David A. Blais, age 71, passed away on Saturday, December 24, 2022, at his home in Walpole, Massachusetts. Born in Norwood, Massachusetts on January 22, 1951, he was the son of the late Alonzo and Mary Elizabeth (Marino) Blais. He was raised along with his three siblings in Walpole and graduated from Walpole High School with the class of 1969 and lived out his life as a Walpole resident.
For most of his career, David shared his love of cars with the community by being in automotive sales. He also owned his own leasing company and appreciated being a part of the process for people to get their vehicles. He spent almost 30 years in the industry until he decided to focus on odd jobs that would support him but would also allow him to focus on the things that brought him joy.
During the warm New England months, David loved nothing more than to grab his fishing poles and see what was biting at the local ponds. As much as he frequented his usual spots, he would also like to try his luck at the watering holes in surrounding areas.
On one of his odd job ventures, David found himself working on a golf course and took to the activity. He would ask his friends to play a round with him and sometimes even suggested a second when good weather and time permitted. Always looking for a challenge, David would visit different courses and see how well he could do. He tried his hardest to stay on the green but every once in a while, those sand traps seemed to come out of nowhere.
When David wasn’t outside enjoying outdoor activities, he could be found playing his favorite instrument, the drums. His drum set was one of his prized possessions. He enjoyed playing and creating his own beats but also like to learn how to play the beats to popular songs.
Devoted son to the late Alonzo Joseph and Mary Elizabeth (Marino) Blais.
