 Thunderbird. He was an adrenaline enthusiast, never turning down a rollercoaster ride with his son, and he had even been sky diving. David was also experienced in martial arts. His interests and hobbies were eclectic.
A kind, generous, family-oriented man, he will be greatly missed. David is survived by his wife, Lillian (nee Eilenberg); his son, Bryan; his stepson, Paul Crescenzo (Bernie); his brother, Daniel (Irene); his sister-in-law, Jacki Eilenberg; his brother-in-law, David Eilenberg (Laura); and his three grandchildren. He was predeceased by his parents, Daniel and Mary (Peroni) Dandrea; and his favorite dog, Freebie.
