Virginia Beach—David Cohen, aka KING DAVID, 64, passed away on Thursday, February 25, 2021 after a long fight against complications from COVID.

He was the best man we ever knew, and we are the luckiest people in the world to have had him in our lives. We are so moved by the outpouring of love, support, and kindness. He was loved by so many people and left a mark on everyone that he met; it’s so warming to hear people speak about him.

David served as a member of the Israeli military at a young age and moved to Virginia Beach 30 years ago. He was a proud citizen of both Israel and America. He was a long-time entrepreneur and was known to many from his jewelry businesses in Tidewater. He will be deeply missed.

David is survived by his mother, Rachel Cohen; three children, Gal Cohen, and his wife Brooke, Edan Cohen, and Noa Cohen; two brothers, Reuven Cohen, and Claude Cohen; two grandchildren, Bella Cohen, and Beck Cohen; his beloved partner and the mother of Noa, Kerri Cohen; and her daughter, Kailyn; and his former wife and mother to Gal and Edan, Tal Cohen.

David was in good health before this; statistically, he should have survived COVID. Sadly, as we can see, nothing at all is guaranteed. We ask that we all continue to do our part to protect ourselves and the people around us by wearing masks, social distancing, and doing everything we can to minimize the risks we take each day. The end of the pandemic is near. Let’s continue to see it through to the end properly. We promise it will be worth it.

A graveside service was held privately with Rabbi Israel Zoberman officiating. H.D. Oliver Funeral Apts. Online condolences may be made to the family at hdoliver.com. Memorial donations may be made to Yahad–United for Israel’s Soldiers https://www.ufis.org/.
