1966-2014 DURHAM, N.C. - David Michael Gallagher, 48, passed away peacefully Wednesday, April 16, 2014, surrounded by his wife, family and beloved pets. David was born in Memphis, Tenn., in 1966, to Ruth A. Gallagher and the late Robert A. Gallagher. David grew up in Winslow, Maine, and graduated from Winslow High School in 1984 and the University of Maine in 1989 with a bachelor of science in chemical engineering. He worked his entire career in the pulp and paper industry, spending the last 17 years working for ERCO Worldwide. David truly loved his work, the people he worked with, the challenges it provided and the places to which he traveled throughout the world. He is survived by his wife and best friend of 20 years, Cassandra Gallagher, formerly of New South Wales, Australia. David and Cassandra met in Kennewick, Wash., in 1994, and relocated to North Carolina in 1998. They enjoyed 20 great years of love and laughter. David loved life and didn't want to lose the ability to live it. He accomplished many things in his 48 years. No place embodied his spirit and life more than his love of the water. He spent many hours boating in the San Juan Islands off Washington State, the Gulf Islands of Canada and the waters of the Carolinas. He was passionate about his love for music and playing his guitar; golfing; cooking for friends; riding snowmobiles; water and heli-skiing; sky diving and scuba diving; racing motorcycles; and playing, coaching and refereeing hockey. David's legacy is defined by his determination, amazing strength, resilience and unconditional love for life, friends and family. His wit, generosity and loyalty will be missed by all. He taught us all to live every moment, explore around every corner, love life and don't be afraid to tell your family and friends, "I love you." David's family would like to thank the staff of Regional Cancer Center, Durham, for their compassion, insight, knowledge, sensitivity and outstanding care over the past few years.
