Dave was born in the Bronx and grew up in the Hudson Valley of NY. He is a 1986 graduate of Marist College in
Poughkeepsie, NY where he rowed Division 1 crew for the Red Foxes. Dave relocated to Boston shortly after he
graduated to follow his girlfriend, Ivy O’Keefe, who grew up in Everett. Ivy had recently graduated from Vassar
College, also located in Poughkeepsie. Dave and Ivy have been happily married for the past 38 years and have lived
in Middleton for the past 22 years. Ivy went on to receive her law degree from Suffolk University Law School and has
been a member of the Massachusetts Bar since 1992. Their three children, David, Darcy and Dayna, all graduated
from Masconomet Regional High School and went on to further their educations, graduating with honors from
Hofstra University, Endicott College and Marist College respectively.

Dave remains a diehard Yankees fan but adopted all the other Boston sports teams over time, particularly his
beloved Bruins and Patriots. He and his family have been going to the island of Aruba for the past 35 years,
vacationing at their timeshare every April for two weeks at the Costal Linda Beach Resort located on the world-
famous Eagle Beach.

Dave is the President of the David W. Eidle Jr Memorial Scholarship Fund. The Fund was established by Dave and Ivy
to keep their son David’s memory alive, who passed away unexpectedly last July, by awarding annual college
scholarships in his name to local deserving scholar/athletes who exemplify the qualities and characteristics that
David lived his life by and the cornerstones of his education and professional career as a CPA.
