David Scott Frigger

July 11, 1955 - November 24, 2016


David enjoyed his life. Even though he battled lung disease for the majority of his days, he never let on, he never wanted to be treated differently and he never let it stand in his way of having a good time.

At 23, after following his retiring parents to California from Ohio, David became a tool designer for a medical device manufacturer, earning special recognition for his work from his employer. He then moved into R&D engineering where each day he would face a blank sheet of paper where his own, original, ideas would flow. David’s contribution to the tracheostomy tube business resulted in multiple patents in his name.

David retired from his working career as a medical device manufacturing engineer and focused on his proudest accomplishment: his sons. He also became more involved in church service at Mission Hills. Volunteering for Royal Kids Camp, Ushering, Create a Crate, teaching 4 -5 years olds, and leading a small men’s group.

David LOVED to vacation with his family.. spending time together playing in the sun, having fun in the water, enjoying beautiful sunsets, walks on the beach, . . . and when he wasn’t on a vacation ..and even when he was.. he would be planning the next one.

David was an avid fisherman. For close to 15 years he was a regular at Dana Point Wharf where he fished for yellow tail, bass, and whatever else was biting. David constantly referred to his fishing time as “being in God’s nature”… Even though he thought sea lions were only there to annoy the fisherman.

David grew up in a small town near Cleveland, Ohio where he was a big Browns fan, but after moving to California quickly favored the Lakers. Phil Jackson could have heard David yelling at the TV he might have thrown in the towel!

Not much made David happier than his sons… Soccer, Junior Lakers, flag football, Tae Kwon Do, Cross Country, Football and Track… He never missed a match, a scrimmage, a game, or a race. David volunteered at El Toro Baptist Christian School while the boys were there, was baptized along side with them at Mission Hills, taught them how to drive, and ensured they understood the value and importance of an education and even more important, family. Most of all, he made sure they came to know our Lord and Savior Jesus.

David married Linda in 1989; after 27 and half years of marriage their love remained just as strong as day one.

Last, but not least, David enjoyed spending time with his friends. His family wants to thank each and every one of you for sharing your time to hang out, work out, play games, fish, worship, serve, pray, and study the Word with him.

He will be sorely missed.

  1. Lit a candle in memory of David Scott Frigger

  2. i remember David as a five-year-old back in Maple Heights, Ohio. My BFF Ruth, his sister, and I would see him at home as a very young boy. Then he grew to be the young man who would live with Ruth in California temporarily, and I’d visit them.

    After marrying Linda, he became the wonderful Dad of Jacob and Eric, twins that Ruth adored as well. They were all a very important part of the Mission church. Ruth and I attended a lovely Easter service there years ago.

    David is now in his Heavenly home with loved ones who’ve gone before him. And I know he is at peace and in perfect health. God bless his loving spirit and his remaining loved ones here on earth.

  3. I have fond memories of Dave back in the foggy past of Shiley where we worked together. Dave was always friendly, easy-going and affable with a ready smile to anyone he met. Even now I smile as I honor him and his family. Bless his memory.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May his memories be a blessing to all those who knew him. I have great memories of him kidding around with me like I was his little sister. Going to the San Diego Zoo with you and the kids when they were young. Spending holidays with you. You and Dave coming to my wedding. These are just some of the many memories I have. Sending you lots of love, now and always. Mindy

  5. I remember meeting David when my daughter and I first came to MHC. He was so welcoming to us as first-timers. Condolences from Jennifer, Malika and Milton Perry.
