It is with great sadness and wonderful memories that we announce the passing of David S. Scher on November 16, 2018 at the age of 89. Dave of Naples, Fla, formerly of Coloma, peacefully passed away at Avow Hospice in Naples.

He is now at peace after struggling with Alzheimer's & Parkinson's Disease.

Dave was born May 31, 1929 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He was an Army Veteran of the Korean War active member of the Shriners and Mason's. Prior to retiring, Dave was the owner of The Elite Bar in Watervliet

and a salesman at Krenek RV Super Center.

Dave was a hardworking, extremely active, caring man that would give the shirt off his back in a snowstorm if he had to. Back in the day, Dave loved racing his jet boat "Solid Gold" and his Pontoon Boat with his wife and son, Mark, at Paw Paw Lake Yacht Club.

When he wasn't working or boating, he enjoyed supporting his daughters in their passion for riding horses. He also enjoyed golfing, dancing, art shows, and concerts on the bluff in St. Joseph.

Dave was preceded in death by his late wife Barbara (Bohle) Scher, parents Ray and Marcia Scher, and beautiful daughter Tami McLean-Scher.

He is survived by his sister Roberta (Richard) Resnick, his children, Step-son Rick (Mia) Winans, Mark (Dr. Maria Lourdes) Scher, Kim Scher; and his grandchildren Jordan Donohue and Cali McLean.

Dave will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
