June 12, 1944 - May 28, 2012
David was the son of Albert and Inez Downs but was raised by his Aunt Eula and Uncle Clyde Wilder. A lifelong resident of Vacaville, he worked for local businesses after high school graduation and served with the Army
in Korea. A disabling condition prevented his working after his discharge, but with the help of others, especially Diane Christ and Gail Olson, he was able to cope. He became ill last April and died May 28. Lack of information delayed notification of his family, but he was finally buried Aug. 8, in the Veterans Cemetery in Dixon and is now at peace. Preceded in death by his parents and the Wilders; sisters, Linda Dalton and Lois Parsons. Survived by brothers, John of Pima, AZ and Gene of Napa; foster sister, Carol Stowers of Fairfield; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
