David Gene Nolan,72, of Lake City was peacefully called home on July 28, 2022. Ol Man Dave,
as most everyone referred to him, was born October 29, 1949 in Devonia, TN to the late Luke
and Ruthie Nolan. He grew up in a large family learning the value of hard work and the power of
loved ones very early on in life. He spent his youth tinkering around fixing things and paving the
way for a future far greater than he could have ever imagined.
In 1968, he married the love of his life, Mary York. Together they raised 5 children. As a father,
David worked hard to provide for his family. His love for his family was rivaled only by his sense
of adventure. The two often coincided with one another as some of his best excursions were
those with his family on countless adventures.
He was always on the move and the beach was always at the top of his list. He never shied
away from a long drive or clearing his schedule if it meant some time in the sand with his
favorite people. He found refuge in the outdoors beyond the sand dunes by hunting, fishing, 4
wheeling and shooting.
When this jack-of-all-trades was not chasing down his next life experience, he could be found
fixing anything under the sun. If anyone had a question about how to fix anything, they knew
who to call. His knowledge of cars, trucks, plumbing, and household maintenance outshined any
Google search or Youtube video.
His heart of gold extended beyond his acts of service. He loved picking his guitar and making
up silly words to form his own hits.. To keep his energy up during his creative sessions a chew
of Stokerś and a cup of coffee were never too far out of reach. His charm, wit, and ever
supportive character translated easily to anyone fortunate enough to know him. His legacy will
live on through the many memories that we all have of him.
