The following loving tribute was written by David’s family:
David T. Antonini went Home to be with his Lord and Savior on November 16th, 2017 after a 20 year battle with horrific physical and mental pain. He was 35 years old. He was the beloved husband of Kristina Graham Antonini, the loving son of Donna Antonini (Robinson) and the late Nicholas J. Antonini, the brother of Matthew Antonini and his wife Jennifer, and the grandson of Margaretta Robinson and the late Thomas Robinson. He is also the uncle of three.
David was a fabulous athlete. “He could run like a cheetah”. He said I love to run because it frees my Tourette’s. David graduated from William Tennent High School and attended Bucks County Community College. He graduated with honors in the school of hard knocks. David attended Calvary Chapel and Davisville Church. David’s passion was the outdoors. He loved hunting, fishing, and boats. When able to do these things he was joyful. He enjoyed woodworking. David loved his country, history, and politics. He volunteered with the Republican Party.
Every fabric of his being was filled with compassion, kindness, humility, generosity, and slapstick stooge-like humor that kept us all laughing. David always had a compliment for those he met while always being most grateful for the smallest act of kindness.
David has left an indelible imprint on all of our lives. He will be missed deeply but his smile will live in our hearts forever. David always said his best friend was Jesus, because he never left my side. Well David, he didn’t. He called you Home. Relatives and friends were invited to his memorial service at 6:30 P.M. Thursday December 7th at Davisville Church, 325 Street Road, Southampton, PA 18966. Donations may be made in his memory to St. Jude (Children’s Prosthetics), 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38015.
