Dave was born at Bellvue Hospital. He was the beloved the son of David and Annie (DeBlasio) Kowalski. He was raised in the loving community of Rotterdam, and was a graduate of Schalmont High School class of 2003.
He was an extremely loyal and passionate boyfriend, friend, uncle, brother, and son. David's infectious laugh and booming voice would often make heads turn, especially during a Buffalo Bills game!
David was predeceased by two of his cherished idols; "Grandma Dege" (DeBlasio) and "Aunt Irma" (Pardi).
Survivors include his parents David and Anne Kowalski, the love of his life - Chene´ Gary, his sister, Rachael (Corey) Osinski, and his nephews Jayden and Austin Osinski.

In heaven, Jesus welcomes our David Josh. We will all miss you on this earth, but will remember you forever, as heaven has you now.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, at 9 am at St. Anthony's Church, 331 Seward Place. Interment will follow in St. Anthony's Cemetery, Glenville.
