DAVID EDWARD MILAM age 41, cherished son of Andrew and Rebecca (nee Geszler) Peko; survived by his Maternal Aunt, Gerianne Geszler, Maternal Grandparents Marie and William Geszler (deceased), Paternal Grandparents Elizabeth and Matyas Peko, countless cousins on both sides of the family, and his best friend Agnes Klymiuk, along with his adoring cat Mr. Kittums and all of his other friends.
David graduated from West Geauga High School and went on to Western Reserve Culinary School and became a Chef. He was the owner of Moca Coffee Shop and Café where he and his mother served up many culinary delights. David enjoyed cooking, shopping, and everything else to do with food. He loved his Playstation, listening to a good rainstorm, and growing a vegetable garden. David loved all animals and made a home for them in his yard, especially the bunnies that came by. What gave him the most enjoyment was his weekly outings with his mother, cooking and trying different foods. David was a gentle and sensitive man who led a simple life, he had a huge heart and an absolute unconditional love for the people he cared about. David loved to help others and he tried his best to do at least one good deed a day. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him and will always and forever be an overwhelming presence in our hearts.
