Dave was born in Bristol on July 16th 1924 the son of the late Giuseppe and Adeline (Monico) Carello. In his very early life Dave and his family had a dairy farm in Great Barrington, MA of which he fondly remembered. After moving back to Bristol, Dave was raised in Bristol and became a laborer and craftsman in the family Plastering trade. In 1950 Dave was drafted into United States Army for the Korean War service. Dave served with the GHQ Far East Command 8226 Long Liners arriving in Pusan, Korea on Thanksgiving day 1950. Upon his safe return Dave continued the family Masonry and Plastering trade. They went on to become an employee of the Uniroyal plant in Naugatuck where he retired. Not ever wanted to stop working, Dave went on to become security guard at ESPN and later at Bristol Hospital. Dave was a voracious reader of any and all subjects as many can confirm, he wrote wonderful children's stories that were the first stories told to his children and he was interested in anything to do with stars and planets and space exploration.

Dave loved and dearly missed all of his brothers and sisters who predeceased him on the Monico and Carello side of the family. Dave is survived his brother, Richard E Carello of California his children, David J. Carello, Jr. and a special daughter-in-law Joanne Carello, Richard M.
