WISE, VA - David Carl Holbrook, 61, went home to be with Jesus, his Lord and Savior, on Friday, April 19, 2019, two years following his diagnosis of ALS.

While ALS is a horrific disease, it provided opportunity for many to share their love and respect for David which enriched these years. He lived a faithful, courageous life that inspired many. Throughout his life David was a loving, supportive husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. His smile was bright, his laugh contagious and his connection with children heartwarming. David was a 35 year, valued employee of Morgan McClure Chevrolet in Coeburn, VA. He devolved a special brotherly bond with the owner, Tim Morgan and considered many other fellow employees close family. He was a faithful member of the Esserville Community Church in Norton, VA where he served and attended for more than 30 years.
