For the readers who do not know about David Bird; he is actually the Wall Street Journal reporter who had gone missing more than a year ago. His remains have recently been found in the Passaic River on Wednesday.
David disappeared from his house in January 2014 after going for a walk. A substantial number of rescue officers and volunteers tried their best to search for David but failed miserably. The efforts of the volunteers also included the launch of a website to find David.
Bird was a native of Hamilton and a graduate from Rider University. He worked in a couple of newspapers including the likes of The Times of Trenton. After his stints with such newspapers, he started working as a reputed energy reporter for The Wall Street Journal. After his death, his family is survived by his wife Nancy and his children Alexander and Natasha.
As recollected by David’s friends, he was energy full all the time. He used to take part in 5K runs and make essential efforts to raise funds on behalf of the NJ Sharing Network after a liver transplant that happened over a decade ago. He loved traveling and other adventure sports. Moreover, David was also a Boy Scout leader for his Local Long Hill Troop.
His funeral ceremony has been planned and it is scheduled from 4pm to 8pm on March 25 at the Church of St. Vincent de Paul, 249 Bebout Ave, and Stirling. The funeral mass will take place from 11am the next day. You can visit the website of Valley Memorial Home for more info about the same. The website is www.valleymemorialfuneralhome.net.
