Bageant, David W.
David W. Bageant passed away peacefully on April 6,
2010 with his devoted dogs by his side. He is reunited
with parents Donald and Emma Lou Bageant. David was
known for his kind, generous spirit, and his determination to live life to the fullest. He was an
inspiration to all who knew and loved him. He leaves
behind his devoted partner of 10 years, Brett Hobza,
the Hobza family who loved him like another son, his
loving sister Margie Guy, brother-in-law Joey, and
nephews Alex and Chris, sisters Cathy Bageant and
Patty Campbell, and niece Jennifer Campbell. David's
most cherished friends and extended family include
Kris and Ted Wilson, John and Nanci Burk, Tiffany and
Matt Mason, Mike and Holly Brauer, Livi and Ray
Brasher, Deb Scott, and his long-time best friend Seth
Eskigian. Especially close to David's heart were his
nephews Eston and Max Brauer. A retired math teacher
from Madison #1 Middle School, David had a
tremendous impact on the lives of his many students,
who kept in contact with him long after graduation.
David's Facebook page is filled with beautiful tributes
from his students. His students were a constant source
of inspiration for him, but one special student held a
dear place in David's heart. Julia Banahan stood at
David's side every day during his playground duty. She
"made his day" with her sweet, caring spirit, and every
morning he spent with her, in his words, "gave him a
push to be a kinder, better person." David spoke of
her often as the most cherished memory of his
teaching experience. Recently, David completed
training to be a volunteer tutor at Phoenix Children's
Hospital and was excited to be working with the kids
soon. Second only to his love of kids was his love of
dogs. His "puppies" Parker, Kendall, and Cooper were
the center of his days, and were at his side as his spirit
passed into the Light. A memorial mass will be held to
celebrate David's life on April 24th, 1:30pm, at Our
Lady of Angels (Franciscan Renewal Center), 5802 E.
Lincoln. In lieu of flowers, the family requests a
donation in David's honor to Phoenix Children's
Hospital Foundation (2929 E. Camelback, Suite 122,
Phoenix, AZ 85016).
