Maynard – Mr. David T. Loughlin, of Maynard, formerly of Waltham, died Sunday, June 13, 2021 at Emerson Hospital in Concord. He was 57.
David was born and raised in Waltham, a son of the late Joseph F., Jr. and Barbara J. (Brown) Loughlin. He was a 1981 graduate of Waltham High School where he played football, basketball and baseball. After that he attended the University of New Hampshire. Dave was a finish carpenter whose talent earned him a lifetime of loyal customers. He was well known in the trades for his precision and attention to detail.
One of his best days came when he married the love of his life, Cynthia Moran. The pair made Hudson their home before moving to Maynard in 1992 where they would raise their two boys, Shaun and Zachary.
Dave loved being a member of the Maynard community; he had been a proud coach for the town's high school football program and when his sons were young he also coached their football and baseball teams. He was also a member of the Maynard Elks Club and the Maynard Rod and Gun Club.
Dave was an avid sports fan and in his later years played softball for years with the Waltham Men's League at Cornelia Warren Field. He could always make fast friends with his warm and welcoming demeanor and genuinely kind and compassionate personality. He was a 'larger than life' guy—always loved being outdoors, laughing and talking with friends and neighbors, and above all loved being with his wife and children.
In addition to his beloved wife, Cynthia A. (Moran), David leaves his children, Shaun D. Loughlin (Allison Ercolano) of Stow, and Zachary B. Loughlin of Maynard; his siblings, Kathleen Loughlin (Phil Langelier) of Wakefield, Judy Fligg (late Dennis) of Mashpee, John Loughlin (Linda) of Delray Beach, Florida, Jane Bella of Marlton, New Jersey, and Jeannie Horn (Rik) of Franklin, Ohio; his brothers and sisters-in-law, Francis Moran (Susan) of Marlborough, Patricia Moran of Burlington, and JoAnn Moran of New Bedford; and many nieces, nephews, and their families.
Dave was also the brother-in-law of the late Julie Moran.
