Tributes have flowed for loved Kingsley deli owner David Infirri who lost his battle with cancer on Tuesday.

The Passione Gourmet Deli Café owner was a fierce advocate for cancer research as an ambassador Cancer Council WA’s Biggest Morning Tea for the past four years.

“So I’m just doing some maintenance IV chemo now,” he said.

But the sad news came on Wednesday when deli staff member Jake posted on Facebook that Mr Infirri passed away “surrounded by family and was very peaceful”.

“This living legend was fighting up until his last moment,” he said.

“Dave brought an amazing shop into such an amazing community and it couldn’t have blossomed without all of you. He loved what he did because of the amazing customers we have.

“He has taught me everything I know and extremely thankful and blessed to be a part of such an inspirational person’s life.

“The staff and I will continue the legacy that he has created with the community he helps build.”

The Facebook post received almost 800 comments in just seven hours.

“My heart goes out to his lovely wife and two beautiful children, and all his cherished family and friends. What an incredible man who inspired so many with his quick wit, compassionate nature and fighting spirit,” Krystle Lavorgna said.

“Heartbreaking to hear David has passed. He was such a fighter. Condolences to his family and the Passione team,” Bree Davis added.

“Devastated to hear this news. David, you gave such encouraging words to us during my husband’s battle with brain cancer. Even through your own pain and battles you found the strength to lift others up,” Anita Parise said.

“Absolutely devastated to hear this sad news. What an icon Dave was in our beautiful Kingsley community. He will be so sorely missed, yet remembered so fondly. He spread positive vibes, even in his darkest moments,” Elise Gaglio said.
