Gambier, Ohio

David Joseph Fidler, age 53, of Gambier, Ohio, passed away peacefully Thursday, March 8th 2018 at home with family by his side after a short battle with cancer. He was born September 24th 1964 in Barberton, Ohio, to Joseph and Lena (Gardner) Fidler.

David was a 20 year veteran of the United States Army. He retired to South Carolina, and returned home to Ohio 2 years ago.  At any given time you could find David tinkering with car parts or parked by a fire in the sticks. He loved his family and was loved fiercely in return.

He was preceded in death by his father Joseph Frederick Fidler.

David is survived by his mother Lena Fidler; brothers, James and John Fidler; a sister, Sherry Fidler; a sister-in-law, Rebecca Casey; and too many nieces and nephews to count.

A celebration of life will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to: American Cancer Society Central Region-Knox 5555 Franz Rd. Dublin, Ohio 43017.
