David Marion Trunkey.

David Marion Trunkey passed away after suffering a massive stroke, on Sunday, June 12, just shy of his 75th birthday. He was at home in the care of his son Jonathan and wife Amy, his son Steven and David's wife, Tammi Easterday.

He was born June 21, 1947, in Fort Collins, Colorado. He is the third of six children born to Roscoe and Mildred Trunkey. He had four brothers: Allen, Michael, Donald and Leonard; and his favorite and only sister, Rhonda Schneider.

His first wife, Sandy Grantham blessed him with two sons, Jonathan and Steven. He had five grandsons and one special great-granddaughter.

David served in the Army and was stationed in Korea. His eldest brother, Allen was in Vietnam, and brother Michael was stateside. All three boys served in the Army at the same time. He then began his 31-year career as a Kern County Firefighter, which he believed was a great honor.

He was an active member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Tehachapi. He enjoyed spending time with several groups of friends. Some of his favorite activities were riding motorcycles, racing R.C. cars and having breakfast with friends. He enjoyed studying his Bible and Biblical promises and had a deep desire to be in heaven with his Savior, Jesus Christ.

He is predeceased by his parents and his brother, Allen.

Internment was held at Bakersfield National Cemetery with Military Honors on June 21.

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