David "Dave" J. Lariviere, 41, of Templeton, died peacefully Friday, May 18, 2018 next to his wife and son after a courageous battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) (Lou Gehrig's Disease).
Born in Leominster on December 3, 1976, he was the son of the late Blair J. Lariviere and Susan H. (Byron) Lariviere.
Dave graduated from Gardner High School with the Class of 1994. He furthered his education receiving his Associates Degree in Liberal Arts from Mount Wachusett Community College with the Class of 1996, and attended Clark University where he received his Coding Certificate in 2005.
He was employed by Heywood Hospital as the Director of Medical Records for the last eight years. Previously he owned Crystal Clear Coding, Inc. of Nashua, NH. He was a member of the Acadien Social Club.
He was an avid sports fan but especially loved the Boston Bruins and football. He loved his Crossfit family and his annual golf trips to Myrtle Beach with his friends. Dave's lifelong dream of going to Walt Disney World came true in 2016. Dave's smile could brighten a room and charmed everyone that he encountered. But his most beloved memories were spending family time with his wife Carolyn and son Connor.
Besides his mother Susan, Dave leaves his wife Carolyn (Mucha) Lariviere; his 2-month-old son Connor D. Lariviere of Templeton; one sister Cristie A.
