  • Numerous nieces & nephews (and their spouses & children): Sandy, Kelly, Chevy, Sean, and Shannon
  • Father: John Ellis​

Cause of death: 

We are not certain of the cause at this time, it was either a massive heart attack or pulmonary embolism. It was sudden, without warning, quick, and he was not alone, he was with one of his best friends Kirk Brewer. David passed from this life to the next after finishing his work of singing, playing keyboards, praying & loving on all of the people at the John 316 Mission.”

David was a graduate of Rhema Bible Training College in Tulsa, OK. He was a minister & praise and worship leader who blessed others with his gifts, talents & absolute love for each and every person he ever met! He was also a massage therapist who prayed healing over each of his clients! He will be missed!!!
