The family of David Paul Bedrosian, 59, is heartbroken to announce his passing on August 6, 2019.

Dave was an amazing husband and father, deeply loved and adored by his wife of 26 years, Kathy (McWalter), and by his son and the joy of his life, Sam. He was the cornerstone of his large, extended family, leaving behind his brother Peter and his wife Deborah of Whitinsville, brother Richard and his wife Bettyjean of Whitinsville, sister Nancy and her husband Richard of Burlington, aunt Sylvia Bedrosian of Whitinsville, and best friend Paul Mandrafino and his wife Lisa of Pennsylvania. He also leaves behind his sister-in-law Diane Ciampi and her husband Doug of Westminster, his brother-in-law Richard McWalter of Concord, and his many nieces, nephews, and grandniece, all of whom he loved to spend time with.

Dave was born on December 29, 1959 in Whitinsville to the late Peter and Suzanne (Malkasian) Bedrosian. He graduated valedictorian from Northbridge High School and earned a B.S. in Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he was a member of the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity, whose members meant so much to him. He worked at a number of technology companies throughout the Boston area, including Cognex Corporation, where he met his wife, Kathy; IDC; Trip Advisor; iRobot; and most recently, Amazon Robotics. He was awarded four U.S. patents for technology and was recognized with numerous accolades and awards throughout his career.

As dedicated as he was to his work, Dave’s top priority was spending time with his family and creating a wonderful life for them. One of his favorite roles was serving as a coach for his son’s baseball and basketball teams. He also greatly enjoyed cooking and baking for his family; spending time outdoors together kayaking, hiking, and swimming; traveling to amusement parks to ride the tallest and fastest roller coasters with his son; and hosting regular game nights, pool parties, and holiday gatherings for family and friends.

Dave also pursued many interests, including earning a private pilot’s license and flying his Cessna 172 airplane; playing and developing video games; singing, playing the guitar, and writing songs; reading and continuously learning; and golfing. He was a lifelong member of the Soorp Asdvadzadzin Armenian Apostolic Church in Whitinsville, where he served for many years as Treasurer on its Board of Trustees and devoted his time to the church’s many annual bazaars, summer picnics, and other events.

What Dave will be most remembered for, though, was his great sense of humor and his exceedingly kind, humble, generous, loving, and thoughtful nature. He was always watching out for his family, friends, and anyone in need, regularly and quietly offering assistance in any way possible, whether it was helping with a move, providing rides to appointments, fixing a computer, mentoring, paying a bill, offering advice, teaching a skill, donating to causes, providing encouragement, or simply showing compassion toward someone who needed to be uplifted. He cared genuinely and deeply about all of those around him.

Dave was a truly good man and a fine example to everyone who knew him.

Dave’s funeral will be held Tuesday, August 13th at 10:30 am at the Soorp Asdvadzadzin Armenian Apostolic Church in Whitinsville and burial will follow in Howard Street Cemetery in Northborough. Calling hours are Monday, August 12th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Hays Funeral Home, 56 Main Street, Northborough.

Dave was a wonderful guy - I'm very sorry and saddened to see him go . I still remember when he learned the Japanese alphabet "on the plane ride over". "Dave's a great guy - you should get to know him..."
