DALLAS, Texas — David William Brumfield, born on Sept. 15, 1990 in Dallas, Texas, the son of Pamela Lynn and Edward Lee Brumfield, passed on Oct. 15.
David was a graduate of Plano East High School where he was a varsity wrestler. David was in his fourth year attending Oklahoma State University and a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity. He recently changed his major to pre-med and planned on serving his country after graduating in the Army Rangers. David was a wonderful bright young man that loved his family, enjoyed life, and cherished his many friends. He was a leader and was very focused on his next journey in life as he prepared for his postgraduate professional studies. David was a positive person that loved life, his dog, sports, hunting and fishing. David has left us much too early, however the family takes comfort knowing his Christian faith was secure as he goes to walk with the Lord. He will be greatly missed by all and the world will be a lesser place.
David is survived by his grandmother Elsie Eilts of Albert, along with his mother and father, Plano, Texas; his brother James Daniel and sisters Emily Marie and Julie Ann Beichler, along with her husband, Eric William Beichler and their three children. David is also survived by Tommy and Vickey Brumfield, Stillwater, Okla.; Deb and Terry Hoffman, Albert; Galen Eilts, Jefferson City, Tenn.; and Laurie Eilts, Pratt; including his many cousins, nieces and nephews.
