David married Roberta Wetzel on December 14, 1957. They are the parents of two children, Ambassador Jeffrey (Mary Draper) Feltman of New York, New York and Lisa (Bruce) Spring of Middletown. Also survived by his grandchildren Margaret and Ian Spring, sister Barbara Caron of Colorado and numerous nieces and nephews.

David is a 1953 graduate of Greenville High School, attended Ohio University and is a 1957 graduate of Miami University.

He was also an avid boater and cyclist.

Although David was active in many family, church and community activities, he always appreciated when a dear friend suggested obituaries should read-“David was alive, but now he’s dead. Nothing more needs to be said.”

A Memorial Service will be held at 10:00 A.M. Friday September 4, 2015 in the Zechar Bailey Funeral Home Greenville, Ohio with Pastor Richard Venus officiating. Burial will be held in the Greenville Union Cemetery at the convenience of the family. The family will receive friends on Thursday from 5:00 P.M. until 7:00 P.M. in the funeral home.

It is the wishes of the family that Memorial Contributions be given to the American Diabetes Association or church, charity, or organization of your choice.
