David Kissane, age 54, of Grayling, Michigan passed away on April 1, 2021.
David was born and raised in the Oak Park and River Forest suburbs of Chicago, where he was a graduate of Oak Park and River Forest High School and Columbia College. He excelled in both his studies and athletics, ultimately beginning his professional career of many years at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
David is survived by his wife and best friend, Mary Pat Kissane; his loving mother, Christine Kissane Show; and brother, John Tringl.
His life was full and filled with adventure, spanning from Chicago, to Northern Michigan, and even the Bahamas, where he and Mary Pat developed a deep love for sailing, the sea, and wonder aboard their catamaran, Wind Cries Mary.
David will be remembered as a lover of films and music, expecially Jimi Hendrix, and was the world's greatest conversationalist, talking and listening passionately with his family and friends for hours about nearly any topic.
David was a foodie in every sense, constantly watching shows, recommending restaurants, experimenting with recipes, and cooking for friends and family while sharing pictures of his favorite meals: deep-dish pizza, Chicago-style beef, and Asian food. He had a vibrant spirit, and was always quick with a joke, providing constant laughs to the people who loved him.
David's life touched countless friends, cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents, who will all miss and celebrate him with love.
Memorial services will be delayed until later summer, and will be held in Michigan and in Chicago, to be announced when as many family members and friends may gather in celebration of his wonderful life.
