~David Kelly Linder, age 63, a 25-year resident of Bullhead City, Arizona, died Monday, October 7, 2013, at Kingman Regional Medical Center. ~David had a stroke in October, 2010. For the first year after the stroke it seemed that he would bounce back, but then started a slow, steady decline. He was born July 31, 1950, in Des Moines, Iowa.

~His family moved to California in 1959, and he became an enthusiastic and proficient body surfer, and taught himself how to play the flute. He graduated from Santa Ana High in 1968 and joined the Navy, serving our country on a nuclear submarine as an electrician.

He was always smiling, a friend to all, extremely intelligent,

a natural at mathematics and knew all the answers on

Jeopardy faster than any contestant.

~After his honorable discharge from the Navy, David got his bachelor's degree at Cal State Fullerton, and worked as an accountant in his father's CPA business. He "retired" from the CPA business after the death of his father and moved to Bullhead City in 1988. David found work in the construction industry and would frequently stop at the Sunshine Marina, not only for a "cool one" after work, but also for a dip in the river, which he loved. Due to the construction slowdown, his last job was as a bartender/guy Friday at the Wonder Bar.

~He is survived by his sister, Terry Sanders; nieces, Brooke Sanders and Katelyn Watson; nephew, Joshua Watson, all in California; and his good buddies, Regina Kish and her grandson, Aaron Evans in Bullhead City.
