He enjoyed everything about the Bay Area - running in the Bay to Breakers, cycling across the Golden Gate Bridge, and driving his vintage VW Bug around. David was an avid cyclist who competed in amateur bike races. In 1991, he completed a solo bike ride across the United States from California to Connecticut. He belonged to an extensive cycling community in San Francisco. He had many cycling friends who would like to thank him for opening up an incredible new world to them as seen on two wheels. He enjoyed introducing them to rides in the Marin Hills and racing them to the top of its steep climbs. One of his cycling friends said it best: thank you for being my patient teacher and for so enthusiastically showing me how to love the Bay Area’s coastal hills that I didn’t think I could possibly love any more than I already did. You taught me how to climb. You taught me how to descend. You taught me how to corner through an S-curve like nobody’s business. And you taught me how (just that one time) to plot the most amazing and victorious sneak attack on Hawk Hill. We wish we could ride with you again and we wish we could hear your laugh again.
He leaves many friends in Tolland. He is survived by his mother, Maureen Mulholland, his brothers Mark and James Mulholland, his sister-in-law Jill Mulholland, and his niece Eva Mulholland. There will be a graveside service at South Cemetery, 299 Cider Mill Rd, Tolland, CT on Thursday July 15, 2021 at 11:30 AM. For online condolences please visit www.pietrasfuneralhome.com
