Mr. Hood died Nov. 15, 2018. He was born Dec. 20, 1946, in Ding Dong, on the Churchill Ranch.

David graduated from Florence High School in 1965. He proudly served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War and Korea conflict. Afterward, he worked for the Southwestern Bell Telephone Company for many years.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Christine; son DeWayne (Breanna) Hood; stepdaughter Karen (Bill) Ross; and sister Frances "Lucy" Murphy. Loved by his grandchildren: Brooke Brode, Lacey Merritt, Reagan Hood, Caden Hood, Zoe Ross, William Ross, and numerous nieces and nephews.
