Obituary

Obituary for David Gregory Rothbauer

David Gregory Rothbauer was born on August 6th, 1957 in St. Paul, Minnesota to Donna Westland and Robert Rothbauer. He died on November 22nd at the age of 62 at his home in Arvada, CO of a heart attack. David grew up in Westminster and graduated from Westminster High School.

David was the eternal family man with a heart of gold that he shared with all he knew. He welcomed everyone as his family with open arms and enjoyed time spent with friends. David was quite the comedian. He was always seen with a smile on his face and a joke up his sleeve. He put everyone else’s happiness before his own. If ever you needed help, Dave was the man to call night or day, rain or shine.
David worked in the used oil industry for thirty-eight years. Through his work, he gathered an endless amount of customers that he thought more of as friends. He would often talk about the same people he has worked with and been friends with for decades. He drove a truck all over the Denver Metro area and collected used oil. He was the human Google Maps. He knew by memory every thoroughfare and alley in Denver.

David is preceded in death by his mother Donna Westland and father Robert Rothbauer. He is survived by his brother Edward Rothbauer; sister Karen Spruce; brother Roger Rothbauer; daughter Amy Ellis; son Craig Rothbauer; and daughter Sandra Rothbauer; Kathleen Beckwith; Aspen Beckwith; Autumn Herndon; Cory Beckwith; and Adam Beckwith. David was loved beyond words and will be missed dearly.

To the Rothbauer family I am sending my heartfelt condolences. David and his family always treated my daughter Anastacia like family when we were neighbors and Sandra and Anastacia were attached at the hip. May God help your broken hearts as he embraces Dave in his loving arms. If you need anything, please let me know. Sandra I am here whenever you may need me.
