David was born in May, of 1928, the son of William R. and Gertie E. Spaugh. David never knew a stranger, his door was always open and everyone was welcome. He was married to his sweetheart Colleen (Wakefield) who has been waiting to meet him again in Heaven.
David is survived by his twin brother Dwight and his younger brother John, his children, grandchildren, extended family, friends and loved ones, who will all agree…he was one of a kind. David was a loving husband, provider, hard worker, friend, proud Navy man, and an unforgettable story teller; there will never be another man like him.
David was preceded in death by his parents, Wife, brother Charles and sister Audrey.
