David was always a favorite when he came to Pumps Of Okla to buy his supplies. Always a kind word and a smile. There will come a time this writer and David can set down and discuss pumps for a thousand years in the presence of our precious Lord. Way to go David. Ted And Sherry Zachary.

I first met David when I spotted him walking around our acreage in Piedmont, looking for a place he thought would yield water because we desperately needed a fresh water well. Frank had known him in high school, so with our call for help a long renewed friendship began. We attended Metro as did the Poindexters and two of our boys, his Josh and our Rob, were good friends.

What a happy man! I loved him! Always his smile and welcoming demeanor invited a long chat and lots of laughter ... we had many through the years out in the pastures under that blazing Oklahoma sun.

Frank and I are sorry your dad is gone and ask the Lord to give you a deep sense of His Presence as comfort and sharing of wonderful memories from the many who also loved Big Dave to salve your loss.

David Allen Poindexter. Known to his close friends as "BIG DAVE". Known to Josh and I as "DAD". David was a big guy but his heart was bigger. I am very sad but I know there is a big reunion in Heaven today. It’s hard to believe both of my parents are gone but I know I will see them again. I can proudly say that I had the best parents in the world. They provided everything to us and gave us everything we needed: love, compassion, advice, help, care, etc. They were so much fun and could make everyone laugh until they cried. It makes my smile knowing that my dad is reunited with my mom today. We love you dad! We will miss you tremendously! Today the streets of gold are paved with “hearts” ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

My dad left us many audio recordings that I have been listening to for the past 3 days. They are priceless and such a special gift to Josh and I. Here is a message that David wanted me to share with his friends and family:

Well the BIG GUY is gone. Don’t feel sorry for me! I am in the presence of the Lord! It is wonderful in Heaven and I have lots of friends up here. Love and laughter is everywhere. I’ve already given big hugs to my parents and Penney (and “Yes” she still has the same laugh). RJ is hilarious and still cusses like a sailor and Bill Kessler and I are still catching up. Nothing hurts and I am strong again. I can tie my shoes without passing out and I’m no longer known as “BIG DAVE” - I am now medium Dave! I have many appointments set up to meet the people I’ve always admired. I’m really looking forward to talking to Noah about his Ark. The one thing I want really everyone to know is that the most important thing you will ever do in your life is accept Christ as your personal Savior. Trust me. I love all of you and cherish all of our relationships - Big Dave

David was a friend to everyone who knew him. Since high school at Old Putnam City, David kept in contact with all of his classmates, and knew their whereabouts. David was a frequent attendee at the PC Lunch Bunch for those classes of 1959-1965, and only until recently was he not able to attend.

David will be missed greatly as everyone loved him. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and may God bless all of you during this time of sorrow. We share your loss to a fine man and a great classmate.

Even though I did not know David, I wanted to give my most heartfelt sympathy to all of his family. May you find comfort in your special memories. True, remembering those times may be painful at first, but in time, those memories will help you to heal. So, while grief at the loss of your dear David is certainly great, the joy you will have at welcoming him back in the resurrection will be so much greater! Yes, there will be a time when you can see your loved ones who have died again. In the Bible, John 5:28 says “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” Also, Psalms 37:29 says “The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.” How comforting to know that David is only resting, just sleeping in death, waiting to be resurrected on earth, by God and finally see all those that he loved, again. May you also find comfort in this scripture, God “will swallow up death forever, [He] will wipe away the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) Can you see with your mind’s eye: death will be completely gone, living forever on a paradise earth and never having to live without our loved ones ever again.
With Deepest Sympathy,
The Ward Family
