David Thomas French


David passed away on Wednesday, April 23, 2014.  He was one of a kind.  Calm, even tempered, and a deep thinker at heart, he loved to laugh and believed you should find the humor in everything.  His favorite things included the music of the Rolling Stones, reading Stephen King novels, playing Texas Hold Em poker online, and going camping for vacation.
 

David is predeceased by his parents and a sister, and is survived by two sisters.  Early in life he worked with his father in the family well drilling business.  Working with his dad was always remembered as a source of pride for David.  While battling with alcohol for most of his adult life, David typically worked odd jobs here and there and really enjoyed the time he spent landscaping.


He shared the last eighteen years of his life with his devoted companion, Michele Tillman.  Remembering stories about David makes her smile, especially when telling the April Fools Day pranks he liked to pull on her.  She also wants everyone to remember his deep compassion for others.  He never turned people away who would come up in public asking for spare change.  He was even concerned about the proper and most humane way to kill insects!  He truly had a huge heart and will be greatly missed.

And if anyone decides to take the time out of their busy lives to put down the booze and go to your father's grave because they think your ashes are buried there, don't bother, because your ashes are with ME, and that's where they will stay...

You left this world 1 year ago today...I still miss you and life still seems so strange without you here...You are in my thoughts everyday, but even more so today. Last year was the toughest day of my life. The one day I couldn't help you...I just had to watch you slip away. Don't know if you knew I was there, but Stevie and I were at your bedside all day..until you were gone. Theres just me, and Mason now....and we miss you a lot! Till we meet again...Love you, Miss you, and will see you soon :)
