David Cargill October 1, 1942 – March 30, 2022

Celebration of Life

David was born Oct. 1, 1942 in Tulsa Oklahoma to Clarence William and Jessie Beatrice Cargill. He was one of 11 children and was so much to so many! He passed away peacefully on March 30.

He was a bonafide ladies' man to the end, flirting with the nurses in the hospital. He had more charm than you can imagine. He told the best stories and gave everything he had to the people he loved. One of the things he really loved to give was his opinion on politics. He was one of a kind for sure.

He was the best dad, brother and papa EVER! Life without him will never be the same.

David is survived by his sons, Don Cargill and Tom Saunders; his daughter, Michelle Church; three granddaughters, Breanne Swann, Brooke Hood and Bailee Sanders; five great-grandchildren, Branson, Brinlee, Baylor, Bristol and Ireland. They were the joy of his life. He is also survived by his sisters, Connie Simpson, Susan Spell and Jackie Eskew; and multiple nieces, nephews and dear friends.

Time marches on!

David's graveside service took place on April 8.

Wood Family Funeral Service was entrusted with his care. For condolences, please visit http://www.woodmortuary.net.
