David McGrath Jr., 53, of Coldwater passed away Thursday, April 9, 2020 at Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo.
A Celebration of Life for Dave will be held at a later date.
He was born December 14, 1966 in Cambridge, MA to David and Anita (Craig) McGrath. David had attended the University of Massachusetts Lowell receiving his Bachelor’s degree in engineering and on November 6, 1999 he married Tina Eaton and she survives. He was a marketing manager for Sekisui Voltek in Coldwater and had also spent time in sales as well as the foam industry throughout his career. Dave was a member of the Sons of the American Legion and enjoyed the outdoors, Boston sports teams, but most of all, he loved his family. He was always there to lend a helping hand and had a talent for being able to build anything, making projects around the house another joy of his. David was the protector of his family and will always be missed for the loving and considerate husband, father, grandfather, son, and brother that he was.
In addition to his wife Tina, he is survived by his mother Anita Costa of MA, his two children Tyler (Sheila) Streets of Saginaw, Quintin Yearling of Coldwater; his sisters Anita McPherson, Diane Stewart, and Maureen McPherson all of MA; his four grandchildren Leyton, Nora, Presley, Jude; his nieces and nephews that he loved dearly; his father-in-law Ernest Eaton of Coldwater; his sister-in-law Autumn (Jim) Billman of Coldwater, and his brother-in-law Scott Eaton of Coldwater.

I grew up with David just outside Boston in Somerville, MA. A great guy and friend who was devoted to his parents and his sisters and his family. He loved playing football in Pop-Warner and the Somerville Seahawks as a tough and fast running back. He played all sports with a big group of us throughout the summers growing up. He was always there if you needed help building something. When we were in our mid teens we gave Dave a really hard time when he started wearing a pair of bright-yellow , nylon-plastic feel, sweatpants that made him light up like a light-bulb. We thought there must have been batteries inside to make them so bright. During high school we had a great time in 1981 when we went to see the band Journey play at the old Boston Garden. We had hung out at his sisters place for while and then walked over to the concert. It was a great concert and our first concert together.
Me, another of Dave's friends Huggie and Muff met up a few times in our 20's up in Nashua and we always had a fun time hanging out.
We missed him when he left his home in NH for Michigan but knew he found a new home and place where he could grow and raise a family. We knew he would be a great husband and father when we heard he had gotten married out there.
His mother and sisters Anita, Diane, and Maureen and I can't forget his brother-in law Charley who was a quite a hoot when they lived on Stone Ave, same street as me for a while. My father was a very good of Dave's father as members of the St. Joseph's church Men's Club. Dave was always so strong and healthy and vibrant and had a great laugh that I'm sure his family and friends will miss. His obituary description is perfect.

Sorry to hear of his passing.

He was a great man and will never be forgotten. I remember Dave always calling him "Boston".
