Dad's Obituary

Things are hectic. There is so much I want to do on this blog, from posting pictures to recording the final details of my Daddy's passing. But there is not time right now. So I will hold those special thoughts and simply post his obituary...it barely does him justice. But who can afford to write a whole paper dedicated solely to one man's obit?


David G. Legge, of Worthington, Ohio passed peacefully on Tuesday, December 16th, 2008 after a courageous battle with cancer. He leaves to cherish his memory his wife Laura, daughter Abby (Eli) Bowman, son and daughter by marriage, Seth (Kristi) McKenzie and Whitney (James) Sullinger, beloved grandchildren Olivia Ruth and Charles David Bowman, Jalen and Jaden Sullinger and Cooper and Miller McKenzie, sisters & brother, Shirlene Walters of Bonita Springs, Florida, Mike (Sandy) Legge of Indianapolis, Indiana, Linda (Bud) Davis of Cleveland, Tennessee, Mary (Joe) Day of Springfield, Ohio, uncle Bill (Marcia) Legge of Springfield, Ohio, mother- in- law Martha Burton, brother and sister- in- law, Russ and Lindsey Kegley and numerous cousins, 15 nieces and nephews, 32 great nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by parents Gene and Shirley Legge, maternal grandparents Elmer and Marie Gerdt, paternal grandparents Walter and Marguerite Legge and brother-in-law Donald Walters. David was a graduate of Catholic Central High School in Springfield, Ohio, Murray State University and Ball State University. David was an educator for over 25 years, teaching the past 21 years in the South-Western City School District. David was an avid Ohio State Buckeyes fan and loved the Cincinnati Bengals and Reds. He enjoyed working with children, playing golf and spending time with his family at Torch Lake, Michigan. A memorial service will be held at Worthington Presbyterian Church in Worthington, Ohio at 1:00pm Saturday, December 20th, 2008. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the David Legge Youth Sports Foundation, P.O. Box 605 Worthington, Ohio 43085. Additionally, the family suggests random acts of kindness be made in memory of David.
