David Chris Kingsbury, a longtime resident of Kettle Falls, passed away on June 7, 2012 in Spokane. David was born on June 10, 1960 in Los Angeles, CA.
He was raised by his father, Larry Horton, and mother, Virginia, in California. He resided in several California communities growing up. Their family traveled often to fulfill obligations of work.
David graduated from high school and the continued his education in trade school. He married Margarita Campos on Sept. 25, 1978 in Kettle Falls. The couple soon began a family. David had begun work at the age of 15 in the local rockery and by the time he was 23, had purchased his own truck and was making local deliveries and long haul trips with cargo that ranged from road barriers to chicken manure.
He was very gifted and could build, rebuild, repair, overhaul, create and engineer projects within his mind with astounding practical accuracy. He and Margarita moved with their family to Washington. David traveled back and forth between California and Washington where work opportunities were available. While in Washington, David earned his hazardous product transportation certification and worked for Northern EnÂ¬ergy as a propane hauler and installer. He also worked alongside his family in Kingsbury Construction, hauling mobile homes, installing water and septic systems, constructing pole buildings and decks and working any project in between.
David was a man always on the move, with Christ as his guide. His faith was his inspiration and his family his foundation. David was his familyâ€™s consummate provider, offering his support on every issue whether legal, medical, monetary, mechanical, emotional or spiritual. David was called by many names: friend, buddy, prayer partner, servant of others, husband, dad and â€śPoppyâ€ť, all of which were answered with love and respect. He enjoyed camping, boating, taking â€śshortcutsâ€ť home, leading prayer meetings, receiving praise reports and studying his Bible. David was preceded in death by mother, father, brothers, Rudy and Raymond, and by a brother-in-law, Johnny.
