Following his retirement, he was employed by the State of Pennsylvania at Sharon Community Corrections.

David enjoyed sports, and was formerly a Little League coach and a soccer coach. He helped to promote the newly formed soccer leagues at both the Greenville Rec Center and St. Michael School. He enjoyed caring for his dogs, and following his greatest passion, Penn State football.

David was very proud of his children and enjoyed his new grandchild very much.

He is survived by his wife of forty-three years, Sheila; his daughter, Megan Caruso, and her husband, David, of Carnegie, PA; his son, Dr. Zachary Zuschlag, and his fiancée, Dr. Amanda Nedervelt, of Ruskin, FL; and his grandson, Lorenzo David Caruso.

David is also survived by his father-in-law, Ed Loreno; his brothers-and-sisters-in-law, Durbin and Kim Loreno, Tim and Linda Bradigan, Pat Willis, Denise Loreno and her partner Steve Shimshock; and many nieces and nephews.

    Sheila, I am so sorry for your loss. Battling cancer takes a special kind of courage, from both the person and the spouse. While I didn’t know Dave personally, your pictures paint a portrait of how wonderful a husband and father he was. My deepest sympathy to you and your family, and may God lift you up during this difficult time. Becky Beaver Johns

    My Condolences to all the Family. I’ve known Dave for many, many yrs. I have spent many hours with him at various events. I will miss his voice, his laughter and his stories. Many others I know will miss him as well. Sorry, I missed the Funeral Services and the Mass. I had heard he passed, and didn’t get the info till it was over. …….. Ps.. Prayers Sent. Best to all.

    Please accept our thoughts, prayers and condolences. We knew Dave for many years and never a moment went by that he didn’t have a smile or a story to share. Our talks at Sheetz in the mornings getting coffee or at one of the local watering holes over a drink. Rest easy Sir.
