David G. Gemmell Obituary

David passed away in Omak, Washington, on May 27, 2017. He was born in Dunsmuir, California, to David and Leah Gemmell April 19, 1938. David attended Highline High School in Burien, Washington, and served in the U.S. Coast Guard.

His wife of 44 years Valerie and brothers, Paul Cross and Mark Cross, and sister, Loretta Erickson survive him.

David was an avid fisherman, photographer, scuba diver, and an incredible craftsman. He was a free thinker and rarely held back his opinion. David had a love for the outdoors and family outings; most recently a trip to Hawaii with Valerie, Paul and Mark for ten beautiful days. While there he renewed a friendship with a family member, Toni Cross.

David lived coast to coast; Washington, California, Florida and many places between. Upon his death he lived in Malott, Washington with his devoted wife Valerie and beloved dogs Olivia and Oliver.

A private celebration of David's life will be held at a later date.
