- July 29, 1955 - September 23, 2010 Beloved husband, son, father, uncle, and brother. David fought a courageous and long battle with cancer. As always, his smile shone through the pain. He was an inspiration to all that knew him. Heaven's gain is our loss. David is survived by wife, Karen, sons Gordon and Benjamin, mother Louise Heizer (Robert), brother Greg, sister Kathryn Oxford (Darnell), nephews, and grandchildren. David is preceded in death by his much loved father, Charles, and his brother Bill. We know that they are waiting with open arms at heaven's door. David was born in Bremen, Indiana, moved to Arizona in grade school, graduated from Arcadia High School in 1973, and from the University of Arizona. His company, Wheelchair Lifts, serviced our community, and he always went the extra mile for his customers. David's many, many friends were there with him on his long journey. Those friendships will follow him to eternity. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the
/ Pancreatic Cancer Research, or to Hospice of the Valley. Services will be held Monday, Oct. 4th at 3:00 p.m. at Arizona Community Church 9325 S. Rural Rd., Tempe. Reception to follow at the church.
