Obituary: David Edward Barger, Sr. "Bird" of Thorofare and National Park

David Edward Barger, Sr. "Bird" of Thorofare and National Park on July 27, 2012. Age 52 years.

A good hearted, people pleaser, Bird loved life. Every morning he would begin the day at Heritage's with his coffee club friends and then would head to Beach Hill. Christmas was his favorite time of the year and enjoyed get togethers with his family. He loved spending time at the shore; especially when he was fishing and crabbing and also loved to go camping and four wheeling in the mountains. He was a volunteer member of the National Park Fire Department for 12 years and was employed as a machine operator with Bogey's Paving for many years. Bird was happy to achieve several things off his "bucket list": Shrimping in FL/LA, going to Disney and most especially, he was thankful to see his daughter Alicia graduate from High School. He was a good guy that will be missed by many.
He is the Beloved son of the late Barbara (nee Tucker) and William Barger; loving boyfriend of Eleanor McDonald; devoted father of Alicia Barger and Allison McDonald; dear brother of William Barger, Jr. (Marie), Barbara Walker (Charles), Jennifer Sullivan (Steve), Patricia "Pat" Zee (the late, William), Donald Barger (Donna), Joann Lucas, Dolores Milligan and Diane Barger (Tommy); loving grandfather of Avaya Bowman.
