Dutch retired in 2009 from Defense Logistic Agency as Director of Maintenance Division in Mechanicsburg, PA. He loved children and was very proud to coach Geneva Little League for many years. Dutch was married to his loving wife of 52 years Barb (Oddi) Davie . Together, they raised two wonderful children Michelle (Andy) Candidori and Brad (Moon) Davie of whom he was very proud. Dutch cherished his 4 granddaughters, Olivia and Sofia Candidori, and Mayson and Brielle Davie. Even though Dutch was taken too soon, he lived an extraordinary life travelling, socializing, golfing and fishing with people who adored him, his wit and his enthusiasm for spending time with those he loved. In addition to his brother Michael (Bethany) Davie, he is survived by his loving extended family Mike and Marien Canale and their 4 daughters, whom he thought of as his own, Marla, Mia, Marisa and Michele. He was also survived by many friends who enriched his life and whom he loved dearly.
