David was born on March 22, 1956 to Willetta (Blackwell) Mitchell. David was raised by his grandparents Leon and Gladys Blackwell while his mother lived in Germany. He was married to Gabriele Blackwell on September 6, 1975. They share 3 sons who are their pride and joy. David was a man that didn’t know a stranger. He would do anything he could for anyone in need. He always had a story to tell and would always lend an ear or give a much needed hug. He loved spending time with his family and friends. He has taught several people to ride horses, ATVs, dirt bikes, how to hunt and handle a gun, and so much more. Everyone, no matter their age, had to go through training before doing anything around him. SAFETY was always his top priority. He also loved driving his 18-wheeler. Through a lot of hard work and determination, he was able to buy his own truck and started Blackwell Hauling LLC.
