David Kariores, 54

Beverly — David Kariores, son of the late Christy and Katherine Teresa (McKinnon) Kariores, father of Crystal and April Kariores and brother to six siblings: Barbara Davis, Dennis Kariores, Katherine Lobao, and the late Christy Kariores and Pauline Mazzaglia, passed away Thursday morning at Kaplan House in Danvers after battling cancer for over a year. Although it is with a heavy heart to see such a wonderful man leave this world, he has been released from the pain of the disease that took his life.

David was a disabled American Veteran who served in aircraft maintenance as a first class airman in the United States Air Force. David (aka Deak) was a man who found happiness in his work of antique car restoration, spending quality time with family and sharing laughs with close friends. Deak often told animated stories that had everyone on the floor laughing. His legacy will forever remain in the hearts of the family and friends who may be able to reminisce of his lively spirit that was the life of any room. In addition to being a comedic man, David was also a dependable father, brother, uncle and friend who always gave comforting words in times of need and wisdom to help guide his loved ones through trivial times. He will be remembered forever as a man who would do anything for the people he loved.
