  • Guestbook
David Noah Arnpriester of Royse City, TX, died in the early hours of May 14, 2020 in Dallas, TX at the age of 66, following an extended battle with stage IV prostate cancer.

David is survived by his three daughters, Shayna-Nicole Walker and her husband Dustin, Catherine Arnpriester and her husband Thiago, and Abby Simmonds and her husband Matt; his grandchildren: Zachary, Lukas, Kaleb, Micah, Allie, and Elsie; and his siblings: Marvin, Donna, Marilyn, Paul, Rachel, Lois, Arlene and Teresa.

David was born on December 12, 1953 in Clayton, NM to Noah and Hazel Arnpriester, the seventh of nine children. He graduated in 1972 from North Platte High School. He worked as an electric and mechanical engineer in various industries, including both the energy and government sectors for over 30 years. On May 25, 1985, he married Debbie Dalcour. Their 14-year union produced his three daughters, who were the most important part of his life.
David was a devoted father, brother and son. He enjoyed country music, sports, shooting, watching football games, and spending time with his family. He loved having a project, whether it was working on his truck or installing a new set of shelves. He was always supportive, generous, and quick to make a joke.

He endured his battle with cancer with tenacity and without complaint. He always put on a brave face, even while experiencing both pain and fear. He touched the lives of all who knew him. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

A memorial service is scheduled for 10:00 am on May 20, 2020 at Venue on Broadway, 2202 Broadway, Lubbock, Texas 79401.

I grew up with six sisters and two brothers. That’s how I learned to dance – waiting for the bathroom , usually after David was done but
A big piece of my heart will now live in heaven and that is my brother David! David would always stick up for you even if no one else would ! Once a brother, always a brother, no matter the distance, no matter our differences and no matter the issue because I had a brother, I always had a best friend.
It is said that God blesses him who helps his brother . Thank you David for your goodness and brotherly love and blessings you brought to my life . Rest In Peace David bro . BEST BROTHER EVER!!

David was a wonderful and devoted father. He was always there for our girls and never let them down. He was compassionate and always wanted to make sure people around him were happy and comfortable. He was deeply loved by his girls and will be missed.

David was so easy to love and connect with even long distance. He shared a room with my Dad all those years ago in Hereford while we were in transition and they would tell fond stories of those days. The reunions didnt occur often enough, but Facebook kept us in touch. My heart and prayers to you dear cousins as you say goodbye to your brother,father and friend. ❤❤❤

Going to miss my Uncle David. Growing up I remember him being the life of the party personality that made family reunions fun! It was great to see him with his girls and he did so love being a dad & grandpa - that was apparent just watching him with his family!
