David M. Seroski

David Seroski of Trabuco Canyon, CA passed away at home on September 22, 2021 at the age of 70.

Dave’s life was defined by his exuberant spirit and his concern for others.  He spent most of his career working at the Newport Beach Police Department, ensuring they had cars that “ran fast, braked fast, and crashed well.”  His concern extended to his canyon community.  He cheerfully gave help when it was needed, and his neighbors learned to rely on him to track down scarce information when fires raged nearby.

Family was extremely important to Dave.  Dave and his wife, Susan, were married for 33 years after a 3 year courtship, and he always made sure she knew she was loved and cherished.  He loved his son, Shawn Fidler, and while Shawn grew up, Dave proudly forced anyone he could corner to hear about his “smart kid”.

Around the Canyon, Dave’s love for his horses Ted and Max was common knowledge.  He treated the horses with gentleness, care, and a sense of humor and the horses loved him in return.  Other horses learned to know Dave for the great treats he carried and frequently riders found their horses sideling up to Dave to get one.

David is survived by his wife, Susan; his son, Shawn Fidler (Lori); and his sisters Patricia O’Neill and Beth DiMarcantonio.

Services for Dave will be held Tuesday, October 5, 2021.  Viewing is from 10 to noon at O’Connor Mortuary in Laguna Hills, followed at 12:30 with graveside services at El Toro Memorial Park on Trabuco Rd in Lake Forest.

  1. Our deepest sympathies go out to Susan and the Seroski family. Dave was such a kind and gentle soul and was always so giving. His love for his family and Teddy and Max made everyone around him smile. It is so strange how much joy someone can bring to an entire area in the canyon. Dave was so generous and would bring Ted and Max by the ranch I was selling to help me showcase the great Equestian features. I remember pop ice with Dave and Susan on the hot ranch open house days and the amazing hearts they shared with all that stopped by. Thank you for always helping. You are missed by all!
