He is survived by his loving wife, Fredene; sons, Dennis (Beth), Rick (Juliann), and Gary (Teresa); sister, Betty; sister-in-law, Phoebe; 10 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. David (aka Midnight Milker) was a Ruritan member for 54 years, serving his community through the Belmont II Ruritan Club and was a Tom Downing Fellow. He worked at Lynchburg Foundry for 31 years and many would know him as he was an avid farmer and slaughtered many cows and pigs through the years. He loved to go pheasant hunting annually with a group of friends in South Dakota, but we think they all liked Ms. South Dakota better. Due to current government restrictions, no services will be held. A private graveside service will be held at the Southwest Virginia Veterans Cemetery in Dublin. A memorial service will be held at Belview United Methodist Church at a time to be determined. on May 12, 2020.5
