Dear Carole and Family, I was saddened to hear of Dave's passing. We would continue to run into one another even after I moved from The Renaissance. He always had a smile and friendly word. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

On Wednesday, September 16, 2015, David Warren Wakefield, treasured husband, father and grandfather, passed away peacefully in his sleep. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Carole, his son Craig, daughter and son-in-law Amy and David Vogel and his beloved 5 granddaughters: Madison, 16, Ryan, 12, Natalie, 11, Sophia, 9 and Ella Grace, 2.
David was a man of great integrity, wisdom, generosity and humor. He made an impact on all who met him, with his ideas, jokes and profound intelligence. He graduated from Georgia Tech in 1967. He entered the Navy as a Lieutenant and served as a Naval Aviator from 1967-1971.
He ran several successful companies; all in the Power Generation and Process Industry and his knowledge of this business cannot be duplicated. His reputation for fair-mindedness and gracious conduct is felt by all who worked with and for him. While business was his focus, family was his life. He loved his wife, his children and was enormously proud of all of his granddaughters. He saw the blessing and gift they were to his life and, just like with his children, he was a committed presence in their lives.
He was also a man of deep faith, especially in his time as a member of St. Luke’s United Methodist. He always wore a gold Number One pin on his collar. When he was asked about it, he simply said, “It reminds me to keep the Lord first.” He taught so many the meaning of a well-lived life, how to have fun here and now and the importance of living in light of eternity. He will be greatly missed and loving remembered.
A Memorial service is being held on Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015 at 10 am at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to St. Luke’s United Methodist Church (Building Fund in the memo, www.stlukesmethodist.org under “giving.”) or PKD Foundation, www.pkdcure.org.
