David Edward Edgmon, age 64, of Mossville, closed his eyes here in his earthly home for the last time on Thursday, June 6 (2019).
He was born on May 6, 1955, in Harrison, the oldest child of John Edward "J.E." and Goldie Mae (Dyer) Edgmon.
David had worked as a truck driver for many years, hauling lumber for F&H Lumber. He had lived most of his life in Newton County and was a member of the Lone Beech United Baptist Church.
David loved the Lord and loved serving Him. He was saved on August 11, 2012, during a revival at Mossville United Baptist Church and answered his calling in 2016 to preach. He was ordained as a minister of the gospel in 2017 just days after being diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer that had already spread to his brain. He never missed an opportunity to witness for the Lord, be it at the oncology clinic or just wherever he had the opportunity. He was very well respected in the community. David pastored the Wayton United Baptist Church from September 2017 until May 2019 when his health declined.
He was married to Patricia Gail "Patsy" Criss on Aug. 17, 1974, in Johnson County and they renewed their wedding vows on Jan. 5 (2019) to celebrate almost 45 years of marriage.
He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters, Gaylene Holt and Judy Kay Edgmon; one brother, Kevin Edgmon; one niece, Jessica Hampton; and his grandparents, Jesse and Martha (Watson) Edgmon and David and Verdie (Bledsoe) Dyer.
Survivors are his wife, Patsy; his children, Vanessa and Shannon Gibbins, of Compton, Alison and Daniel Klatt, of Green Forest, and Leann and Kevin Harp, of Harrison; his brothers, Marty and Janie Edgmon, of Mossville, and Kendall and Lacey Edgmon, of Low Gap; his sisters, Virdia and Johnny Hampton, of Low Gap, Vicki and Jeff Chandler, of Rogers, and Michele and Joey Fierro, of Low Gap; his grandchildren, David Evan and Addieline, Justin and Kelsey, Kevin and Emily, Shayna and Dallas, Jarod and Hannah, Lane and Chase Gibbins; his great-grandchildren, Mason, Kenzley, Rilynn, Whyatt Owen and Sadie Mae due in September; three step-grandchildren and three step-great-grandchildren, several aunts and uncles, many cousins, nephews, nieces and friends.
