David Wylie Pasco passed away peacefully from natural causes at his home in Lincoln, Massachusetts
at the age of 68, on December the 21st, 2023. David was born on October 6th, 1955 in Cambridge,
Massachusetts to Catherine and Charles Pasco of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Although his beautiful story came to completion in Lincoln, Massachusetts, David was a product of Cambridge
through and through. He grew up in Cambridge surrounded by countless friends and family who loved,
supported, and nurtured him throughout his upbringing. Dave graduated from St Mary’s High School with the
Class of 73’. Upon moving out of Cambridge, David moved to the suburb of Concord, Massachusetts where he
would go on to graduate from Comeford Flight School at Hanscom Air Force Base. This was the beginning to
his long and illustrious career in aviation which became one of the most vital aspects of his unique and
wonderful story. He spent decades working at Hanscom as both a pilot and instructor in which he fostered
many beautiful friendships which lasted him a lifetime. Through Diamond Air L.G, the company he flew for, he
was able to meet the mother of his three children (Aliisa Gray) of Concord. He is survived by the three beautiful
children they shared, Chloe Elizabeth, Keagen Alexander, and Wyatt Tucker Pasco.
David Wylie Pasco was the absolutely beloved son of his parents Charles “Chick” Pasco and adoring mother
Catherine “Cathy” Pasco (McDevitt). David is survived by his brother Robert Pasco whom they shared
countless memories growing up on Worcester Street, as well as many others in Cambridge. David is also
survived by Robert’s children Bobby, Brian, and Brendan Pasco. As well as his loving cousin Carol Edwards of
Norwood and countless others.
David resided in and around Concord, Massachusetts for the last few decades of his life so that he could be in
close proximity to his children to support them both physically and emotionally to the absolute best of his
ability. David was a beloved father, brother, and son. David Pasco was a lover through and through. Apart from
aviation, he had an intense love of art, as well as traveling, and cuisine. He absolutely adored making people
laugh, cooking for those he loved, and spending time with those who meant most to him. He enjoyed
gardening and listening to music, and reminiscing about his past and the uncountable stories that arose from
his upbringing in Cambridge and beyond. He never failed to attend his children's hockey games and support
them constantly in whichever way he possibly could. He adored his parents, his brother, his nephews, his
coworkers, his friends, and his loving children. David leaves a legacy of love, laughter, and appreciation for
everything this world had to offer.
The graveside service will be held at The Cambridge Cemetery at 11:00 AM on Monday, January the 8th.
He will be buried alongside his loving mother and father.
