David Battey Was

David F. Battey,

He was a lot of things in 85 years

He was a father, a grandfather, a husband, a friend.

He was a learner, a doer, a thinker.

He was a storyteller, a collector.

He was a flyer, a teacher, a driver.

He was inspirational, unforgettable, knowledgeable.

He was kind, talkative, forgiving, patient.

He was legacy leaving, thought provoking, laughter inducing.

He was so many amazing and memorable things,

But most importantly,

He was Grampy
