David Lee Yarger

April 29, 1940 — March 18, 2021

YARGER, David Lee, age 80, of Kettering, passed away Thursday, March 18, 2021. David was born April 29, 1940 in Dayton, Ohio to the late Harold and Alta (Wolford) Yarger. He graduated from Kettering Fairmont high school and attended Sinclair College. After his education David enlisted in the military, and served his country for a total of 7 years in the Army as well as the Air National Guard.

Throughout his life David loved putting his repair skills to the test, and was always tinkering or helping his loved ones with projects. He had a passion for cars (Corvettes in particular), and loved watching NASCAR; but most of all David loved golfing. David was most at home outdoors whether he was walking along one of his favorite golf courses or enjoying happy hour in Sebring, FL where he would often stay for the winter. More than anything David was a family man, who always cherished the time he got to spend with his loved ones.
