David was born Nov. 30, 1953, in Chippewa Falls, Wis. to the late Oral & Ella Malosh. He was proud to be baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on July 12, 1968. From July 1973 to June 1975 he volunteered at the World Headquarters of Jehovah’s Witnesses located at the time in Brooklyn N.Y. He continued in that work at the new printery in Wallkill, N.Y. David worked in the pre-press department becoming a skilled hot metal plate maker.
It was in Brooklyn, N.Y. where David met Eileen Hickok of Troy, the true love of his life. The two were married on June 5, 1976. Together they worked as volunteers at Wallkill for close to 20 years, where David was involved in pre-press, factory projects, purchasing and in the construction office. David then started a new career in real estate/appraisals. In the last few years David was able to use this vast experience to assist the LDC, which cares for the needs of places of worship for Jehovah’s Witnesses. Challenging, but fun to him, this was a privilege that he genuinely cherished.
David loved coffee on the deck in the morning sun, fishing, canasta, gardening.
David will be most greatly missed by his loving wife, Eileen, of nearly 43 years. David is also survived by his brother, Russ (Cherrill) Anderson, his sisters MaryLou Roessel, LaVonne Diamond, Avis Slattery, Donna (Mike) Garcia, Joann Lowery, his mother-in-law Merriel Hickok, brothers-in-law Randy (Maureen)Hickok, Mark Hamby , Brent (Carol) Hickok, Kevin (Joanna) Hickok, Greg (Christina) Hickok and sisters-in-law Shayla (Wayne) Chace, Denise(Jay) Andrus, Valerie Hickok and several very special nieces & nephews. David will also be greatly missed by his spiritual brothers and sisters in the local congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, along with those whom he mentored and cared for as if they were his very own sons and daughters.
