Obituary of David Tillman
David Charles Tillman, a long-time resident of New Rochelle, NY, died on August 9th, 2022 at the age of 65 after a long fought battle with lymphoma.
He was born October 21st, 1956, to Morris and Zelma (Wielkotz) Tillman and raised in Clifton, NJ with his younger brother Ross. He attended University of Rochester for his BA and Cornell University for his MBA.
Throughout David’s life, he and his family of four moved from Stamford, CT to Minneapolis, MN, to Copenhagen, then New Rochelle. He had the travel bug and passed that on to his children. He was always up for an adventure, new or old, well-thought-out or not, up until the very end.
David had the kind of personality that people gravitated towards. He was one of a kind. He was welcoming, gregarious and generous. He made friends from all walks of life and managed to make everyone feel like a close friend.
David will be greatly missed by everyone that knew and loved him.
David’s funeral service will be Sunday, August 14 at 10am at Larchmont Temple, 75 Larchmont Avenue, Larchmont, NY. The family has asked that everyone wear a mask. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Camp Kesem, or the charity of your choosing.
