George David Brundage Sr., 93, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at Spotsylvania Regional Hospital surrounded by his family.
Dave was the husband of Mary Ann Caskey Brundage. They shared 24 years of marriage.
Born at home on Staten Island, NY, he was the son of Harold M. and Veronica R. Brundage. Dave served in the Army during WWII and spent his tour of duty in Germany. He was very proud of his service to his country. Dave graduated from Wagner College on Staten Island in 1950. He was an elementary school teacher and later a principal at Lakeside School, in the Merrick, NY school district. Dave retired in 1980.
Dave was married in 1948 to Elizabeth Phelps and shared 41 years of marriage. Dave and Betty shared a home in Wantagh, NY for 29 years, where they raised their children. Soon after retirement, they moved to Pocono Farms, PA and remained there until Betty’s death in 1989. Dave moved to Lakeland, FL, where he met his current wife, Mary Ann Caskey. After some serious health issues, he moved to VA, where he spent his last 2 years with his daughter, Cathy, and her husband.
Dave attended St. Mary of the Annunciation Catholic Church in Ladysmith, VA. He enjoyed golf, woodworking, crossword puzzles and travelling. Dave will be remembered for his love of his family and his quick sense of humor. He had a wonderful way with children, and his great grandchildren loved spending time with him. He will be missed by his dogs, Ginger and Hazel.
Survivors include his wife, Mary Ann; his children, G. David (Penny), Jeffrey (Jeanne), Catherine McFadden (James), and Barbara Garrett (William); his grandchildren, Christopher, Donald, Jessica and Karen Brundage, Matthew, Kevin, Megan and Katie McFadden, William Garrett, Emily Grant, Matthew and Kevin Caskey and Sarah Bacon; and 23 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Veronica; his first wife, Elizabeth; sister Virginia; and brothers Harold and Timothy Caskey.
There will be a mass at a future date when his remains are interred with his first wife, Elizabeth, at St. Catherine’s Cemetery at Moscow, Pennsylvania.
