David was a faithful Deacon at Manhattan Baptist Church and was very active in the homeless ministry.
Taking food and clothing and giving out the gospel was his favorite part of the ministry.
After serving his Country in the Army for 20 years. David worked in the U.S. Postal Service for more than 25 years. He was a very hard worker. He excelled on the golf course and loved golfing with his sons and grandsons. He loved The Ray’s and Seminoles. He loved going on cruises and had plans to go back to Alaska again. So many of our photos revolve around food because David loved to eat.
Most of all, David had a great love for his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He would read and study God’s word for hours. David led many of his family and friends to his Lord.
There will be a celebration of life for David at 11:00AM on June 17 th at Manhattan Baptist Church, 4300 South Manhattan Avenue, Tampa 33611. In Lieu of flowers we would like donations made in his name to the Nehemiah Project of Manhattan Baptist Church.
