David Zale, of Highland, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, in his 61st year. He was born in Gary, Indiana to Gloria and (late) Daniel Zale, and was a life-long resident of the region. Dave was an immensely talented person in many fields and loved to share his talent with everyone. He attended art school in Illinois, loved to paint and cook, and was an amazing bass guitar player. He was a loyal friend – warm, generous and funny, and everything he did was out of love for his family and friends.
David is survived by his beloved mother, Gloria; his brother, Doug (Jennie) Zale; sister, Julie (Art) Snow; dear nieces and nephews: Danielle (Nick) Payne, Peter (Sara) Zale, John (Catarina) Zale, Christian (Meagan) Snow, Hayden (Sinclair) Buntin, and Olivia Snow; 6 great nieces and nephews; his best furry friend, Bingo; and many, many loving friends and extended family.
His humor and friendship will be greatly missed and he will be fondly remembered by all who were blessed to have known him.
A memorial service for David will be held at 1:00 PM on Tuesday, April 11, 2023, at First United Methodist Church (352 S Main St, Crown Point, IN 46307). Pastor Mark Wilkins officiating.
