David Monte Johns III, loving father, brother, son, and friend, passed away on June 6, 2023, at 49. David had a passion for fishing, motorcycles, and spending quality time with his family. He cherished being a father to his children, Devin, Alyssa, Tyler, Koalah, and Orand.
David will be remembered for his warm heart, infectious laughter, and sense of humor. He had a knack for bringing people together and embraced life’s moments, whether on a fishing trip, riding his motorcycle, or enjoying time with loved ones.
He is survived by his father, David Monte Johns Jr.; mother, Esther Gatlin; sister, Patricia Taylor; children, Devin, Alyssa, Tyler, and Koalah; two grandchildren; nephews; and a wide circle of family and friends.
David’s spirit will forever inspire us. He will be deeply missed but remembered for his love, generosity, and the lasting impact he had on our lives.
The family is planning a commemoration of David’s life on a date yet to be decided. Instead of sending flowers, they request that you cherish the time you spend with your loved ones, as tomorrow is never guaranteed.
