NAPLES — David T. Johnston Sr., 72, died unexpectedly in his home with his beloved wife present, on Wednesday, June 15, 2016.

He was born Oct. 25, 1943, in Waltham, Mass., the son of Robert and Eileen Johnston.

Dave enjoyed sitting in his green recliner watching classic car shows, working on cars, camping, going to the coffee shops to gossip with the “Ole Bucks,” and spending time with his #1 granddaughter Hopey, his #2 granddaughter, Bella (don’t worry Hopey, we clarified this), and his wife Ruthy Johnston

He is survived by his beloved second wife of 39 years, Ruth E. Johnston, 58, of Naples; his baby girl Tracy Johnston, 38, of Biddeford; his daughter, Christina Larrabee of Windham; his son, Bobby Bedard of Westbrook; and six his grandchildren.

He was predeceased by his first wife of 16 years, Patricia Leary; and by his four sons, David T. Johnston Jr., Martin F. Johnston, Frederick T. Johnston and Richard R. Johnston.

As his favorite saying goes: “Behold my grave as you pass by for as you are so once was I. For as I am so you must be, prepare for death and follow me.” We all miss you so much Daddy and weren’t ready for this. However, we take comfort in knowing you are finally with all your boys and your heartache from the pain of your losses is finally over and you have found your peace. We love you with all our heart!

Visiting hours were held 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, June 20, 2016 at Hall Funeral Home, 165 Quaker Ridge Road, Casco. Online condolences may be left for the family at hallfuneralhome.net
