Gayle Patrick David

Gayle Patrick David, 79, of McComb, Mississippi, passed away on January 8, 2019 peacefully in his sleep surrounded by family.

Gayle was born in New Iberia, Louisiana on November 24, 1939. He joined the US Navy at 17 years of age. He returned to New Iberia and owned a barbershop. He would then retire from Texaco Offshore Productions in 1993 after many years as a dedicated employee.

Gayle was a servant for our Lord and was a witness for Him in Lafayette and McComb. He ministered to nursing home residents and elderly church members while in Lafayette and then became a great witness in McComb as he took time to visit with the employees at Wal-Mart. He was an amazing cook and shared his delicious food with family and friends.

Gayle is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Judy S. David, of McComb, MS, daughters, Kim D. Lewis (Warren) of Glen Rose, TX., Laurie Leal of McComb, MS., Rose L. Puckett (Rob), Rhonda L. Allen (Ronnie), Susan L. Domingue, of Lafayette, LA and a son, Clay P. David, of California. Survivors also include his step-mother, Mildred D. Dobbins (Bob), of Broussard, LA, two sisters, Tina D. Mena (Sal) of Broussard, LA and Mary Galleon (Joe) of Katy, TX; and many more family members and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Maurice (Benny) David and Pearl M. Kennedy; a son, Ben Patrick David, a daughter, Vickie L. Nettles, and a baby brother, Manuel.

Gayle was the proud grandfather of 11 grandchildren and great-grandfather of 4. He was a man who loved The Lord, and his family. He will be deeply missed by his family and those whose lives he touched.

A Celebration of Life memorial service will be held Saturday, January 26, 2019, at the Calvary Baptist Church in Lafayette, LA.

Donations can be made to the building fund at South McComb Baptist Church, 340 24th Street, McComb, MS. 39648.
