Obituary for David Edwin Ryalls

April 21, 2018
Warminster, Pennsylvania


David Edwin Ryalls of Warminster, Pennsylvania, was taken home by the Lord on April 21st, 2018, after a sixteen month struggle with Myelodyplastic Syndrome. Born and raised in the Tacony section of Philadelphia, Dave was the youngest son of Ruth and Elmer Ryalls and brother to oldest sister Ruth Dietrick and sibling Elmer "Bill" Ryalls.

Dave married Barbara Spencer, his wife of 42 years, and together raised two children, Davey and Diane. Dave supported his family with his knowledge of electronics and creating a copy machine service business, Electrostatic, with Barbara. Later on in their marriage, he reinforced his family's stability serving as an Electronics Inspector for several firms in the region, most notably Tactical Technologies.

Dave enjoyed many weekend adventures with Barbara and their children as they grew. Many of their summers at the Jersey seaside were made memorable on the beaches of Cape May and Ocean City, surrounded with both Dave and Barb's parents, brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews.

After their daughter's marriage to Scott Crammer, Memom and Pop enjoyed happy times watching their grandchildren Bennett and Dylan grow into mature young men. They treasured time spent at Long Beach Island with Scott's parents, By and Nancy Crammer and their family, relaxing in the warm ocean breeze. Furthermore, when they were able to find the time between their active and demanding schedules, they traveled and enjoyed fascinating getaways and quality time spent just being together.

After Barbara's passing, Dave continued on, raising his son and they became best friends with long talks, long walks, and adventurous excursions.

The family is thankful for the care Dave received from the professional staff at Alliance Cancer Specialists, Doylestown Hospital, and Luther Woods.

He is survived, in heart and memory, by his wonderful family and the many good souls whose lives he touched in a positive way.

Relatives and friends are invited to share in Dave's celebration on Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018, at 10:00am, at the Craft Givnish Funeral Home, 1801 Old York Road, Abington, PA 19001, where a service will be held at 11:30am.
