David Jonas Holzsager, M.D., 76, of Yorktown


YORKTOWN — David Jonas Holzsager, M.D., affectionately known as “Dr. David,” passed away peacefully on April 25, 2022. Dr. David began his life in New York City, living in Manhattan and Long Island in his early years. He followed in his father’s footsteps, pursuing a lifelong career in pediatrics, starting with a prestigious education at Cornell University and Thomas Jefferson University School of Medicine.

After completing his education, Dr. David did an internship at Jacobi Pediatric Hospital and moved to Massachusetts to complete his residency at Boston Medical Center. There he began practicing medicine and met his wife, Denise, who predeceased him in February, 2020. Dr. David practiced in Massachusetts for several years before exploring a dream to move out west to California. Eventually the family returned to the East Coast to be closer to family, settling in Virginia.

David is survived by three children, his sons, Philip and Jonas, and daughter Lynne, two grandchildren Connor and Cate, and his twin sister Lisa.

During his life David was an avid skier and runner, a motorcycle rider, and aikido instructor. He was a science fiction and fantasy fan, and a lover of dad humor. During his later years he enjoyed cultivating beautiful gardens with Denise around his Yorktown properties, when not caring for patients in his signature Hawaiian shirts.

Dr. David was beloved not only by his family, but also by hundreds of patients. He will be dearly missed by many. A joint celebration of life will be held for David and Denise at a date to be announced by the family.
