DJ Momme

            DJ Momme passed away on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 in San 

Francisco, the city that he made home for the past 25+ years.  DJ was born, David Momme, on July 31, 1965 in Norristown, Pennsylvania to the late Laura (Stemple) and David T. Momme.  He was raised by his mother, Laura Lear and stepfather, John Lear as the youngest boy in a family of six children. 

            He is survived by his wife Mary Gillette, five siblings: Loretta Momme, John Lear, Kim Lear, Bruce Lear and Daisy Lear, two nieces: Deanna and Allison, four nephews: Jacob, Jack, Dominic and Nathan, a large extended family in Pennsylvania, and a network of friends around the world.

            DJ lived his childhood years in Pennsylvania, but as a teen, he moved to Vallejo, California with his mother, Laura.  He was part of the Vallejo swim team and graduated from Vallejo high school in 1983.  In 1985, he joined the Air Force and became part of Flight 120 at Lackland, Air Force base in Texas.  He retired from the Air Force and settled in San Francisco. 

            DJ was gifted in math and pursued a career in accounting.  He held accounting positions at Pepsi, Charles Schwab, and finally found his dream job working in accounting for the Burning Man organization.  Burning Man became his passion and his co-workers became an extended family.

            DJ was an avid bowler and traveled frequently to bowl in tournaments around the world.  In the late 90's, DJ's bowling skills led him to Olympic try-outs in Reno, NV.  Although, he did not make the Olympic team, he was a sought after bowling partner, usually guaranteeing a victory for his team.  DJ bowled 300 games, won tournaments and loved everything about the sport. 

            DJ also loved softball and football.  DJ played softball every season for the past 25 years making a tremendous amount of close friends, which meant more to him than the game itself.  DJ was also a huge football fan and organized football pools for as long as anyone can remember.  In his last days, he could not bowl or play softball, but he was actively watching football and picking his teams for the week.

                DJ requested that no formal service be held, but asked his family and friends to remember him in life.  Wherever you may be on Sunday, December 10th at 2:00pm (PST), please raise a toast in his memory.

            If you would like to make a donation, please consider donating to the non-profit organization, Maitri Compassionate Care in San Francisco who helped DJ move comfortably into the next life.
