Obituary for David Glenn Nassimbene

David Glenn Nassimbene, age 71, left to be with the Lord on November 17, 2017, at his home in Lafayette, OR, with family by his side.

David was born on April, 27, 1946 in Denver, CO, and was raised by loving parents, Glenn and Jeannette Nassimbene in Rolling Hills Estates, CA, where they moved when David was still an infant.

He had a career of over 40 years with American Honda Motor Company, beginning at their corporate campus in Torrance, CA and then eventually managing Honda's parts distribution centers in Portland, OR, French Camp, CA and Chino, CA.

From a very young age, Dave had a passion for cars. In his youth he could be found buying and fixing up cars to race at Lion's Drag Strip in Wilmington, CA. This passion reignited after he retired from Honda in 2008. He purchased a '67 Chevelle , modified it into a race car and began racing at the Fontana, CA drag strip and other strips in southern California, Las Vegas, NV as well as Arizona. In Fontana, he met fellow racer Dal Truby who became his "brother from different mothers" and together they remained best friends until Dave's passing.

After moving to Lafayette, OR in 2012 to be closer to children and grandchildren, Dave discovered the Woodburn Drag Strip where he raced and made many friends who shared his love of cars and racing. When he became too ill to race, his good friend Dave Thompson took the wheel and will continue to honor "Crazy Davey" and his amazing wheel standing "lengendary" '67, a fan favorite at the tracks.

David will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 14 years, Patricia, who he nicknamed "Red", and his two beloved sons, Douglas Nassimbene (Hailey) and David DeTroy (Deanna) and five beautiful grandchildren, Dylan, Darci, Deejay, Taylor and Matt.

He is also survived by his sisters, Nancy Nassimbene of Coeur d'Alene, ID and Lynne Melendrez of Jamul, CA.

A graveside service and interment will be held at Friday, November 24, 2017 at 10:00 AM at Evergreen Memorial Park located at 7961 OR-99W, followed by a celebration of David's life at his home at 568 E 16th Street, Lafayette. All are welcome.
