David Wayne Roper, passed away on March 20, 2016 of cancer. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Meleea Ballard, children, and 11 grandchildren.

He was most grateful for his Heavenly Father's bounteous blessings, His gospel, and all that the Savior has done and made possible for him. He was immensely grateful for all who helped him throughout life, and it was his hope that he was also able to help a few on their pathway in life. He loved the members of the Sioux City Iowa Stake whom he served as stake president. He also dearly loved the leadership of the Church and sustained them with all his heart.
David was preceeded in death by his mother, Lucille, and daughter, Emily. He is survived by his wife, children John (Wendy), Laura (Cody) Andreasen, Mark (Britta), Anne (Tom) Rowley, and Daniel.
