David Alan Trindade was born in Fall River Massachusetts, on August 16, 1948. He was the first born of Joseph and Veronica Trindade, followed by his sister Joyce Trindade. He spent his early childhood years in Massachusetts until his family moved to Reseda, California. As a young adult Dave moved to the Santa Clarita Valley, where he raised his first two children Tammy and Gina Trindade. Dave had a special talent for custom painting high end cars, Harleys and hot rods and in the late 70’s opened his first body shop “Northridge Motor Carriage”. He then proceeded to open a wrecking yard “Auto Heaven Dismantling”, and from there he got into the trucking business. When he wasn’t busy working, he loved taking his family boating, camping and participated in boat and car racing. In the late 80’s Dave moved to Big Bear Lake, California where he opened “Bear Mountain Motor Carriage” and continued his trucking business. He later met his wife Deborah Trindade along with her children, Brandon, Trevor, Megan, Jessica and Taylor that he loved and adored as his own. Some of Dave’s favorite things were Camping in Lake Tahoe at Camp Richardson, watching nascar, listening to country music and had a special love for dogs. Dave was the first one to help someone in need whether it was a close friend or a stranger standing outside the market. Dave had the biggest heart and was a wonderful husband, father, brother and friend. On March 17, 2019 David Alan Trindade passed away. He was preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Veronica Trindade. He is survived by his wife Deborah Trindade, his sister Joyce Stuart, his children Tammy Stowell, Gina Elliott, Brandon Harper, Trevor Harper, Megan Levish, Jessica Burton and Taylor Trindade, and his grandchildren Ashley (Elliott) Barritt, Colton Elliott, Sheridan Stowell, Slater Stowell, Cole Harper, Samantha Levish, Devin Levish and Madison Levish.
