David Stevens Hook, 88, of Ocean, was called home on December 5, 2017. He is now face to face with his Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, in heaven. David was born & raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It was there he met the love of his life and eventual bride of 61 years, Nancy. He graduated from Michigan State.
His 42 year career with Hilton Hotels Corp took the couple from Michigan to Ohio to Pittsburgh to Los Angeles and ultimately NY. Settling in Middletown, NJ in 1967 they raised their 4 children, one from each of those cities, and resided there upon retirement.
David was a man of great faith. He shared his beliefs freely with everyone he met. You may not agree with his position or point of view but with his passion and conviction you respected him and the values he held dear.
He was a loving husband, devoted father, doting grandfather, wonderful uncle, caring nephew, attentive brother & thoughtful son.
David enjoyed studying scripture, spending time with his family, sports, playing bridge and in his younger days he was always up for a pick up game of basketball with the neighbor boys.

He is survived by his beautiful wife, Nancy, his loving children, Kenyon, Kevin, Cindy, Dana & Coleen, his sister Ronnie Ruple, 7 grandchildren Jessica and Rachael Hook, Justin, Tristin and Dianna Hook, Amanda Amaral and Alyssa Iddings and his 3 great grandchildren.
