David W Coffey of Linville Creek Rd. age 58, passed away Thursday afternoon in the home surrounded by those who loved him.
Born October 17, 1964, In Bay County Florida to Deward Burris and Mary Evelyn Wilson Coffey. He spent his life in Watauga County, NC
David was a member of Brushy Fork Baptist Church and loved his church family dearly. David loved the Lord and lived his life showing how important truly knowing the Lord is. David was a person that never knew a stranger and treated everyone equally. He saw value in everyone and greatly cared for all who he knew.
David started as an auto technician from an early age working beside his dad and never stopped. He became a Master Auto Technician and mentored many young technicians. David cared for young people enough that he was not teaching them just about cars, but he provided lifelong mentorship about life and cars.
David loved cars but his great love was motorcycles and riding on the open road with his brothers. He loved seeing the world God created on two wheels. One of David's favorite bible verses was Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." David always felt he was free as the eagle on his motorcycle.
Preceded in death by his father Deward Burris Coffey, and his mother and father-in-law Everett and Sylvia Hicks.
Surviving is his wife of 35 years Diane H Coffey, his mother Mary Evelyn Wilson Coffey, one son Samuel L Coffey of the home, one daughter Kelly D Parsons and husband Jamie of Boone, NC, and two grandsons Blake and Lucas Parsons. Along with his brother by love Stacey Miller, his loved nephew Casey Miller, his sister-in-law by love Kelley Ford, two loved nieces Brittany Morris and Heather Ford and his loved brothers the Ramblers.
