David Paul Cross (December 24, 1960 — March 14, 2019)

David was born December 24th, 1960, to Webster & June Cross in Rifle, Colorado, and passed away unexpectedly on March 14, 2019.

He and his one brother, Jim, grew up in New Castle and went to school there, as well as Rifle.

David worked at Burger Chef and Vickers then was a manager at McDonald’s for many years as well as the Mall 3 Theater in Glenwood. He studied long nights getting a degree that got him a job at Blizzard Internet Marketing, which was his last job.

He spent the final years of his life living with and taking care of his mother.

He loved all aspects of music; playing guitars, banjos, and singing with friends and family.

He also was an avid photographer who enjoyed taking pictures of trains and other unique settings while always making it outside when he was able.

David was a good son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend to many, he will be dearly missed by all.

He is survived by his mother June Cross; brother Jim Cross; nieces Tanya (Cross) Alexander and Jenny Cross; great-nephews Austin and Hayden Alexander; as well as many other family members and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father Webster Cross and nephew Gregory Cross.

He is at peace now with his lord; there is a place of quiet rest near to the Heart of God. A celebration of David’s life will take place at New Hope Church in New Castle on April 27 at 11am; a meal will follow.
