David R. Abbott, age 69, of Upper Sandusky, died Friday, August 28, 2020 at his home.

David was born April 27, 1951 in Marion, Ohio to two loving, caring, and devout parents Richard and Margaret Abbott.  Along with his parents, David is survived by 2 sisters Patricia (Bryan) Higley, Brevard, NC and Nancy (Tom) Howlett, Sweetwater, Texas; 2 brothers Ron (Cathy) Abbott, La Rue, Ohio and Mike (Malou) Abbott, San Angelo, Texas.  He also is survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

David graduated from Pleasant High School in 1969 where he was involved in track and football.  He later graduated from Marion Technical College with an AAS in Electrical/Electronics.

David worked with his father at different family businesses including Abbott&Co., Prospect, Ohio, Indian Mill Campground, Upper Sandusky, Ohio, and building and remodeling several houses.  David also worked at Marion Power Shovel, Servex Electronics, and retired from The Timken Roller Bearing Company, Bucyrus, Ohio.

David served in the US Navy Data Systems.  Was a life member of Amvets Post 777, Upper Sandusky, Ohio, past member of Wyandot Squares, and a past member of Central Christian Church, Marion, Ohio, where he was baptized.

  • Sorry to hear about the loss of Dave. We connected on Facebook and anytime I posted a photo he would almost without fail “like” it and he never forgot my birthday. I also saw a post today about how much Dave supported Dennis Jesse’s Pleasant Alumni Annual Reunions to help support Pleasant Schools. Dennis posted that Dave would be one of the first to sign up and send him notes of encouragement to continue having the reunions. Rest In Peace, Dave. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

  • Dareld and I send our deepest heartfelt sympathies to Dick and Marge and to Mike, Ron, Nancy and Patricia. We too connected on Facebook and he tried to keep me abreast of the expanding Abbott clan. I will miss his humor and quick wit.
    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the whole family…he will be sorely missed by all.
