On Friday July 17, 2020, the Yu Family lost a devoted husband, father and grandfather.
An American hero and patriot, David Yu passed tragically away from 9/11 cancer. David enlisted in the United States Army in 1987 and honorably for 26 years. While serving, he conducted a combat tour in Iraq from 2002-2003 and retired from the Army in May 2014.
In 1996 David joined the NYPD 1996 where he was assigned to 103th Precinct and served the south Jamaica community both on patrol and community affairs. On August 2, 2011, he was promoted to Sergeant and was assigned to Strategic Response Group 4. He retired from the NYPD in 2017.
David leaves behind his beautiful wife, Damaris Yu of 31 years together, his daughter Tamara Yu, son David Yu, Jr. and three lovely grand children who will forever miss being held by the most amazing grand papa in the world.
David was 54th years old at the time of his death. He was strong enough to serve in two unique uniforms joined by a common bond to serve for our Country and our City.
On behalf of the Yu Family, this campaign is to raise funds to assist with hardship expenses for David’s family.
“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear
