November 24, 1955 - October 13, 2017
David Arthur Dear 61, of Oxford, Ga passed away unexpectedly on October 13th. David was born in Whittier, California on November 24, 1955 to Samuel Daniel Dear and Elaine Louise Michaelson, one of 8 children. As a child David showed an early aptitude for all things mechanical. It was no surprise that he was a licensed general contractor, and licensed electrical contractor, something he took great pride in. He worked for Fag Bearing for a time when his children were small but he kept returning to what he loved. He also had a passion for classic cars and morotcycles and built and owned many of them throughout his life. David also loved and had a vast knowledge of music and it was always playing in the background. His fondest stories though were those of his children when they were small. He loved being a father to his daughter Sharon Dear and his son David Daniel Dear. He left California and moved to Georgia in 2010, where he met and fell in love with Kathy Laura Tedder. They were married on April 17, 2012 in Ephiphany Lutheran Church in Conyers. David is survived by his loving wife, Kathy, his children Sharon and David D Dear, his siblings Debra Crane (Scott), Darlene Dear, Shawn Dear, Steve Dear, his step son Jon Marc Tedder (Jennifer), step daughter Krista Holland (Jeremy) and grandchildren Jon Tedder, Abigail Tedder, Gavin Phillips (Samantha), Garrett Phillilps, and Lindy Grace Phillips, many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brothers Sam Jr, Scott Dear, and a sister, Donna Maria Rashidinejad. A memorial is being planned at a later date.
