David Pease (1950-2022)
David Keith Pease, owner of Liberty Electric of San Mateo, Inc., and Governor of the San Mateo Chapter, NECA, passed away on February 23, 2022 at the age of 71.
Mr. Pease graduated from San Metro Union High School in 1968, entered the apprenticeship and began his lifelong career in the electrical industry. He worked his way up at several companies, and spent 14 years at Rosendin Electric before becoming owner of Liberty Electric in San Mateo.
Mr. Pease was an excellent provider for his family, which was his greatest passion. He was a loving husband to Marie, a father to daughters Amy, Melissa, and Lauren, and a grandfather to six grandsons, who lovingly called him “Pappa D.” He was respected by many for his great business ethic, strong spiring, and was always guided by his kind, generous, larger-than-life sense of humor.
NECA honors David Pease, and offers condolences and well wishes to his family.
