“THAT’S ALL FOLKS!”
David was born May 25, 1953 in Colville, WA, and left us on July 15, 2013, at beautiful Coeur d’Alene River in Kingston, Idaho.
David grew up in Colville and graduated from Colville High School in 1971.
He was the “most skilled” finish carpenter around and worked for many general contractors around the area, as well as his own businesses.
David was an outdoorsman to the max.
He very much enjoyed camping, hiking, and taking his snowmobile out, just being outdoors in general was a great pleasure to him.
He took everything in and enjoyed relaying his knowledge to anyone that was with him.
He was well known for his caring personality, hilarious sense of humor, and numerous “Dave-isms” such as “s**t and fall back”.
A great friend, son, and altogether good person who was honest to a fault and was not afraid to fight for what was right.
He was a devout cat lover and very much missed his two favorite feline friends, Buckwheat and Howie.
Dave is survived by his son Christopher Sphuler, brother Ron Dixon, Colville, WA and Sister Donna Cromeens, Denver, CO.
He will also be greatly missed by his dear friends who considered him family, Phyllis Dunlap, Rob King and Dawn Zoesch and their children, Ashton and Karissa, and the infamous Mr. Johnny Carter.
Rest in peace our friend, in the arms of your loving mother and other loved ones.
We will miss you terribly but know we will see you again.
Until then, we look forward to your ceiling hugs!
At his request, no services will be held.
