David was born May 1, 1948 in Charleston, Mississippi and migrated to Detroit Michigan with his family as a toddler. David was the 7th of 14 children. He experienced much trauma in his formative years leaving him susceptible to the influence of Drugs and alcohol. Though highly talented in sports as well as music, David experienced further losses as a young adult due to his addiction. David fell in love with Jesus during his final incarceration, from that point on his life completely changed. His life verse was 2nd Corinthians 5:17: Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. David lived his life serving his Lord and encouraging others that they could also have a new life in Jesus. He served his Lord, his family, and community wholeheartedly with love, sincere devotion and many songs and laughs along the way.
David will be deeply missed by his wife Rhonda; children Lisa Hunt, Kewana Greer, Chantal Oglesby, Dane Greer, Rachel (Nate) Hartzler, Neil (Kim) Callahan; 18 grandchildren; and many great-grandchildren; and the community that he dearly loved.
