Mr. David O. Paris, of Grove City, Ohio, passed away at home on May 31, 2018, at the age of 58. David was born on May 8, 1960 in Wilmington, Delaware, to the late Olden Edwards Paris and Alice Blue Paris. In August 1973, David left Wilmington for Columbus, Ohio, where he attended Dominion Junior High and Whetstone High School. He graduated from Linsly Military Institute in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1978. While in high school, David swam for the Linsly swim team and performed with the school's marching band. David graduated from The Ohio State University in 2003 with a degree in natural resources. Following graduation, he worked as a park naturalist with Columbus Metro Parks. One of his great passions has been exploration of the natural world, and particularly birding. In 2015 David met the love of his life, Brenda Blanton, with whom he lived happily for several years. David and Brenda shared a love of cooking, music, a host of animal friends, and sharing time with Brenda's grandchildren.
