David C. Sterling passed away on November 20, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer. Dave was passionate about everything he did and gave so much of himself to others, especially his family. Dave was born on June 12, 1940 in Schenectady, NY and grew up in Pittsfield, MA. He graduated from Bryant University with a degree in business and then joined The Hartford after serving two years with the U.S. Army in the Panama Canal Zone. After 42 years, he retired from The Hartford as assistant vice president and senior risk manager. In 2013, Dave received the honor of induction into the Risk Management Hall of Fame for his contributions to his profession. Dave was a proud Granby resident for over 40 years. He coached almost every sport, and, among many other community volunteer posts, served as President of Granby Little League. Dave was an avid archer who enjoyed roving with his traditional longbow, hiking, skiing, wilderness canoe camping and fly-fishing. Dave was also a collector, who assembled a remarkable library of archery books and artifacts. Dave leaves behind his loving wife of 48 years, Lynne, daughter Suzanne and son Jon and his wife Kelly, a brother Kenneth Sterling and his wife Mary, and two grandchildren, Chase and Kathleen, who will all miss him dearly. His family will receive friends on Friday, November 25 from 4 PM to 7 PM at the Hayes Huling & Carmon Funeral Home, 364 Salmon Brook St, Granby. Burial in Granby Cemetery will be private. In lieu of flowers please make memorial donations to the Granby Ambulance Association, PO Box 617, Granby, CT 06035 or the CT Humane Society, 701 Russell Rd Newington, CT 06111.
