“Deshun” or “Big Koop” as he was lovingly called by his family & close friends, knew him to be a charismatic young man. He was an affectionate and fun-loving uncle to his niece and nephews. David could always make you smile.
David was a 2011 graduate of Clarke Central High School. By being the youngest child and graduating from high school, he fulfilled his mama’s dream of all her children receiving a high school diploma. David had a vivaciousness for life and made friends easily, which he did not have a problem welcoming into his home. When he sat his sights on anything, he was determined to accomplish his goal. David will be greatly missed, because to know him was to love him!
Although David is gone, he will never be forgotten because his spirit will continue to live on in our hearts!
The family is receiving friends at the residence.
