David Lee Denny, a resident of Tarkington Prairie, Texas, passed away at his home on Sunday, October 15, 2023, at the age of 67. He was born on December 14, 1955, in Indiana to parents Robert Denny and Hazel Jean Blue Denny.
As a young man, David served his country in the United States Army and was a proud Vietnam veteran. After the military he worked as a welder and a pipefitter, both of which would become his lifelong profession. Whether it was a good day fishing or watching the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night football, David enjoyed life. He also loved his family deeply and cherished the times spent with them at family get togethers or barbeques at his house. He will be missed greatly, and he leaves behind a void in the hearts of all who knew him.
