David M. Senegar
David Martin “SUPA DAVE” Senegar, 63 years old, passed away on June 6, 2020, in his home state of Louisiana, after a short illness. Dave was the «life of the party» always cracking jokes and kept everyone laughing. Dave was born and raised in Lake Charles, Louisiana, on June 29, 1956. He left home in his teens and moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina, where he attended Fayetteville State. While there, he also worked at Fort Bragg, being one of the best «footwear beautification technicians» there was! Dave met and married Janet Woodson and moved to various places here in Virginia, but eventually settled in Goochland County. There weren›t too many parties Dave didn›t attend whether invited or not! LOL! It was many, many years after moving here to the County that most folks came to know him personally, especially those who live on the Maidens Road/Fairground Road corridor. Dave loved training his dog «Hutch,» Cajun cooking, jambalaya, break dancing, Zydeco music (Boo Zoo Chavis particularly) and he loved, loved, loved getting dressed up and keeping his clothes in pristine conditionno spots and no wrinklesand kept a spit shine on his dress shoes! Supa Dave will be missed!
