He is survived by his loving wife of 29 years, Shari McMaster Beaver; two daughters, Claire McMaster Beaver and Rachel McNeil Beaver; his mother, Mary McNeil Beaver; cousin, Jay McNeil and his wife Dana; along with an extended family that he dearly loved.

David always found the humor in life’s everyday moments. He was a lifelong practical joker, avid fan of drag racing, loved spending time in Jackson, Wyo., but most of all he loved his girls. A caring son, good friend, wonderful father, loving husband, and a one-of-a-kind great man that will be cherished in the hearts by those that loved and knew him.
