David G. Slaughter

June 15, 1960 ~ August 7, 2018 (age 58)

David G. Slaughter left this earth fighting the fight and knowing that no one fights alone! He left behind his wife of 38 years, Shirley, sons Joseph Leary (Denise), Jason Leary, grandchildren Jordan, Aidan, Connor, and Gavan, father Nelson, nephew Michael Grier (Alice), and goddaughter ReAnna Smith. He was preceded in death by his mother Dagmar and brother Paul. Dave may be gone from us but will never be forgotten. He was a man of honor, and his family was everything to him.  Special thanks go to the staff at the Helen Graham Center and the sixth floor Oncology unit at Christiana Hospital, as well as to friend Robert Cat Nally. 

A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, August 14th, 2018 at St.Paul's Methodist Church, 1314 Foulk Rd. Wilmington at 5pm where family and friends may call after 3pm.

Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Helen Graham Cancer Center, 4701 Ogletown-Stanton Road, Newark, DE 19713, online at
