David Henry Kagerer
David Henry Kagerer passed away unexpectedly
Friday, November 23, 2018 at his home in Gresham,
Oregon. David had spent the past 10 years as the
manager of Sandy Animal Supply in Sandy, Oregon.
The best part of Dave's day was being able to work
beside his beloved children, and next door to the
love of his life, Brandy. Dave's smile, kindness, and
help were all things you could count on anytime you
were fortunate enough to meet this amazing man.
David was born November 10,1976 in Glenwood
Springs, Colorado to Henry and Kris Kagerer. Dave
was always so proud of his veterinarian father, who
let him go on house calls to deliver livestock, and
his mother who he bragged could've been a concert
pianist. He was one of six siblings who he did his best
to love; Tracy, Kerry, Ben, Kaytlin, and Kimberlin.
Dave spent his childhood and teenage years in
the Colorado's "Aspen Valley" snowboarding,
skateboarding, and making life-long friends.
At age 20, David married Brandy
Crawford, moved to the Midwest and had three
wonderful children. They spent the next seven
years raising their children in Okoboji, Iowa
until moving to Gresham Oregon in 2004.
David enjoyed living in Oregon because the
mountains reminded him of his hometown in
Colorado and the ocean gave him a chance to surf
and listen to the waves he called therapy. David's
love of the mountains and the ocean were best seen
in his beautiful paintings he had been creating since
his teenage years. He was one of the most creative
and expressive men any of us will ever meet.
David would say his most important
accomplishment was his family; his son, Triston,
his two daughters, Koral and Skylar, and the woman
he chose to love for over 21 years, Brandy. David
will be loved and missed "forever and 2 days."
A memorial will be held for any and all who
knew and loved David at the Kingdom Hall of
Jehovah's Witnesses on Saturday, December 15,
2018 at 2:00 pm. (17320 NE Glisan St, Portland, Or,
97230) Please share your stories and experiences
Cards and flowers can be sent to 502 NE Scott Ave,
