David’s laugh, smile, and goofiness were contagious to everyone he encountered.
He served in the United States Army from 2003 - 2013 during which he did a tour in Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In returning home he became an advocate in supporting veterans to help change legislation to provide veterans with more resources.
He also went on to receive his Associates Degree in Political Science. He was a huge community supporter wherever he was and did anything he could to help in whatever way possible.
My beloved son lost the long time battle with his demons while in Florida on August 29, 2020 and I am left with saying goodbye to another son. The financial hardship of getting his body back home along with being able to cover unexpected expenses during this time has put a strain our family.
We have already received an outpouring of support for our family and for that I am grateful. Anything you can contribute will be appreciated.
David is survived by his grandmother, Ruth Primett; mother and step father, Laura Goodpaster and Sean Kelly; sister, Michelle Ahrarian; nieces and nephews; Evan Keller, Miguel Perez, Madelina Ahrarian, Mia Ahrarian, Maddox Ramirez; along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, and extended family.
David is preceded in death by his brother, Joe Perez.
Inurnment will take place at a later date in Quantico National Cemetery.
