Vincent Downs Obituary, Death – David Vincent Downs left as his loving family watched from the sidelines. David was conceived in the state of New Jersey on February 24, 1976. When he was a little lad, he relocated to Cupertino with his family. After graduating from Monte Vista High School, he continued his education at De An College before obtaining a position with Northrop Grumman in Sunnyvale. Jennifer, his devoted wife of more than 27 years and lifelong companion, is the only person David has left. He set a good example for his kids David, Kailani, Andrew, Mathew, Michael, and Mya.
In addition to his mother and stepfather, David is also survived by his biological father Chris DiMichele, mother Carol, stepfather Art Downs, father-in-law Dennis Walias, and stepfather Art Downs. Cecilia Walias, his devoted mother-in-law, passed away prior to him. She served as his right-hand lady. David cherished his family time, which included playing games, eating meals, traveling to Hawaii, and going to the beach. And he had the utmost regard and love for them. His children will carry these family memories with them for the rest of their lives.
David had a passion for baseball and was a devoted fan of the San Francisco Giants. He was not just a general club fan but had also coached his boys’ teams in the Morgan Hill Pony League and the Santa Teresa Little League (he had played organized baseball as a child and even for De Anza College). Meeting boyhood hero Will Clark while he was in Spring Training with the Giants was the most memorable experience. David was a passionate auto enthusiast who frequently used his spare time to restore different Camaros. Being able to share his passion for autos with his sons meant the world to him. The greatest legacy David leaves behind will be his children, but his loved ones will grieve deeply for him.
