David graced this earth from December 15, 1931 until August 30, 2021. Born and raised in Mantua and Brigham City, Utah with parents, Lorin and Mary. David’s National Guard unit was activated and served in the Korean Conflict, Army Field Artillery. Later, he was awarded the Korean Ambassador for Peace Medal. He was grateful for the GI bill which afforded him the opportunity to attend and graduate at Utah State University. Pi Alpha to his beloved SAE fraternity brothers. He loved USU and was active in various student government and service, including student body officer and Homecoming Chair. He loved Aggie football, supported scholarships for the Women’s Center and Aggie athletics, and was an Old Main Society member. David worked in business throughout his career ending as owner of David L Jeppesen Insurance Agency. David’s life was filled with his joy for cars, especially his “little” T-Birds and jazz music, (Four Freshmen, Stan Kenton). While he enjoyed his physical workouts at the Sports Mall, he especially worked out more with the social contacts. He loved reading about World War II history, his NY Yankees, the Jazz, his Aggies and memorable cruises and travel throughout the world. David lived his life as a gentle man. His human frailties were surpassed by his generosity and kind spirit, his ability to tell it like it was and give great advice, his quick wit, humor, his intense love of life (and ice cream), and the love for his precious kitties. David’s pride and legacy are his children, Jill (Kelly) and Jeffrey David Jeppesen along with his grandchildren. Most of all, he adored and was adored by the love of his life, Lynda, for nearly 41 years. On the wings of angels, the world is a better place because of his presence. He lives with us always and reminds us, To Keep Our Socks Up!\r\n\r\nThank you to all who supported his comfort, especially CNS, and Brandon, #1 grandson. He would want you to make a difference to animals and contribute to Best Friends.
