David Sauther, 58, of Malone, N.Y., passed away on April 23, 2022, at the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, Vermont, surrounded by his loving family.

David was a 1981 Graduate of Franklin Academy in Malone, worked at Super Duper Supermarket and Yando’s Big M before becoming ill, at which time he focused on helping others through his volunteer work. He was a longtime Scouter with Pack 61, where he received the District Award of Merit, was a Third Degree Member of the Knights of Columbus, worked as a volunteer at K of C Bingo, was Vice President and a long time volunteer with Emmaus Soup Kitchen, active in Malone Relay for Life, volunteered at Good Samaritan Food Pantry, was a member and Robert J. Uplinger Distinguished Service Award winner with the Malone Lions Club, volunteered at CYO Basketball for many years, and was an Altar Server at Notre Dame Church. For many years, he enjoyed meeting and greeting people at Yando’s Parking Area during the Franklin County Fair. When he was a young paperboy, David became one of the biggest New York Yankee’s Fans around, with #15 Thurman Munson and #2 Derek Jeter being his absolute favorites. He lived for watching the games on TV and especially at the stadium. He valued time with his friends and family, in particular during the holidays, and enjoyed his annual trips to visit friends in Florida, and his special memory of going to Lourdes, France, with his brother Dean. He is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Dean and Shelley Sauther of Malone, and four sisters; Debbie King (Tim) of North Carolina, Diane O’Donnell of Wilmington, North Carolina, Denise Boyer (Michael) of Malone and Dawn Manchester (Kevin) of Peru, N.Y., as well as many, many nieces, nephews and cousins.
