Dave Burrough
May 10, 1942 - August 4, 2014

Dave Burrough, past president of the FC Royals has passed.  There will be a Memorial Service for him on Friday, August 21, 2015 at 1:00 PMat the Tacoma Yacht Club.

David Paul Burrough Known to his family and friends as "Day Island Dave," "Broadway Dave," "Big Dave," "Big D," "Dude," and "Gampa," left us on August 4, 2015. Born on May 10, 1942 to Mr. and Mrs. Ed Burrough, Jr. in Tacoma, Washington, Dave spent the majority of his life in his hometown, graduating from Wilson High School (class of 1960), the University of Washington (BS of Aeronautics and Astronautics), and Seattle University (MBA). Dave was known for his patience, work ethic, integrity, and kindness, which permeated all he did. His career was spent at Rocketdyne, Boeing, and EDS (Ross Perot), ultimately retiring from the Weyerhaeuser Company after 21 years. An active member of the community, Dave was a proud member of the YMCA as one of the Row 2 Ballers, and served as a member of the following Masonic orders: the Tyler Masonic Lodge, the Scottish Rite, the Afifi Temple and the Royal Order of the Jesters. Dave was also instrumental in the development of the FC Royals girls' soccer club and complex, now known as Washington Premier FC. Dave deeply loved his family and friends, the beach, cribbage, and sports. He was a devoted "12" and was quick to utter "Go Dawgs" to any Coug he crossed. Dave and Denise, his loving wife of thirty-seven years, spent most of their lives on Day Island in University Place, Washington. Dave always felt fortunate to be able to spend time with family, especially his grandchildren, Livi and Jack-his princess and his buddy-with whom he had a special bond. David is survived by his wife, Denise Burrough (Tacoma, WA); brother, Edward Burrough IV (Fox Island, WA); his children, Krista Gonsales (Kona, HI), Dave Burrough Jr. (Kona, HI), and Jennifer Zamira (Tacoma, WA); his grandchildren, Scott, Kory, Kyle, Rhiannon, Dylinn, Leina'ala, Olivia and Jackson; and his great-grandchildren, Audrey and Brooke. The family would like to offer special thanks to Tacoma General Hospital Oncology Unit, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and the University of Washington Medical Center, who cared for Dave and his loved ones with a great deal of compassion during an especially difficult time. A memorial service will be held at 1pm on Friday, August 21, 2015, at the Tacoma Yacht Club, 5401 N Waterfront Dr, Tacoma, WA. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Dave's most cherished organizations: the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties, the Shriners Hospitals for Children , and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/tribnet/obituary.aspx?pid=175515189#sthash.lZ0r4re2.dpuf
