David Joseph Tauriello

David J. Tauriello passed away unexpectedly Thursday, March 17, 2022. He was born on September 11, 1964 in Buffalo, New York. David followed his brothers to Texas when he was 17 for employment opportunities. It was while working that first year that David met his future in-laws, Bill and Adina Norris. They were the reason David later met his future wife, Deanna, and married in 1996. They had two children, Danielle and Dana. Together the family enjoyed many adventures including camping, fishing and hiking. They especially enjoyed visiting many of America’s most beautiful zoos. These adventures culminated in a trip-of-a-lifetime to Italy.

Survived by many nieces and nephews Charlie Tauriello, Grace Tauriello, Daniel Baetzhold, Connor Baetzhold, Jessica Tauriello, Anna Baetzhold, Gena Naquin, Justin Naquin, Michael Naquin, Kyle Naquin, Taylor Gray and 2 great nieces.A service honoring David will be held on Wednesday, March 23rd at Crowder Funeral Home at 111 E. Medical Center Blvd, Webster TX 7759. Visitation will be from 5-7 and service will follow at 7pm.

In lieu of flowers the family is asking for donations to the American Heart Association in David’s name.



  1. There are no words to express the deep loss our family is experiencing with the passing of my brother, David. He had the biggest heart and his kindness had no limits. He was fiercely loyal to his family and was so proud of Dana and Danielle. Deedee was the best thing that ever happened to him. He was the light of my mother’s eye and she adored him. He would do anything for her. My father couldn’t take enough trips to Texas to spend time with David and the “boys.” It brings me peace knowing they are together although my heart has yet another hole. My heart will never heal but David has given me, and many others, so many wonderful memories to keep his indomitable spirit alive. He would love for us to celebrate his life, to tell stories of good times together and to be kind to one another. The world was a better place with David in it. I will miss him dearly and am so grateful he was my big brother and my friend.

  16. As Debbie’s “work family”, we know how important her family is to her and how deeply she respected and loved her brother. She is above all kind and surely much of that comes from the love and support of her family—knowing Deb, her brother David must have been equally as wonderful. We wish her, David’s wife, David’s daughters and their circle of family and friends our deepest sympathies on this terrible loss.

  25. I worked with David for several years at the Clean Harbors Deer Park facility, his office was two doors down from mine, he always had a smile, always said hi in the morning, and never had a bad word to say about anyone. So, unfortunately, the people in my building will miss him, his sudden loss was very sad to all of us, may God be with him.
