David Andrew Dailer, fondly known as Dubie, left this world on December 30, 2023, at the age of 74. Born on June 18, 1949, in Wheeling, WV, Dubie lived a life filled with laughter, adventure, and an unwavering love for his family and football.
Dubie’s professional journey took him to Florida in 1978 as an Engineer with Florida Power and Light. He had an uncanny ability to light up a room, both figuratively and literally, with his brilliant mind and infectious sense of humor.
When he wasn’t busy conquering the engineering world, Dubie indulged in his passions. Whether it was savoring a cold beer, exploring new destinations, or cheering on his beloved Notre Dame Fighting Irish, he approached life with gusto. One of his greatest joys was spending weekends with his football-loving nephews, creating memories that will be cherished forever.
Dubie’s faith played a vital role in his life, his faith foundation began at Corpus Christi Parish School in Warwood, WV and he was a proud member of St. Ignatius of Antioch Roman Catholic Church in Tarpon Springs, FL.
Dubie is preceded in death by his parents, Harry and Gertrude (Kimmins) Dailer, as well as his first wife, Patsy (Tarr) Dailer, whom he lovingly cared for.
He leaves behind a loving and devoted wife of twelve years, Nancy (Harvey) Yaeger-Dailer, who brought immense joy and happiness to his life.
He will be forever remembered by his stepsons Benjamin (Jami) Yaeger and Cory (Melissa) Yaeger, and his step-grandson, Liam. Dubie’s siblings, Tom (Peggy) Dailer, Susanne Gedden, and Dottie Hummel, will carry his memory in their hearts.
Dubie’s nieces and nephews, Heather (Ron) Newborn, Shannon (Brad) Stalhut, T. Jay (Angel) Dailer, Kerry (Kathy) Dailer, David Dailer, Suzie Dailer, along with his great-nieces and nephews, Mason, Tyler, Allie, Maggie, and Sydney, were blessed to have him as Unk. His love and guidance will forever shape their lives.
Services to honor Dubie’s life will be held at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 154 Kruger Street, Wheeling, WV. Visitation will take place on Tuesday, January 2, 2023, from 12:00pm until the Vigil and Eulogy at 4:00pm.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Corpus Christi Parish in Warwood on Wednesday, January 3, 2023, at 12:30pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to Dubie’s home school and parish, Corpus Christi, can be made by clicking the link above.
Dubie’s memory will live on through the countless lives he touched. Please share memories and condolences with the family on this page.

What a wonderful man!!! Before I ever met Dubie I watched him from afar, escorting his handicapped wife into Molly Goodhead’s. Several years later he moved across the street from me. Dubie was always up for a round of golf and a cold one. Rest in Peace dear man. 💋

Unk was one of a kind! I’m not his nephew, but he made me feel like I was! I thoroughly enjoyed our guys tailgating football trips with him. He was always good for a laugh, with a dash of sincere concern for you as an individual. He wanted to make sure you were doing OK. Love ya Unk! Rest easy my friend! Take care of Nat for me!

Dubie loved and lived life each and every day. Anyone who encountered Dubie and Nanci knew they were “living the dream”. Nanci, this will be tough, but “you got this”. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the entire family. Heaven truly got an Angel.😇❤️

I don’t believe I ever met a finer man than Dubie. He had an infectious smile I’ll never forget. Janet’s and my heart go out to Nanci and Dubue’s combined families. Heaven just received one heck of a Guy.
