David Decambra Leite III, 57, of Windsor, died peacefully at home on Jan. 24, 2010, after a courageous battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

He was born Sept. 9, 1952, in Oakland, Calif., to David D. Leite Jr. and Charlene (Hagan) Leite. He graduated from Amador Valley Joint Union High School in Pleasanton, Calif., in 1970. He studied administration of justice at Ohlone Junior College and graduated from the police academy at San Jose City College.

Mr. Leite was a resident of the San Francisco Bay area for 49 years, where he married Debbie Gordillo, with whom he had two daughters. In 2001 he married Rebecca Bosley and moved to Windsor, Colo., where they owned The UPS Store until 2005. He began his career as a police officer in Santa Clara, Calif., and continued in law enforcement for 36 years as a corporate loss prevention manager for Safeway, Cost Plus World Market, Sears, Ultimate Electronics and, most recently, Marshalls.

David earned his pilot's license at the age of 19. He coached little league baseball and girls gymnastics, for which he was an internationally rated competition judge. He was a founding member of The Gathering at Windsor Presbyterian Church.

He is survived by his mother, Charlene Leite; wife, Rebecca Leite; daughters, Jamie Neves and Lindsey Presley; two granddaughters; former wife, Debbie Gordillo; and brothers, Darold Leite, Dennis Leite and Daniel Leite.

He was preceded in death by his father, David D. Leite Jr.
