Plan Ahead

David A. Quadrini, Sr.

October 8, 1939 –
 August 27, 2022


David A. Quadrini, Sr. (October 8, 1939 – August 27, 2022) 

David A. Quadrini, Sr. died Saturday, August 27. Born in Rochester, New York, as the third of six children of Pierina and Attilio Quadrini, who had immigrated from Italy  in 1931. David’s strong Catholic faith guided his life from an early age until his last breath.

David married Rosemary (Falbo) in 1964 in Utica, New York. Family and faith were paramount to them. They raised four children and were blessed with seven grandchildren. He loved being a father, an uncle, and an active granddad. Rosemary and David were founding members of All Saints Catholic Church, where he was a long-time member and past President of the All Saints Men’s Club. David volunteered on many committees and programs at All Saints; especially for the Building Committee when it came time for the church to design and build their current sanctuary and Fellowship Hall.

In 1957, David graduated high school from The Aquinas Institute of Rochester where he not only played varsity football, but also played saxophone in the band during halftime.  David joined the United States Marine Corps and trained in Aviation Electronics Navigation (ATN). His commanding officer saw David’s potential and arranged for him to continue his studies at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) where he graduated with Mechanical and Electric Engineering degrees.

David and four fellow scientists from Xerox started Triaid Sciences, one of the first environmental-solutions companies focusing on Air, Water, and Land. They developed technologies to fix environmental degradation, which led to David speaking in New York City at the inaugural Earth Day in 1970.

In 1976 David moved his wife and children to Texas to design a system to remove environmental toxins from water destined for the Trinity River.  For over 20 years with Texas Instruments, David managed design and construction of wafer-fab plants around the world and became Corporate Fire Marshal supporting world-wide manufacturing plants.  In the mid 80’s David guided T.I. in developing cogeneration, a revolutionary system that produces electricity from the heat generated from chip production.  Cogeneration led to his 2022 patent to produce power from desalinating water. David was an independent consultant for years, serving as Chairman for both the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA318), and with the City of Dallas Fire Department Code Committee.

His parents and brother, Art, and goddaughter, Carolyn preceded him in death. His wife Rosemary survives him along with four children: Anne (Charlie) Rogers, David Jr., Karen (Evan) Powell, and Susan (Jeffrey) Roddy; seven grandchildren: Thomas and Brian (Anne) Rogers, Samuel (Karen) Powell, and Hannah (Juan), Isabella, Rosemary and Michael (Susan) Roddy; and brother Richard, sister Mary DeCiantis, and sister-in-law Pat Quadrini.

A celebration of his life will be held on Wednesday, September 7, 2022 at All Saints Catholic Church

in Dallas, Texas at 11:00 A.M. Located at 5231 Meadowcreek Drive, Dallas, Texas 75248.

Memorial donations may be sent to the North Texas Food Bank

    David was such a nice man. I am happy I knew him my entire life. I still remember when he returned home from Japan after serving in the Marines.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
