David Lee Tumey

David Lee Tumey went to be with our Lord February 13, 2022. Born December 29, 1967, to Samuel C. Tumey and Mary L. Tumey, David was the youngest of 7 children or as he liked to joke “The only child of 7”.

David accomplished many things in his short time on this earth. He was an expert in shoeing and training horses however, he would always remind us “I’m not a cowboy, my dad is the cowboy”. He had the honor of achieving the degree of a Master Mason in the Masonic lodge and carried the honor proudly. Of course, anyone that knew him would tell you that he considered his greatest accomplishments to be his 2 children and having the privilege of helping to raise his grandchildren.

David was a man of many talents. From working on houses and cars to owning and running a bar to shoeing and training horses. There was nothing he couldn’t accomplish, especially when it came to lending a helping hand to family and friends. If he wasn’t sure he would say “let me read up on it and I will be over to help”. David loved people. He loved to “bulls**t over a beer”, have a dance with a nice gal, and listen to good music with a buddy. He simply never met a stranger. His kind and genuine personality will be missed dearly by all.

He is Preceded in death by his father Samuel C. Tumey and brother Samuel Tumey III. He leaves behind his two children Chance Tumey and Amber (Tumey) Lopez, Two grandchildren Damien (Bug) Tumey and Kenzie (Stinker butt) Tumey, his mother Mary Tumey, 5 siblings, and an abundance of nieces and nephews. He sure did love us all.

Uncle David I love you and miss you! You would always stay in contact with me. When I would post something when I was mad or upset you would write me and tell me that we are a STRONG FAMILY and we would never let anyone beat us down. Please keep watch over us all as we are struggling with losing you. Please give all of our loved ones hugs from us down here! Tammy and I talk about you all the time and I wish you could of met her! But that didn\'t stop you from telling her you loved her!! Rest In Peace Uncle David ❤️
Love your Nieces

David and I had a special bond. When he was little I would bite him on the cheek even as a grown man when I would see him he would come up to me and turn his cheek to me and say here it is aunt Debbie and have a bug smile on his face. Going to miss him so much. Love Aunt Debbie
