David’s favorite pastime was going to the races. He loved everything about racing. David also loved mowing the church yard at Life Tabernacle. It was important to him to make sure the yard looked nice for every church service. His dedication was evident in the work he put into making the property look its’ very best.
For many years David worked as a van driver for Holiday Inn. He always tried to make sure the guests were well taken care of. He was a kind and compassionate person; always willing to help anyone. He was a living example of Ephesians 4:32. (And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.) David was also a tow truck driver for many years and he loved doing this job as well.
David is survived by his sister, Cathy (Wilson) Clover, of Lincoln; his sister, Sandra Smith, of Texas; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
