David Charles Lidke was born on January 22, 1962, in Trenton, New Jersey, and was a lifelong resident of Hightstown, New Jersey. He sadly passed away in the line of duty on Monday, December 23, 2013.
David was a Graduate of Hightstown High School and worked full time as a maintenance man for a local apartment complex for 25 years.
David also was a dedicated volunteer for the Hightstown Fire Company # 1 since January of 2000 and a member of the Mercer County Fire Police. David worked his way up the ladder to lieutenant fire police and donated all his time to the fire company. The fire house was David’s second home and family. He was well known by all the local residents for selling Christmas trees in the front of the fire house and was always seen sitting on the front of the fire truck waiting for a call.
David loved what he did, and you would always see him laughing. He would help in any way he could and religiously donated to the Red Cross. David spent as much time with his family as he could and loved them very much.
