David Charles Bock

September 21, 1943 ~ April 25, 2018 (age 74)

David Bock passed away from cancer at his home on April 25. He wished to be remembered as an enthusiastic Catholic, a psychologist and a devoted husband and father. He is remembered by those who loved him for his rare combination of intellect, kindness, humor and wisdom. He leaves behind his wife of 37 years, Joyce, his two children, Jesse and Susannah, two step-children Claire and Matthew, nine beautiful grandchildren, his brother Don, sister-in-law Mary, two nephews, Greg and Kevin and their eight children, as well as innumerable devoted friends.
Born in New Jersey and attending high school in Mt. Lebanon, Pa, he graduated from Northwestern University in Chicago in Geology. He attended Fuller Seminary in Pasadena where he received a Master’s degree and a PhD in Clinical Psychology. He was a practicing clinical psychologist until 2001.
David was beloved by his family for wild road trips and hikes to remote and obscure locations. He loved collecting stamps and minerals, and working on model trains and home renovation projects. Goodness and mercy followed him all the days of his life. His body was worn out but his spirit is alive. He was a man of courage who faced his illnesses with steadiness and bravery. He will be terribly missed.  The family wishes to thank Dr. John Hausdorff, the many kind nurses at CHOMP and Westland House and Hospice of the Central Coast.
A memorial service will be held at San Carlos Cathedral in Monterey at 1:00 pm on Saturday, May 19th followed by a reception at the church. All are welcome to attend.

Thank you for your condolences for David, beloved husband, father, brother, and friend.
