David Alexander Morales came into this world January 15, 1980 and gained his wings on October 16, 2020.
David was born to Eleanor Lopez and David Morales in Mesa, Arizona where he spent most of his young adult life. David attended Mesa High School and graduated early with honors at the Community Partners Academy Private School in 1997. David lived a life full of family, faith, football, and laughter. David was a man of faith, who served the Lord and loved attending the house of God with his family. Being the family man he was, David found joy in making countless memories with his wife and children. Some of his favorite times with his family involved relaxing at Mission Beach, hanging out at Balboa Park, visiting Disneyland and camping. Everyday life was filled with laughter whenever David was around. He was always making jokes with his witty sense of humor and sarcasm. Not only did David enjoy making people laugh but he loved to laugh himself and enjoyed watching funny movies and tv shows. Football season was David’s favorite time of the year, but Christmas came in a close second. David loved the Christmas season. He loved going holiday shopping for hours, wrapping gifts, hanging Christmas décor, and singing Christmas songs. Pursuing his love for football, David started the Braves youth football organization and coached his sons for over 10 years. During his time coaching he empowered and touched the lives of many youth. His legacy will live on through his family, the youth he impacted and the friends he made.
David is survived by his wife, Bianca; sons, Zion, and Mateo; daughters, Leticia, Isabella, Jada and Brielle; grandchild; Emory; parents; David Morales and Eleanor Lopez; sisters; Alishia and Christine, In-Laws and nieces and nephews.
