Obituary for David Sayles Behan

Hudson Falls

David Sayles Behan passed away at his home on Sunday, July 17th, 2022, to be reunited with his loving
wife Margie at long last.

Born on April 23, 1942, David was the son of the late Sayles and Anna (Flynn) Behan.

David and Margie were married in 1962 and went on to spend 48 happy years together. Margie passed
away in February of 2011, and David missed her every day for the rest of his life.

David worked hard his whole life; on dairy farms and at gas stations in his younger years. He then
worked for Union Camp and later retired from the Town of Fort Edward Highway Department.

His passions included adventures with his wife on their motorcycle when they were young, attending
stock car races and fishing. He could often be found at a local diner having coffee and chewing the fat
with his friends. David was a loving, generous husband and father, friend and neighbor and was always
ready and willing to lend a hand to those who needed it.

In addition to his parents, David is predeceased by his loving wife Margaret Behan.

He is survived by his daughter Cynthia Brennan and her husband, Charles of Glens Falls, his grandson
Christian Flexon of Hudson Falls, a sister Mary Behan of Hudson Falls, brother Robert Behan of Hudson
