September 11, 1948 - June 17, 2017
PFC David Menendez Sunrise: September 11, 1948 - Santurce, Puerto Rico Sunset: June 17, 2017 - Bay Pines, Florida David is preceded with the Lord by his parents Julia (Gonzalez) Menendez and Francisco Menendez as well as his beloved daughter Veronica Menendez and many other family and friends. He leaves his legacy here on Earth with his adoring daughter Melissa Menendez and his wife Melanie. David is survived by an abundant amount of loving family. He left the physical world after a six month battle with Stage lll Liver Cancer that metastasized to the bone. PCF Menendez loved his country and proudly served in the United States Army as an MP, Cco 793 BN Europe, from 3/10/69 to 3/3/71 during the Vietnam Era and received Honorable Discharge upon completion. He was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, Expert Badge M-14 and Markman for M-16. David, most often reffered to by loved ones as "Davie" was a very wise, honest, loving (but firm) family man who had an even balance between said family and his personal solitude. Davie loved music of all genres and played the Conga Drums like nobody's business. If you were lucky enough to hear him sing, you could feel his passion for music radiate from each note. He was the life of the Party and passed on a "roll with the punches" mindset. A piece of advice he leaves behind is "There is much more to be seen and felt. Understand your spirituality and have an appreciative heart". The family would like to Thank Hospice at Bay Pines for caring for his every need during his last month of life and Grasso Funeral Home for all his needs there after. His niece Samantha would like to share a poem that they most recently read together. Remember Me Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, But remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles, I've only gone to rest a little while. Although my leaving causes pain and grief, My going has eased my hurt, and given me relief. So dry your eyes and remember me, Not as I am now, but as I used to be. Because, I will remember you all as I look on with a smile. Understand in your hearts, I've only gone to rest a little while. As long as I have the love from each of you, I can live my life in your hearts forever, it's true!
