David Austin Wing, age 85, of Vestaburg, left this earthly home to meet his heavenly father on Thursday, July 9, 2015.  David was born on September 29, 1929, in the Sumner area, the son of Adophus Jarvis and Estella (Brecht) Wing.  He was raised in the Sumner/Riverdale area and attended school in Sumner and Elm Hall.  He completed additional education in and received certification in Welding and as a Machinist.

David accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1956 at the Assembly of God Church in Alma.  His has been a faithful follower of Christ since that time, leaving a legacy for his family and all that knew him to follow.  He has been a member of M-46 Tabernacle for most of his life, attended Crystal Lake Community Church, Edmore Full Gospel Tabernacle and most recently the Lighthouse Church of God in St. Louis.  David received his ordination as a licensed minister in 2012.

David was employed at Buick factory in Flint, Redmond Trailer in Alma and Lobdell Emery in Alma for over 35 years.  He enjoyed gardening, working in his yard, bird watching, tinkering in his shop, fishing, hunting and camping.  He built three of his homes and especially enjoyed traveling with his family.  However, his favorite pastime was his time spent with his Lord and Savior, praying with and for anyone who asked or needed prayer, and worshipping with his fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

On September 30, 1950, David married the love of his life, Luella Maxine Finch in Angola, Indiana, who survives.  He is also survived by his children:  Sharon and Don Snyder of Vestaburg, Rick and O.J.

    Dave was a wonderful Godly man. He provided great comfort to my husband, Chuck, when he was unable to go out. He visited Chuck weekly and they always prayed together before he left. They also prayed
    together on the phone when Dave was unable to visit. Dave always said, "Lord bless you" whenever he saw you. I know that the Lord blessed Him and his family. May God send his Holy Spirit to comfort
    you in your time of loss. I'm glad Dave was part of my life.

    I love you all dearly. Your family has been an important part of my life over the years. You children have learned well from your parents and I am proud to call you all friends. May it be a comfort
    to you all that David was and is still pointing souls to Christ through his life and yours. Much love and prayers.
