David James Riedel, 52, of Robbinsville, NJ passed away on February 19 2018 at his home. David was born in Blue Island, IL and later grew up in Flanders, NJ. He loved to be on the move and was always active. David enjoyed parties, dancing, listening to 50's and 60's music, bowling, and watching his TV shows while enjoying a bowl of popcorn. But most of all he enjoyed long car rides in search of fast food restaurants and ice cream establishments. He eagerly participated at Eden Autism Services and volunteered his time passing out newspaper fliers and delivering meals on wheels. His greatest joy in life was spending time with and around his family.
David is survived by his parents, David Philip Riedel and Harriet (Burdahl) Riedel; three brothers, Douglas Riedel and wife Deena, Mark Riedel, and Matthew Riedel and wife Valerie; nephew, Eli Riedel; grandmother, Eleanore Riedel; uncles, James Riedel, Thomas Riedel and wife Joyce, Phillip Burdahl and wife Anna; aunts, Marianne Epstein and husband Shelley, and Lillian McNeil and husband Chester; and by many other loving family members and friends.
