David Robert Dworek

May 13, 2024 | Wilmington, DE

David Robert Dworek, age 60, of Wilmington, Delaware, passed away on May 13, 2024.

David was a graduate of Mt. Pleasant High School in Wilmington, DE.  After graduating, he served his country in the United States Army and then began working as a EIT land surveyor for a civil engineering company.

His family remembers David as a kind soul with a big and gentle heart. A man that could light up a room by just being there. His love for his wife and sons was always evident in everything he did. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved fishing, spending time on the beach, and hanging out with Rockford, his retriever buddy. He was also a cinema buff who enjoyed going to the movies with a big bucket of popcorn. David was loved by all who knew him, and he will be dearly missed.

He is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Joanna Waters Dworek and David’s parents, Leon and Maria Dworek.

He is survived by his sons: Joseph Robert Dworek and Eric Ryan Dworek; his siblings: Jeannie Carrow (John), Theresa Dworek Riley, Jadviga Dworek, Basha Dworek Chance, Richard Leon Dworek, Wanda Dworek, Steven Dworek (Amy), and Mary Ann Grady (Gene); as well as many nieces and nephews, who will always cherish their memories with “Uncle Dave”.

A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, May 29, 2024 starting at 11:00 am at Brandywine Valley Funeral Care, 412 Philadelphia Pike, Wilmington, DE 19809. Interment will follow the service at Lawn Croft Cemetery in Linwood, PA.

  1. Life is a fleeting dance, a delicate balance of moments that unfold before us, never to return in quite the same way again.
    Regret is a bitter pill to swallow, a weight that bears down upon the soul with the burden of missed chances and unspoken words.
    So, let us not leave anything for later. Let us seize the moments as they come, with hearts open and arms outstretched to embrace the possibilities that lie before us.
    For in the end, it is not the things we did that we regret, but the things we left undone, the words left unspoken, the dreams left unfulfilled.
