David Frank Chilson, 57 of North Adams, MA, after battling cancer, died peacefully in his home on Saturday, December 15, 2018. He was born in North Adams, MA on January 10, 1961, son of the late Frank S. and Esther (Putnam) Chilson. He graduated from Drury High School. Dave was last employed by Mountain Home Landscape in Williamstown, MA.

Dave’s outgoing and engaging personality, humor, and smile were ever-present and forever on display. Always willing to drop everything to lend a helping hand to those in need, Dave’s true-heart, genuine nature, grit, and determination came through to everyone he met. Dave loved the outdoors and would spend as much of his time as possible hunting, fishing, and camping. Dave’s resourcefulness, strength, and never-say-quit attitude allowed him to tackle the most difficult of challenges, in work and life, to always get the job done.

Dave and Dede were best friends. Always together, their love and devotion guided them through the brightest and most challenging of times. This special bond will survive forever.

Survivors include his wife, Mrs. David (Deirdre) Chilson whom he married on July 25, 2003 and his two daughters - Jennifer L. Chilson, Jonathan Markarian, Halley and Max of Waltham, MA and Krista L. Chilson, Joseph Champney, Landon, Cullen, and Aiden of Clarksburg, MA. He also leaves his brothers - Arnold Clough and wife, Julie, Rutland, VT; Richard Clough and wife, Lynn, Edgewater, MD; mother-in-law, Carol A. Shea, North Adams, MA; sisters-in-law, Candida Rufo, Berkshire, MA; Carolyn Chilson, Buckland, MA; Deborah Shea and husband, Frank, North Adams, MA; Kathleen Bassett and husband David, Adams, MA; brother-in-law, Frederick Shea, and Karen Birch, North Adams, MA; former wife and mother of his daughters, Julie A. Chilson; and many loved aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was predeceased by his siblings, Frank Stanley Chilson; Edward F. Chilson; Nancy Jane Donnelly, Lawrence E. Chilson; and his father-in-law, Frederick D. Shea

The family is carrying out Dave’s wish that there be no services. In celebration and remembrance of Dave’s life, the family requests making a donation to Pop Cares or HospiceCare in the Berkshires in care of FLYNN & DAGNOLI-MONTAGNA HOME FOR FUNERALS CENTRAL CHAPEL, 74 Marshall St. North Adams, MA 01247.
