A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 2 p.m., Saturday, January 22, 2022, at Reformation Lutheran Church. Pastor Craig Sigmon and Oasis Chaplin John Stanley will officiate.

    So sorry for your loss. David was a sweet man. He always came into Commscope when he was delivering reels with a smile on his face. He will truly be missed.
