Stayton – David, 74, was born on December 10, 1944 in Hartford, CT and died from complications of heart and renal failure on August 24, 2019 in Stayton.  His last day was spent peacefully in his home surrounded by his beloved family and special friends.

David was born and raised in Plainville, CT. He served in the US Marine Corp from 1962-1966.  He married Melissa “Missy” Deutsch on April 5, 1969 in Brewster, NY.  In 1980 he felt a call from The Lord to move his family to Oregon. David and Missy completely restored a beautiful 1890s home set on five acres on Ridge Drive in Scio.  They raised their family and resided in this home for 24 years before moving to Stayton.

He loved old cars and could easily identify any car manufactured during the 1950s and 1960s.

David leaves behind the love of his life, his wife, Missy of Stayton; grown children, Lisa (Rod) Poppleton of Beaverton, Marci (Durrel) Jordan of Stayton, and Don (Tracy) Sturgeon of Shaw; seven grandchildren; his twin brother, Frank Sturgeon of Bristol, CT; and his sister, Helen Jordan of Hendersonville, NC. He was preceded in death by parents Peter and Harriet Sturgeon; brothers, Art and Donny; and sisters, Penny and Ruth.
