David Glen Weatherford passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2013, at his home. Funeral services were held Aug. 20 at the Taylor Stake Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
He was born Sept. 6, 1950, to James and Tennie Weatherford. He and his mother moved to the White Mountains of Arizona, where David grew up and met his childhood sweetheart, Connie Boring. The two dated for several years and were eventually married on Feb. 18, 1969, in the Mesa Temple, settling to live in the Snowflake/Taylor area for the majority of their life together. Their marriage was blessed with three lovely children, one son and two daughters.
David spent his employed years as a journeyman auto mechanic, working for Lee Geiger and the paper mill, before taking a medical retirement in 1999. He suffered from kidney failure and was a transplant recipient, a gift that improved his life far past the normal life expectancy of most transplant recipients.
He enjoyed many things, but those who knew him well will remember him having a great love for motorcycles. He joined a local bike club, and could often be found planning trips or taking rides with friends and his wife. He enjoyed being able to travel this way while his health permitted it.
Even though his health was not the best, one could always find David at his home, welcoming family and friends over for special dinners, visiting and laughter. Quick to help anyone in need, his smile was infectious and his heart was just as big as the rest of his personality. He was loved by all who met him.
Survivors include his wife, Connie Weatherford of Taylor; his son, James Weatherford (Lacey Weatherford) of Snowflake; two daughter, Brenda Lunt (Benjamin Lunt) of Taylor and Shiela Jarvis (Mitch Jarvis) of Chandler; 12 grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
Owens Livingston Mortuary of Snowflake was in charge of the arrangements.David Weatherford
