David Lee Jeffrey blessed this world with his presence on April 3, 1986, meeting everyone with an infectious smile, endless attempts of covering 80’s rock songs, quirky one-liners and movie quotes. David departed to God’s care on December 20, 2019, where he most likely grabbed a harp and continued singing his favorite song, Ave Maria. It very well could have been La Grange by ZZ Top, No Diggity by The Cleverlys, or maybe Run DMC.
His joking antics, electric personality, and his passion for hot rods, and motorcycles were known by all who he direct messaged or texted photos of at random hours of the day. That’s what he loved, and he wanted to share that with everyone. It was his connection to those who loved him.
Favoring the rumble of a Harley-Davidson, or the lines of a 1932 Ford, David carried those exquisite tastes into his marriage to Brandy whom he loved, adored and endlessly pestered. Their daughter, Paisley will be born in the coming year where we all hope she can sing better than her Father. It’ll be perfectly OK, if she doesn’t.
His passing leaves a lesson for us all. Smile often, love your family, and in his words, “Vote Trump 2020, Baby!”
David is preceded in death by his father Mike Jeffrey, Grandparents Charles and Cathy Jeffrey, his aunt Angie Redfern and his grandfather Larry Redfern.
He is survived by his wife Brandy Jeffrey and baby to be, Paisley Jeffrey of Mansfield, his parents Lesli and Jason Baggett, and brother Greyson of Mansfield. David also leaves behind Grandparents Carol and Dave Edwards of Fort Smith, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins who will miss him dearly.
David’s wish was to be cremated however, there will be a celebration of his life on Monday, December 23, 2019 at 2:00 pm, at Fellowship Baptist Church in Witcherville, AR. Arrangements and cremation are being entrusted to the Heritage Memorial Funeral Home in Waldron, Arkansas.
For those wishing to send an expression of sympathy, the family would appreciate living plants that can grow into a memorial garden for baby Paisley.
