David Clinton Ferrier, Jr.

God blessed this world with his birth June 10, 1946 and he went to be with his Lord and Savior December 31, 2011 at the age of 65. He was born in Norfolk, NE to David Clinton Ferrier, Sr. deceased and Norma Emma Niemann deceased. As a child Dave lived in Sioux City where his three siblings were born. In his later childhood he lived in Pueblo, CO and then Security, CO where he graduated from Widefield High School in 1965. He joined the Naval Reserves and spent 12 years proudly serving his country on either active or reserve duty in the Navy. During his military career he was a medic as well as a fireman. During his time in the military he met and married Lynn Rowan. They resided in Memphis, TN. After retirement Dave studied at Memphis State University/University of Memphis. He then began his lifelong career as an Associate Professor Southwest Tennessee Community College formerly Memphis Tech. where he taught from July 1972 to June 2003 when he retired. Even though Lynn and Dave divorced they shared a great joy and pride in their two children Douglas born October 8, 1972 and Katherine born April 9. Dave enjoyed a variety of activities including texting, reading books, watching tv mainly sports and documentaries, watching movies, dining out, cooking, surfing the internet, photography, listening to music, and attending church. He always had time for his friends and his family. He loved to extend a smile, conversation, and comfort to all he met. He offered excellent advice when asked and enjoyed hearing about people's lives. He was an avid college sports fan and the  Memphis StateTigers were his favorite teams. When he watched any game he didn't care who won or lost as long as it was a good game. Dave was quick to forgive and wanted people to be happy. He was very proud of his children and his grandchildren. He was grateful for all the time spent with each one of them. He could be quite stubborn, yet he always said how grateful and compassionate Katherine was to have taken care of him after his accident in 1999. The accident forever changed his life and perhaps set the course for what would ultimately be what ended his life. He never fully recovered from his injuries and spent the next 12 years fighting illness after illness. In 2009 Dave miraculously woke up from a year long coma and we were blessed with 2 more years with him. He often told people that he'd had a good life and to always stop and smell the roses. In 2010 he relocated from his beloved Memphis back to his childhood city of Colorado Springs. His goal was to be closer to his mother so he could reconcile past differences and spend time with her. She passed away just 7 months later in May 2011. Dave loved his view of Pikes Peak and loved to tell everyone about it and each and every morning he would send a group text saying what a beautiful morning it was. Dave is survived by his brothers' William Bruce, and Larry Dean; his sister Susan Ottinger and her husband Larry; his two children Douglas and his wife Debi and Katherine and her husband Reginald; his five grandchildren Christopher, Norman, Stephanie, Katie, and Bobby Ferrier; great-grandchildren Sophia Alexandra; his nephews Shawn and Dennis Ottinger, Jason and Jeff Ferrier; his nieces Julie and Jody Ferrier and Peggy Walden; his great-nephews Kyle, Morgan, and Holden Ottinger, Joseph, David, Nicholas and Callaen Ferrier, Tristen Madden; and his great-nieces Samantha Ferrier, Ashley Madden, Kaitlin and Brittany Ottinger.
