DAVID LEE RUTLEDGE On August 31, 2011, after a long battle with Leukemia, David Lee Rutledge went to be with Jesus Christ his Lord and Savior, with his beloved wife by his side. David was born on June 13, 1946 to Ray and Margaret Rutledge. He graduated from McLane High School in Fresno, Ca in 1964. Dave, as he was known to many, was a master salesman. And so in 1982 he started Fairway Insurance in Ventura, Ca. In October of 1986 he moved his family to the High Desert, where he combined agencies with his partner and friend, Lance Lane. In spite of his health, Dave lived life to the fullest. He loved golf, traveling, boating, cars, people, and the San Francisco 49er's. During football season, you could find him watching games with his friend, Mr. Roedell. David is survived by his wife of 31 years Cheryl Rutledge, son Eirik and his wife Angie, daughter Jill and her husband Todd, daughter Melissa, grandchildren Megan, Alyssa, Daniel, Bradley, Alayna, Joshua, and Adrienne, great-grandchildren Gwen and Davin, sister Kathryn and her husband Jim, mother-in-law Kay, sister-in-law Jeannine, brother-in-law Jim, niece Heather, nephews Jason, James, and Ken. And of course, Pippi and Chloe. Dave touched many lives along the way, and will truly be missed.
