Obituary

David A. Genn, MD, a resident of Beacon, passed away suddenly at New York-Presbyterian / Hudson Valley Hospital in Cortlandt Manor on Wednesday, April 21, 2021. He was 56 years old.

Born on September 9, 1964, Dave was the son of Brenda (Slepp) Genn and the late Cole Genn. Dave was the husband of Coleen Moore Genn. Dave was a graduate of Boston University’s College of Medicine Class of 1988. Dave completed his internship and residency at Montefiore Medical Center and he completed his Gastroenterology fellowship at New York Medical College at Westchester Medical Center. Thereafter, Doctor Genn spent his entire 20-year career doing what he loved with the people and the patients that he loved.

Doctor Genn was incredibly proud and honored to be affiliated with Hudson Valley Hospital and to be a GI Partner at Mid-Hudson Gastroenterology, LLP. In 2013, Doctor Genn became disabled and was unable to actively practice medicine. Despite being physically unable to practice, Doctor Genn remained educated, current and hopeful that one day he would again be able to serve others via his profession.

Dave’s life was hallmarked by his honesty, humility, humbleness and above all else his tremendous kindness and generosity. Dave had a wonderful sense of humor and he enjoyed music with The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd and Eric Clapton being some of his favorites. Dave was the household’s unofficial nightly Jeopardy! Champion, as he often answered the clues before they were read. Dave loved art, traveling and reading. Above all else, Dave enjoyed and was truly thankful for all the love and support that he received from all of his friends and family during the nearly decade long struggle he endured while fighting heroically with numerous complicated medical issues.
Dave and his family would like to thank the physicians, nurses and all of the staff who took care of him at New York-Presbyterian / Hudson Valley Hospital and Emerald Peak Rehabilitation Center.

Dave is survived by his mother Brenda (Slepp) Genn of Hewlett, NY; his wife, Coleen Moore Genn of Beacon; his step-son Brenden Moore of Chicago, IL; his sister, Shari Shapiro and her husband David of Lawrence, NY; his nephews and nieces, Jacob Decter, Ashely Prawer, Gabby Decter, Emma Strulowitz, Craig Shapiro, Jeremy Shapiro, Evan Shapiro, and Kerri Wasserman. He is also survived by several aunts, uncles, cousins, great-nephews, and great-nieces.

Calling hours will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 25 at the McHoul Funeral Home of Fishkill, Inc., 1089 Main Street, Fishkill, NY. A funeral service will begin at 12 p.m. on Monday, April 26 at the funeral home, followed by burial at St. Joachim Cemetery, 325 Washington Avenue, Beacon, NY. PLEASE NOTE: In compliance with NYS guidelines, social distancing and face masks will be required and capacity may be limited. All attendees should be prepared for potential extended waiting periods.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Heather Abbott Foundation which provides services to amputees www.heatherabbottfoundation.org.

Dave was simply one of the kindest people I have ever known. He would ask about me and my concerns even while I was in the hospital visiting him. He was friendly to everyone in high school and didn't change as he grew older. He will be greatly missed. My most sincere condolences to all his family members. I was lucky to have him as a friend and I will have happy memories of him forever.

David and I were high school classmates and lost touch right after graduation. We became friends decades later on Facebook. David was a kind and selfless person. I was so sorry to hear about his passing. My fondest memory is when he messaged me when I was in the emergency room. That text lasted two hours and then he insisted that I call him the next day to let him know that I was doing better. He didn’t even mention his own health issues at that time. I will miss his Facebook friendship and I want to extend my deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
