August 16, 1952 - July 6, 2021
David Michael Slezak, 68, of Roswell, GA, passed away peacefully at home on July 6, 2021. He survived a brain tumor 32 years ago and fought valiantly in his last years against the long-term impacts. His faith helped him to be strong and to provide support and inspiration to others with cancer. David was born in Middletown, Ohio on August 16, 1952 to Paul A. and Marie D. Slezak. He graduated from Fenwick High School in 1970 and attended Miami University Middletown, and Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Like his Father Paul, David played the bass and had a life-long love of music of all kinds, and was well known as a local musician. He moved to Atlanta in the early 1980’s . David was devoted to his family, friends, and extended church family. He was an active and longtime member of the Catholic Church of St. Ann’s, and loved attending bible study with the women of the Little Rock group. David also had a passion for history and remained a life-long student. He was a wonderful story teller, and was cherished for his kindness, sunny disposition, and silly sense of humor. David also loved his faithful companion and protector, his dog Sunny who rarely left his lap. David is survived by and will be deeply missed by his beloved wife, Elaine Steinhauer-Slezak, his daughter Samantha Guzowski (Kayne), and his step-children Emily Moore (Brandon Evans), Lucy Moore, Anna Sternberger (Konstantin) and grandson Christopher, his Aunt Vilma Erb, his sisters Paula Mehl (Tom) and Sandy Slezak, brothers Tom Slezak and Mark Slezak, and by his extended family of many nieces and nephews and their many children and grandchildren, and his cousins.
