David J. McCabe
David J. McCabe, 68 of Bennington, NY, passed away peacefully on May 25, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. He was born October 15, 1951 to the late Carlton and Dorothy McCabe.
He is survived by his beloved wife Peggy, and was the loving father of Kelly (Joe) Beck and Colleen (Chris) King, and grandfather to Madelyn, William, Jackson, Evelyn, and June. He is also survived by his sister Linda (Richard) Beeman and mother-in-law Doris Kibler. He was preceded in death by his father-in-law, Robert Kibler.
In 1978, he and his wife formed the trucking company D.J. McCabe, Inc., in which he was owner and operator for over 40 years. Although he was willing to haul almost anything, he began by following in his father’s footsteps hauling milk, which he did for many years. After hauling for Buffalo Molasses for several years, he retired from the business.
He always had a project he was working on, spending a great deal of time in the shop. He enjoyed working on old cars and trucks, and most recently took an interest in woodworking, in which he had an amazing talent. He cherished his time with family and friends, enjoyed taking long gator rides and was known to enjoy a Genny or two. He especially enjoyed the time he spent with his sons-in-law. He was well known and respected in the community, with countless lifelong friends who admired him for his wisdom and experience. When the garage doors were open, it was always an invitation to stop in and visit. He accomplished many things in his life, most importantly teaching us all how with dedication, hard work and the love of family and friends, any obstacles can be overcome.
A Memorial Mass and reception will be held at a later date.
