David Genge

December 11, 1956 — December 19, 2017

David Scott Genge lived his life with love for his family, faith in God, and a quirky sense of humor. Born December 11, 1956, in Lincoln, Neb., he grew up primarily in Garden Grove, Calif., and graduated from Pacifica High School and Cal State Fullerton. He worked most of his career in accounting and information technology but recently enjoyed working at Mercy Hospital.

He married the love of his life, Marti (Charon) in 1984, and they were blessed with two children Brittany and A.J.

He loved playing his early 1970s Rickenbacker bass guitar - still in mint condition - and lighting up his neighborhood with Christmas lights. He was an avid fan of the Razorbacks, Indy car racing, and science fiction movies.

He is survived by his wife, Marti Genge of Bayfield, daughter and son-in-law Brittany & Caleb Christie of Arkansas, son A.J. Genge of Durango, mother Mildred (Gealy Genge) Esten and numerous siblings, extended family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father Robert Edwin Genge and stepfather Ralph "Pete" Esten.

He died suddenly on December 19, 2017 from a previously unknown heart defect, but all who knew him recognized that he had a special heart.

The Rosary will be held at St. Columba Catholic Church at 6:30 pm Tuesday, December 26. A funeral Mass will take place on Wednesday, December 27 at 10 am, followed by a graveside service at Greenmount Cemetery.

Memorial donations can be made to St. Columba Catholic Church, 1800 E. 2nd Avenue, Durango, CO 81301.
