David Cowell

May 31, 2021



Passed away peacefully on May 31, 2021 at the age of 90. Born outside of London England, he is survived by his loving wife who is 95 years young, a son and two grandchildren who will miss him dearly.

After moving to Rochester from England, to take a fantastic position with General Dynamics he also worked at Sybron Ritter after GD left Rochester.  When Ritter also departed he found a new home at Kodak where he eventually retired from. 

The holder of several US Patents, he prided himself on his beloved career as an electrical engineer. Although he could have moved his family to some really nice locations as his firms left Rochester, he decided to stay in the Monroe County area which had been so good to he and his family.

Services and interment will be private.

Sending our condolences and very fond memories of "Uncle Dave", and years of shared Thanksgiving Day celebrations.  We loved how Dave would enter the house and light up the day for our father, with many hours of talking shop and sports cars!  Much love to your family from ours, Sincerely the Morris Family
