David C. Larkin, 41, of North St. Marys Street, St. Marys, passed away Saturday, October 16, 2021, at Chautauqua Lake.
He was born September 18, 1980, in St. Marys, son of Darlene Meyer Larkin, who survives of St. Marys, and the late Dana Larkin, who passed away in June 2003. David was a lifelong resident of St. Marys, was a 1998 graduate of St. Marys Area High School, as well as a 2003 graduate of Penn State University. He was currently a real estate agent at Elk County Real Estate.
In addition to his mother, Darlene Larkin, David is survived by his brother, Dustin Larkin of Kersey; his nieces, Lola and Lux Larkin; and by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Besides his father, Dana Larkin, David was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Arthur and Jean Meyer; and by his paternal grandparents, Charles and Patricia Larkin.
David was the epitome of what growing up in a small community can flourish into. He took pride in the history and heritage of the community and the people that make it. He was involved in countless organizations including the Stackpole Hall Foundation, St. Marys Heritage Preservation Group, Junior Achievement, Shadetree Commission, the Fireworks Committee, Ridgway Heritage Council, St. Marys Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Elk County, ECCOTA, Young Professionals Group, CEC, Red Cross, and more. Through his personality and perseverance, David managed to network and connect with people, families, and businesses that stretched far beyond Elk County. He believed in supporting our local small businesses and frequented places like New Horizons Healthy Foods. He was a Christian by faith and had a strong personal relationship with God. He enjoyed spending his Sunday mornings watching the Tri County Church services. His heart was as big as his friends list and family tree, whose roots spread throughout Elk County. David enjoyed traveling and discovered a passion for camping. He took health of mind, body, and soul seriously and strived to take the best care of himself and those around him. He adored his two nieces and was adored by so many. He appreciated art and décor and was drawn to architecture from a very young age. David is irreplaceable in our hearts and in our community.
Family and friends are invited to attend a Funeral Service which will be held at the Camp Owners, 300 Camp Owners Road, St. Marys, on Friday, October 22, 2021, at 12:00 PM, with the Rev.
