David J McCourt

d. April 27, 2020

David James McCourt David, 75, was born in London, England and grew up in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia and has resided in Erdenheim since 1973. David attended Roman Catholic HS and Temple University. He served in the United States Air Force as a Sgt from 1967-1971. He went on to work in the banking industry for his entire career as a VP of Client Advisory. In his retirement, he was an active member of the American Legion Post #10 in Fort Washington. He was a longtime, devoted and active member of St. Genevieve’s Parish in Flourtown. He served on the home advisory board for his community neighborhood. One of his life highlights was a trip back to Ireland with his son Andrew. He was looking forward to a future trip there again to visit family. David was the kindest, sweetest Irish soul around. Family was his life, whether you were born into it, wed into it, or became a part of his family by default. He was a devoted loving father who raised his 3 children. He was a step- father who loved his 4 step children unconditionally just as he loved his own 3 children. He was there for all of us, through good times and bad, as a father and friend always. We loved getting his random texts updating us on his beloved Phillies and Eagles, or making us listen to his newest Irish music CD. He was the best fun-loving Poppy around for the last 24 years. He enjoyed so many lacrosse, soccer, softball,basketball and baseball games and dance recitals. He was so proud wearing Alexa, Amanda, Kelly and Katie’s college hats and sweatshirts, and wore them just so he could brag about his girls to his friends. He couldn’t wait to get the next ones from Robert & Julia. He loved baby Luke, his Irish mini, and was looking forward to the arrival of Luke’s sister this June. He couldn’t wait to meet newborn twins Sophia & Isabelle in person instead of just by video these last couple weeks. David loved our Mom, Sandy, so much and brought her so much joy for the last 25 years. We are so grateful for all he has done, caring for and devoting his love to her with his whole heart. As a true Catholic Irishman David could be found at church or at a pub. He had many friends and could walk into any pub or restaurant in Flourtown and have them all call him by name and know all about his life. So when you’re in town, raise your glass to Dave, and ask to hear a tale of one of the best guys around. David is survived by his Wife: Sandra (McQuillan) McCourt Children: Andrew (Bianca) McCourt,Susan McCourt, Michael McCourt, children of David and Rosalyn.
