Funeral services will be held at 10:00 am, on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, at Grace Community Church, 935 W Mescalero Rd, Roswell, NM 88201. David was born in Monterey, CA, to David Clinton and Vesta Buckingham on June 18, 1944. He grew up in Prairie City, IA, and then Denver, CO. That is where he met and married Dana Kay Richards. September 22, 2021 was their 55th anniversary. Between their meeting and nuptials, David served three years in the Army. After that he managed auto parts counters for a number of years, then prepared semi-truck and trailer repair estimates and then plumbing/HVAC parts management. He was very mechanically inclined and shared that gift with friends and family. When he wasn't working, David was very involved with his church family. He taught and participated in many Bible studies and services, including outreaches in many Colorado correctional facilities. David was also very involved in Christian Motorcyclist Association, often serving as the chaplain for the chapters he and Dana were involved in. David rode his motorcycle in many Veterans Day parades and stood in Patriot Guard flag lines for fallen veterans. David is survived by his wife Dana; daughters: Valerie Buckingham also of Roswell, Wendy Bezotte and husband Lee of Sherrard, IL; brother, Duane and wife Karen of Bonita, CA; grandchildren: Forrest and wife Kayleigh, Cole and Hudson Bezotte and Briana, Rachel and Christopher Bryan. Memorials may be given to Grace Community Church and Roswell VFW post 12184. The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Grace Community Church for their love and support throughout his membership with the church and at this time of his homecoming.
