David Keith Gaum

September 6, 1962 — January 5, 2024


David Keith Gaum, born on September 6, 1962, left this world unexpectedly on January 5, 2024. He is survived by his son, Christopher Cole, and grandchildren Jackson, Bradley, and Carina. David is also remembered by his siblings Sharon, Michelle, and Sue (Ron), as well as numerous lifelong friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Norma (Nee Arnold) Gaum.

David's passion for racing cars and his fascination with astronomy enriched his life. An avid collector, he found joy in the pursuit of his interests and shared that joy with those close to him.

David was an active member of various dart and bowling leagues, where he built lasting friendships. His dedication extended beyond his personal interests, as he was a committed employee of Tazmanian Freights, leaving a mark of hard work and dedication.

In celebrating David's life, let us remember the warmth he brought to those around him, the camaraderie he fostered through shared hobbies, and the love he shared with those closest to him. May he rest in peace.
