David Zurbuch, Obituary


David L. Zurbuch (56), of Chapel Hill, NC passed away on January 22, 2024. Born on May 30, 1967 in Fort Wayne, IN to James Zurbuch and Barbara Hollowell.

Dave was a loving and dedicated husband and father as well as the proud owner and founder of Zurbuch Construction in Chapel Hill.

He is survived by his wife of over 30 years, Amy Knight and their five children Jacob Hartley (26), Erica Jane (24), Eliza Kate (21), Isaac Paxton (17), Liam Detrick (11), his mother, Barbara Hollowell, and siblings, Kari Jenkins, Dan Zurbuch, Jennifer Cartwright, Andy Zurbuch, and Chris Zurbuch. He is preceded in death by his father, James Zurbuch and his twin sister Lisa D. Zurbuch.

After graduating from Purdue University with a degree in engineering, Amy and Dave worked briefly in Columbus, IN before relocating to beautiful Chapel Hill after touring the East Coast looking for a forever home and perfect place to raise their future family.

Dave was an eternal optimist, the hardest worker and quiet problem solver. He was dedicated to fitness and health. By far his greatest joy was spending time with his family, all the moments big and small.

Dave’s family will host a service to honor Dave on Saturday, January 27, 2024 at 11:00am. The service will take place in The Chancellors Ballroom at The Carolina Inn, 211 Pittsboro St. Chapel Hill, NC 27516.
