David Thomas Kneipp

December 3, 1985 ~ September 12, 2023 (age 37) 37 Years Old


David Thomas Kneipp, affectionately known as Dave to his family and friends, passed away on September 12, 2023 in Pemberton Township. Born on December 3, 1985 in Perth Amboy, Dave's life was marked by his enduring love for his family, his hardworking nature, his passion for sports and life's simple pleasures.

Dave is survived by his parents, Kathleen and stepfather Brian Murphy of Keansburg; his father, David Byrne; his sisters, Kimberly Ambrose (Lawrence Hall), Theresa Baldasare, and Tonya Zampino (Anthony); his brothers, Walter, Michael, and Justin Byrne; his nieces and nephews, Briar Ambrose, Anthony Zampino Jr., James Baldasare, Nya Hall, and Anastasia Zampino. Dave also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins, and extended family members who will miss him dearly.

Dave worked for Paint Tech Designs LLC, in Neptune. He was not just a colleague, but  considered family by every one at Paint Tech.

A true sports enthusiast, Dave cheered passionately for the Cowboys and the Mets, sharing countless memorable moments with fellow fans. His love of the racetrack led him to Monmouth Park Race Track, where he found joy in the excitement of horse racing. Dave was a great handyman, loved building things, and had a knack for fixing almost anything. His love for Jamaican food, concerts, and music showcased his appreciation for diverse cultures. Fishing was another of Dave's favorite pastimes, offering him a peaceful respite from his busy life. He also had an affinity for sneaker collecting, which reflected his unique sense of style and personality.

 Yet, despite his many hobbies and interests, Dave's greatest joy was found in the company of his family. The time he spent with them was precious, and those moments are now cherished memories.

His memory will continue to live on in our hearts, reminding us to embrace life’s passions and the importance of treasuring the bonds we share with those we hold dear. He will be deeply missed.
