David Finegold, 78, of La Quinta, passed away January 29, 2011, from complications of a long-term illness, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. He was born November 20, 1932 to Louis and Zelda Finegold in Indianapolis, Indiana. He served honorably in the United States Air Force, then moved to Fort Worth, Texas, where he worked at Gachman Steel Co. for many years as Sales Manager. After retirement from Gachman, he started his own Singing Balloon Delivery business. After the death of his middle daughter, he moved back to Indianapolis, where he met his wife Margueritte. To get away from the cold winters in the Midwest, he and Margueritte moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1996. They started spending winter months in the Coachella Valley and loved it, especially all of the places where he could sing. His love for music became a love of his life, so he pursued his dream and they moved to La Quinta in September 2010. He said that this life was Heaven on Earth for him, and he cherished the friendships they developed. He wanted to be remembered as a person who never tried to hurt, by intent, another human being, always asking forgiveness for his errors. He is preceded in death by his Father, Mother, daughter Marta, brother Marvin and sister-in-law Patsy, and niece Cari. He is survived by his wife, Margueritte; daughters, Ellen Jones (Mike) of Rancho Mirage, Teri Mayerstein (Mark) of Albuquerque, N.M., and Leza Porter (Michael) of Burleston, Texas; former wife Jeanette (Mother of Teri and Leza) of Albuquerque, N.M.; son Kevin Greek (Cherie) of Appleton, Wis.; niece Charna Walker (Roland) of Dateland, Ariz.; eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Private family services were held at Wiefels Funeral Home in Palm Springs. He will be laid to rest in Desert Memorial Park in Cathedral City, CA. Donations may be made in his name to a church or charity of your choice.
