David James LeGrande was born on April 25, 1941 to the late Samuel Patrick LeGrande and Lula Cox LeGrande Groom in Richmond, VA.  He was a product of Richmond Public Schools.
David was a devoted husband and father.  This was reflected in his many acts of kindness extended to his family during his lifetime.  He married his wife, Helena LeGrande, on June 13, 1962.  A dedicated worker, David retired from Phillip Morris in 1994 after 28 years of faithful service.  This provided more time with his family.
David had a passion for fishing, golf, history and music.  As a young man he also loved to swim.  A consummate professional, David loved performing with the local seniors group “The Senior Connection” in his later years. 
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Samuel William LeGrande and four sisters, Dorothy Mae Greenway, Margaret Posby, Lillie Pearl Butler and Mildred Dyer.
He leaves to cherish his memory one daughter, Melanie Neal; two sons, David and Adrian LeGrande; four grandchildren, Ryan LeGrande (Angie), Corey LeGrande (Angie), Jayla Neal and Daniel Neal; one son-in-law, Jerrod Neal and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends. 
David will be missed by all that knew him.  He always had a smile on his face and was the kind of person that never met a stranger.  He was patient and easy going.  Our memories of him will remain with us always.
