David Carl Strother, 52, made his heavenly journey to be with our Lord and Savior on Monday, November 29, 2021.
David sported many titles throughout his life: Son, Friend, Husband, Father, Brother-in-law, Star Athlete, Class Clown, Elvis lover… but the titles he wore the most proudly were Son, Husband and Dad. Anyone who knew David knew that he was the most loving son, husband and father a family could ask for. His love for his mom, wife and his boys was undeniable.
It is hard to imagine a world without David in it. The sun just doesn’t seem as bright since the Lord called him home.
He made many friends during his time here on earth. He was the kind of person who drew people in with his childlike spirit and love for life, but more so, he was the kind of person who sought people out. David was so intentional with the ones he loved and made it a point to make all those he encountered feel so important and special. He would reach out just to let you know that he was thinking about you, or that he was grateful for you, or just share a treasured memory with you. He was a friend you could always count on.
David will be remembered for his love and laughter, his acceptance of everyone, refusal to dismiss anyone, and for his exceptionally hilarious and cheesy posts on Facebook. He was our very own Chris Farley.
We can only hope the breaking of our hearts now is testament enough to the love we feel for you. How blessed are we to have had someone that makes saying goodbye so hard.
He is survived by his loving wife, Sheryl; sons, Jackson and Jensen; beloved & irreplaceable "Sonny" to mother, Rosie; aunt, Gabriele Parham (Leon); sisters-in-law, Kerri Wiese (Dave) and Terri Richardson (Vince); brother-in-law, Kevin Ulrich (Barbara) and a multitude of cousins, nieces and nephews, and friends all over the world.
A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, December 18, 2021 at 10am at Edge Park United Methodist Church, 5616 Crowley Rd. Fort Worth, Tx 76134, with Pastor Joe Chamness officiating.
