    candle 5David was a great man. He had my full respect for his professional accomplishments and his deep love of family. I knew David as a fun loving cousin as kids on Parr Road. We had great times playing along with his brother Dennis and sister Barbara. Jim came a little later. David’s parents were the best, too, by the way. We lost track of each other as we became adults and went our different ways. Nothing will ever be better than the terrific memories of the Sachs cousins playing together on a summer day or a Christmas afternoon at Grandma Sachs’,

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked with David at the Fox. No matter how hard my day was, I always new the moment I walked into the Fox I would be greeted by his smile and undoubtedly a joke. David would frequently talk about his grandkids and his love for them radiated out. I loved working with David and I will miss him dearly. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I am so sorry for the loss of David. He made ushering at the Fox even more fun than it already was. His laugh and smile were infectious. Not a Saturday night went by that we didn’t talk about the grandkids, even if it was just in passing on the staircase or in the hall. He will be greatly missed.

    You certainly can’t replace a David Sachs. He was fun, jovial, kind and caring, easy to be around who loved his family and friends. I worked with him at the Fox and am proud to call him my friend. He never complained and always volunteered to help out if extra shifts were needed. We bantered about who could sell the most ice cream. It was a friendly competition! RIP my friend, you are missed!

    I knew David Sachs, when I was growing up, on Mexico Road. His family had the house on the corner of Mexico Road and Parr Road, at Edinger Road – before General Motors was built. Most of his family and his cousins are older than me, but, I remember seeing them at Church in Flint Hill, and, other events around the area. I know that his Mom died in the recent past, and, his Aunt Donna Sachs died in the past year. Sorry to read of his passing, in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. My sister Julie Bextermiller Bryan Corbett, BSN, RN died on March 3, 2019. May the Lord bless you in this loss. All things work for good, for those that love the Lord. “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard…the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”- 1 Corinthians 2:9 KJV. Jesus will meet us at the end of life’s journey. – Billy Graham. From your neighbors.
