David Kendig Gable peacefully passed into the loving hands of Our Father on January 28, 2021. He is survived by his wife of 16 years, Molly (Rucinski); sister Ruth (Gable) Ickowitz, brother-in-law Allan, niece Chana (Ickowitz) Solomon (Aaron) , nephew Noah Ickowitz (Rhea Wagle), great nephew and many loving extended friends & family notably Bruce Fisher. He is predeceased by his mother, Clara (Medici) and father Norman Gable.

David was born in New York City and grew up in North Hills, PA. Graduated Abington High School (Class of 1974) He attended Pierce Junior College and Wharton Business School. He lived in Blue Bell, PA.

He was an early entrepreneur and company owner of Micro Design, a computer software company he successfully ran for over 20 years. He enjoyed going to Valley Forge Park and listening to Sinatra.

Throughout this time he would always be a giving soul with time spent with friends and family either eating sewer pipes or black spaghetti or enjoying a Saturday coffee with his parents. Visiting his sister in California and caring for his niece & nephew were highlights he cherished. 

While living in Blue Bell, PA, He met his wife in 1996. The couple moved to Poway, CA in 1998 fulfilling his life-long dream of living in California not just visiting. Molly & David were married September 3, 2004 at San Diego’s Wild Animal Park amongst a small group of family and friends. Notable memory was always the passionfruit cake that the couple got every year after to celebrate their anniversary.

David was active in our church community with being a church greeter, running a community food bank with his wife and growing closer to God in bible study groups.  He was extremely satisfied with our church community and it resulted in many long-term friendships.

He enjoyed family gatherings (eating), espresso, race cars, sunsets, the Wild Animal Park and visiting Catalina.

Most recently his life was inundated with medical issues. Suffering from a pituitary tumor and hydrocephalus. He was always strong. Always had a smile and a joke for hospital staff & family.

He was young at heart and always asked how he could help. He always remembered special events. This gentleman of gentleman always put everyone else first throughout his life. He will be greatly missed.  

He has now found everlasting peace with Our Lord.

"But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last.  And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God! I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!"   

Job 19:25-27

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
– 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
