David (Dave) McKinley, 75, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, August 30th in Las Vegas, surrounded by his family and friends. Dave is survived by his children; Debbie, David, Dori, and son-in-law, Steven; his grandchildren, Derek, Megan, Troy, Taylor, and Dagny; his best friend Jackie, his goddaughter Julene, and his loyal canine companion Lilly. He is now joined in Heaven with his wife, Dolores, who preceded him in passing.
Dave was born in Waterloo, Iowa, and spent his childhood through early adult years in the south side of Chicago, moved to California with his young family and after many years later retired in Las Vegas. He was a man of many talents, chief among them was storytelling as he loved to talk about his early years with Dolores and his many friends. Another was his love of music and his wonderful singing voice. The song playing when he passed was “The Prayer” by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli. Perfect. He loved his family, his friends, and Jesus. He led a full and complete life and will be dearly missed.
