David J. Brace

Age 73, of Watkins Glen, passed away March 27, 2021.

David graduated from Thomas A. Edison High School in 1965. He served in the Navy aboard the USS Independence. After returning to Elmira Heights, he worked at Brace Tool & Machine before beginning a long career at Ingersoll-Rand and Dresser-Rand. He enjoyed time spent on Keuka Lake while growing up. He shared laughter and good times with the many friends he made at Dresser-Rand, Seneca Lodge, Watkins Glen International (The Glen) and at the Vintage Grand Prix Festival in the many years he lived in Watkins Glen. David loved his Doberman Pinschers, a good joke, a cold beer, and the home he shared with Joyce. He will be missed.

A “Celebration of Life” will be held at a future date.

He is survived by his oving wife of 38 years and best friend, Joyce Whitney Brace; stepchildren, Joanna Haynes (Jeffrey) of Hilton, NY and Paul L. Meacham Jr. (Stacey) of Seneca. SC; step-grandchildren, Gracie Jean Iatomassi, Finn Meacham, and Nico Meacham; brothers and sister, Robert D. Brace (Marlene) of Horseheads, Thomas N. Brace (Cyndi) of Elmira, and Susan I. Brace of Watkins Glen. Memorial donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice or the International Motor Racing Research Center in Watkins Glen.

Eric and I were so sad to learn about David's passing. He always had a smile and laugh for us when we saw him, mostly running into him at the Lodge. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you Joyce! Sending hugs in this difficult time. Please let us know when you have the celebration of life. Love Tina and Eric Hazlitt

Dave was a such a great technical mentor and go-to person when I needed help. The bonus was that he was my friend. Nancy and I are thinking of you no wishing you the best.

I met David when I started working at Ingersoll-Rand in 1980. I didn’t see him often but when I did he always had a smile on his face and, often, a joke to tell. Joyce and I became good friends and all of us shared good times, good food and many laughs together for a few years before Joyce left Ingersoll-Rand for greener pastures. I’ll always remember David’s smile, it was contagious. My heart is with all of his family at this difficult time. Joyce, if you ever need a hand, an ear or a shoulder, I’ll be there.
