David G. Mboroki age 67 of Waterbury, Connecticut passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 29th 2018 at the Masonic Home of Wallingford surrounded by the love and comfort of his family after a courageous three year battle with cancer. He was the loving husband of Fredah Gatobu.
David was born April 15th 1950 in Kenya, Africa, the son of the late Jeremiah and Priscilla (Nkirote) Mboroki. He was raised in Kenya where he was educated and worked as an electrician for many years before immigrating to the United States in 2005. Although David had physically left Kenya, part of him still remained there and he always enjoyed traveling there to visit with his family and friends. David enjoyed watching television to stay up to date on current US and Foreign affairs and was avid reader. What brought the greatest joy to David was spending time with his family, especially his children and grandchildren.
