David Michael Pennington went to rest in the arms of his Lord on Jan. 28, 2013. He was born on Oct. 26, 1986. He attended grade school, middle school and part of high school in Springfield, Mo. He lived with his mother in Pittsburg, Kan., for a shortwhile during the rest of high school. He moved back to Springfield and attended OTC before moving to Fort Collins, Colo. It was one of his dreams to live in Colorado after his many trips there, skiing with his father. Their last skiing trip together was in 2009.
David loved the outdoors so much. He loved camping, canoeing, White River rafting, and hiking.
Though he loved adventure and the mountains, he always came back to Springfield. Most recently, he was attending OTC and had expressed a desire to be a forest ranger.
He is survived by his father and stepmother, Steven and D’Andrea Pennington of Springfield; his sister Annie Pennington of Waukesha, Wisc.; his Aunt Deb and Uncle Walt Shields; his aunt Larenda and Uncle Lonnie Dravenstott; his uncle Win Dyer; his cousins Faydonna and Brandon Heath and their son Grant; hig cousins Heather and Neil Chapman and their sons Lane and Landry; and his step grandparents Marlene and Rodney Dier and others.
David is loved by many and we mourn his loss until we are all reunited with him in Heaven. David, we miss you and your smile so much.
