Family and Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I have to pass along memorial service details for my beloved brother David.

As most of you know, David died last night around 11 pm and it really blindsided all of us.

We will celebrate David’s life with visitation starting at 2pm and a memorial service at 3 pm on Sunday,

September 3 at the Westerville Community United Church of Christ located at 770 County Line Road, Westerville, OH 43081. My parents and I would be honored if you’d stay after the service and join us in the fellowship hall for a light meal and some time to share and listen to stories about Dave.

The love you have all already extended to me and my family has meant more than you can know.

Please forward this email to any family and friends who’s email I did not have.

Dave Boone, our dear friend and former Arlington President has passed away

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

I deeply regret to inform you that Dave Boone has passed away. Dave was visiting family in Ohio, when he became sick. They took him to the hospital, where they discovered he had cancer. He died of heart failure at the hospital.

Funeral services will be held in Ohio on September 3rd. His family has asked if we could organize a Memorial Service in Dave’s honor in Maryland. I will send out more details when they are forwarded by his family.

Dave was president of Arlington for 8 years. He was a strong supporter of our Juniors program, our club events and the AGC. We could always count on Dave to be at all of our events to help wherever he was needed. Dave was a terrific guy and a wonderful friend. We will miss him dearly.

Please remember Dave and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you,
