David Lee Carriere of Louise died May 18, 2014 at the age of 63. He was born August 29, 1950 in Galveston. He served in the National Guard as a M/Sgt during the Viet Nam War, was a rice farmer and a Catholic.
He was fondly known as "Big Dave" and was everyone's favorite "good times fella." He was always the life of the party, most would say that he invented it. It certainly brought him great joy to make others smile. His greatest accomplishment was to be giving, even if he didn't have it to give, and making people laugh.
He is survived by his children Ginger McClure Jones, Courtney Amanda Orsak and husband Shane, Jacob Ross Hogan and wife Angela, Louis Amos Carriere II, Evelyn Claire Carriere, Murphy Carriere; brother Larry Carriere; step-sons Jonathan Robert Willard Stuckey, Samuel Austin Stuckey; and seven grandchildren.
The Memorial Service will be held 11:00 am Saturday, May 31, 2014, at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church with Rev. Albert Yankey officiating. Private inurnment service will be handled under direction of Triska Funeral Home.
Following the committal service, a party in the tradition of Big Dave will be held at The Wild Hibiscus in El Campo.
