David was preceded in death by his parents; three of his siblings: his sisters, Linda Jennings and Karen Moore; and his brother, Kelly; and his beloved son, Vaughan; and much adored granddaughter Alicia. David was proud to live what he described as a good, God-fearing, and honorable life. He loved golf and writing letters to the editor. His musings, humor, golf stories, and unconditional love will be missed. A graveside service will take place at Greenwood Memorial Cemetery at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 22, 2024.
