Merrimac, MA - David B. Cahill of Merrimac, Mass., aged 67, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by the love of his family and friends following a long and courageous battle against Lewy Body Disease.

He retired from Boston Acoustics as the Director of Transducer Engineering after a long career in the consumer audio electronics industry.

David was an avid musician and often played at local venues with his friends Skip Parks and Curt Harriott among many others. He loved science and had a great interest in astrophysics and quantum mechanics. He also loved the outdoors, hiking the White Mountains, skiing, swimming, and kayaking.

He leaves behind his wife of 47 years, Leslie (Dennison) Cahill of Merrimac; his daughter, of whom he was so proud, Meghan Cahill of Malden, Mass.; his sisters, Eileen Gearin and husband Joseph of Rye, N.H., and Sharon Gogan of Ipswich, Mass., along with life long friend, James Curry of Amesbury, Mass., and numerous, much loved, nieces, and nephews.
