Sunrise October 30, 1991 - Sunset January 9, 2023

Master David Chinonyerem Amutah was born on October 30, 1991, to Mrs. Abigail and Mr. Solomon Amutah in Trenton, New Jersey, and was granted his angel wings on

January 9, 2023.

He was the youngest of Mrs. Abigail Amutah’s four children. He was baptized and raised as a Christian at the First Baptist Church of Trenton, where he was active in the church's Baptist Youth Fellowship group and Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (T.A.S.K). David attended Trenton Public Schools through 8th grade, when he received admission to and a full scholarship for the prestigious Lawrenceville School in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.

While boarding at the Lawrenceville School, David studied Latin, served as president of the film making club, and participated in intramural football. After graduating from high school, David studied film production at Mercer County Community College, where he earned his Associates Degree. David then attended Hofstra University and completed his studies in filmmaking at Montclair State University obtaining his Bachelor of Arts degree.

David subsequently worked as a Motion Graphic Designer for IMGN Media at Warner Music Group up until his untimely passing. He directed his own films including The Song Is Over (2015) and Corndog (2019). He lent his creative talent to various other film productions and contributed to the completion of over 12 short films. He completed an internship with one of his idols, legendary filmmaker John Sayles. David was an avid lover of film, music, food, and his family.

He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Abigail Amutah; his father, Mr. Solomon Amutah; his siblings Dr. Ndidiamaka Amutah-Onukagha, Mayor Emeritus Mr. Azunnah Amutah, Dr. Chimaobi Amutah, Dr. Christina Amutah and Mr. Kelechi Amutah; as well as a host of other family and friends.

David will always be remembered for his infectious smile, obedience, humility, broad intelligence, kind heart, and generous spirit. Those who were fortunate enough to be touched by him can testify that the quality of his existence far exceeded the quantity of time in which he blessed this Earth.

“My baby boy, wherever you go, or whatever you do, remember my undying Love will always be with you. The heavenly angels are now watching over you, and I know you are seeing such wonderful things. Please do not cry, nor be afraid my son. Your health and joy are perfectly restored, as you walk in the pure love of our heavenly Father.”

Love you forever, Mommy
