My special son, David Allen Ledford, 58, of Elizabethton, passed away on June 18, 2022. He was a gift from God, so God felt it was time to take him home. My heart is broken but I know God knows best in all our lives. All his disabilities are healed. I know he can walk again and be happy with his loved ones gone on before him. He is at rest. See you again my precious son.
David attended Lynn Valley Baptist Church for the last 17 years and loved his church family. He was an avid die-cast car collector and loved cats.
