David William Goodacre

February 16, 1958 ~ July 31, 2021 (age 63)


David Goodacre, age 63, of Rockville, MD, died on July 31, 2021.  Dave grew up in Silver Spring, MD and lived in the area his entire life.  He graduated from the University of Maryland.  He worked for Fresh Fields / Whole Foods for over 20 years.  Dave loved traveling with his wife Gerrie - especially to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, though they were evacuated numerous times due to hurricanes.  One of his passions was solving crossword puzzles.  He always had dozens printed out and ready to go.
