David J. Chmura

January 26, 1950 ~ September 5, 2020 (age 70)


DOYLESTOWN – David J. Chmura, age 70, passed away unexpectedly on September 5, 2020.  Dave was born on January 26, 1950 in Cleveland, OH to Edward F. Sr. and Johanna (Nimmrich) Chmura. He then grew up in North Royalton next door to the love of his life and wife of 48 years, Theresa (Glodich) Chmura.  Together they created a wonderful life together with their three children.  Dave worked for Ohio Packaging Corp. as a truck driver, which he loved doing, until his retirement in 2000.  A member of Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, he never met a stranger and loved talking to everyone.  If anyone ever needed anything, they could count on Dave.  His passions were his family and his 69 Ford Mustang that he restored with his son in-law.

Chmura Sr; his father and mother-in-law, John and Emily Glodich; he is survived by his wife, Theresa; son, Michael; daughters, Catherine (Ryan) Miller, Deborah (Gene) Morris; grandchildren, Nate Miller, Kevin (Becky) Morris; great grandson, Bryson Morris; mother, Johanna Chmura; brother, Edward F.
