There are condolences waiting approval on DAVID's Tribute wall

David Gregory Amador, 58, went to be with his Lord and Savior and many beloved relatives on November 25, 2018. He was born in Houston, Texas on March 9, 1960, at Hermann Hospital to David Lee and Kathleen McDonald Amador. He was a man of deep and abundant faith and singular intellect.

Greg leaves three amazing children, son Aaron Amador of Houston, and daughters Ashley Sokulski and her husband Nicolai of Houston, and Christy Dutcher and her husband Tony of Austin, as well as three wonderful grandchildren - James, Ryan, and Saoirse. He is also survived by his mother, Kathleen, his sister, Juliann Bradley and her husband James of San Antonio, uncle Richard and aunt Norma Quesada of Houston, and a multitude of nieces, cousins and family. He is predeceased by his father, David, and four loving grandparents - Richard and Tecla McDonald and Valentine and Mary Yochum. He also leaves behind his faithful dog Luke, the last in a long line of pets he loved and cared for.

Greg spent his early childhood in San Antonio, and the family moved back to Houston when he was nine years old. In Houston, Greg attended Walnut Bend Elementary and St. Thomas High School. He graduated from Dwight D. Eisenhower High School in 1978 where he excelled in Math and Science. He also attended Texas A&M University and the University of Houston as an engineering student and graduated from UH in 1983 where he was a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon.

Beginning in 1984, Greg served his country in the United States Navy as a nuclear engineer and graduate of numerous advanced nuclear training programs including the Naval Nuclear Power Training Unit, working primarily on submarines. He and his family lived in many locations throughout the country, finally returning home to Houston at the end of his service where he worked for AT&T as well as in other technical roles.

Greg was an avid lover of both music and sports. He particularly loved weight lifting, where he set the Texas 19-and-under bench press record, and racing, where he spent several years as a dirt track racer. He was incredibly out going and gregarious and will be greatly missed by his loved ones.
