I grew up next door to David and his brothers, they are much older than me. One of my earliest memories is David scaring me with a Tarantula spider and then telling me there was nothing to be scared of. I thought he was so cool one Halloween when he did make up for us with nothing more than toilet paper, syrup, and some red makeup. He was always one if thr nicest guys I knew.

My two youger brothers, Keith and Tim, and I grew up with David, Jonathan, and Robert Joyner. We went to First Assembly of God, and spent a lot of time together otherwise. All three of the Joyner's were more like extended family than good friends. I remember coming to El Dorado 20 or so years ago for the music festival and realized some person in a cartoon costume was tailing me around, not saying anything, just standing there. I couldn't see their face due to the costume. When he got real close and said "Hi Dennis" I really freaked out. Then David pulled his costume head off, laughing, and talked a long time. That was David's way, his character, and how I'll always remember him, and miss him. I pray for all his family.

David and I go way back., all the way to when he and his brother, Jonathan were in high school and I taught there. David was a very unique guy. He did a mean Richard Nixon impression and was quite a performer. Always friendly and outgoing. My wife helps prepare and serve a meal at hospice once a month. David came up to her and engaged her in a conversation the last time she was there. She told me about it later and remarked about his kindness. He will be missed. God be with his family in this difficult time.

I have fond memories of growing up with David at First Assembly. He, Jonathan, & Robert kept us entertained; especially as teenagers, with all the hilarious films they “produced “ & showed at youth functions.
My husband & I moved back to El Dorado recently after living away for almost 40 years. On our first Sunday back home, after Worship, David stopped by to welcome us back. What a gracious & loving gesture! That’s who he was. He will be missed.

David is one of the greatest men I have ever met. His focus on putting his family and others before his needs was evident the moment I met him. He had a heart and soul of pure gold and tried to keep things very light for those around him. His humor, intelligence and love radiated throughout everyone who was lucky enough to know him. I know he will continue to take care of his family up above.

To all the family we send our love and prayers. Seems like yesterday we were all together enjoying health and fellowship. So many wonderful memories yet time and health pass so quickly. This short life is only a preparation for our eternal reward. Thankfully, we have hope in Christ Jesus our Lord. May the Holy Spirit comfort you during this difficult time. Our love, prayers, and thoughts are with you all.

David created so many memories for my two brothers and me. He made our youth special. He was our Christian brother and a gift from God to all of us. He was fun to be with, full of imagination, and creative. Growing up with David (and—bonus—with Jonathan and Robert too) led to adventures I won’t forget. And—bonus—God put Noweeta there to provide adult supervision. I look forward to seeing David in Heaven.

David was definitely gifted with a talent to entertain and bring smiles to people. But his greatest gift was his faith and love of God, as all the Joyner family. It was a privilege to have known him.
