David Craig Althouse Obituary, Redwood City man has passed away


David Craig Althouse Obituary, Death – Craig David Althouse, David The 17th of November, 1964 The 26th of December, 2023 The birth of David Craig Althouse took place at Sequoia Hospital in Redwood City on November 17, 1964. He died away peacefully in his sleep at Sonora Community Hospital on December 26, 2023. His formative years were spent in Los Altos, California, and he eventually spent the last twenty years of his life on the banks of Lake Tulloch in Copperopolis, California, where he was free from the constraints of the modern world.

David’s life was very eventful, and he lived to be only 59 years old. Even though he was just 17 years old at the time, he was able to find a job on the Mississippi River, where he worked on river barges that traveled up and down the river. Although he had an injury that required him to have his left leg amputated below the knee, he did not let this setback restrict his progress. It was in the presence of a body of water, on a boat, and frequently with a fishing rod in his hand that he felt the most at ease.

It was also well-known that he had a strong affinity for animals. Although he had a large number of canines throughout his life, he also took care of a wide variety of other exotic creatures. It was not unusual to see him with a python wrapped around his neck or, when he was a young lad, a blue belly or alligator lizard that he had discovered in the neighborhood or at Adobe Creek, tucked away in his pocket.

When David lived in the past, he would have been a pioneer, a pioneering pioneer, an explorer, a discoverer, and an innovator. He would have been a true frontiersman. He was able to make use of anything and repurpose everything; nothing was useless to him, and perhaps most importantly, he did not consider anyone to be worthless. When it came to the people he loved and cared about, he displayed an unrivaled level of loyalty, and he was extremely generous.

In addition to his time spent working on the Mississippi River, he spent a significant amount of time in Louisiana and Mississippi on the Gulf Coast, where he engaged in activities such as fishing, crabbing, and exploring. He was a huge fan of the Grateful Dead and Mardi Gras.

David is survived by a big and loving family, which includes his parents, brothers, children, grandkids, nieces, nephews, relatives, friends, neighbors, and many pets over the years, including his cherished rescue dog, Benji, who passed away not too long ago. The Garden House at Shoup Park in Los Altos will be the location of a celebration of life on January 27, 2024, at 4:30 p.m., and anyone who wishes to attend is more than welcome to do so. Donations to a local animal rescue organization of your choosing would be greatly appreciated by David instead of flowers. He would be grateful for your generosity.
