Albert David Brimm (David)
Albert David Brimm (David), 71, of North East, MD, passed away on March 29, 2016, after a brave battle with cancer.
David was born in Henderson, KY, to the late Albert Brimm and the late Catherine Brimm Amonett. He grew up in Pascagoula, MS, and graduated from St. Bernard College in Cullman, AL.
From 1966-69, David taught high school English at Colegio San Antonio Abad, Humacao, Puerto Rico. He fell in love at first sight with Mary Elaine Puro (Elaine) of North East, MD, who was also an English teacher in Humacao, and they were married in 1968.
The couple returned to the mainland in 1969 and David found employment with the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services, to which he devoted 37 years until his retirement in 2006. He cared deeply about the children and families whom he served throughout his career.
David is survived by his wife Elaine; his children Sean Brimm of North East, Christine Brimm Hurschman of Elkton, and Karen Brimm of Chester, VA; and his grandchildren Devynn Whitesell of Chester, VA, and Robert Hurschman of Elkton.
In accordance with David’s wishes, burial will be private.
