David Archer Atwood departed this life on Sunday, June 10.

He left behind his father, Greg; his mother, Jessica; his brothers, Richard, Robert and Daniel; and his grandparents, Kenneth and Pat Atwood; along with additional extended family.

David was an outgoing and adventurous personality who enjoyed making people laugh and breaking the tension in any circumstance. His tender heart and compassion were no secret to those close to him. Having him turn and give a goofy grin seemed to brighten any room, as any patron of the Emerald Princess or anyone in his Scout Troop 204 would tell you. He had a talent for making life exciting, and living through his very adventurous spirit. David will be missed greatly by his family and friends.

Visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. today (Wednesday) at Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home, and the funeral will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home.

There will be a graveside service after the funeral at Ebenezer Cemetery, in Eulonia, Ga.

Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home, www.edomillerandsons.com, is in charge of the arrangements.
