David enjoyed the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. Summers were spent camping with his girls and their families.
After a career spent in the forest products and RV industries, David and Judy became fixtures at craft shows all over the Northwest.
David is survived by his wife, Judy, his wonderful wife of 51 years; daughters, Vicki (Jon) Folkestad, Portland, Ore.; Kathy (David) Watson of Prineville; Teresa Fogelquist of Bend; Diane (Gary) Sperling, of Camas Wash.; four grandsons, Justin, Billy, Craig, and Gunnar; and lifelong friend, Jim Warren of LaPine.
A celebration of David's life will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28 at Niswonger-Reynolds Chapel, 105 N.W. Irving Avenue, Bend. David was unfailingly friendly and his charm and humor will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
The family suggests a donation in David's memory to either Shiner's Hospital for Children or the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
