David Allen Shoup, 59, passed away on Wednesday, November 15, 2023 at Morrow County Hospital.
David was born March 26, 1964 in Mansfield, Ohio. He was the son of Duwayne and Patricia (Hart) Shoup. A beloved son, faithful husband, devoted father, and loving grandfather who cherished time with his grandchildren.
David was a pillar of his community. For 18 years, he coached girls’ softball, and helped to rebuild the Savannah Ballpark. David was a Township Trustee for Clear Creek Township for over 20 years. As a member of the Faith Church, he was fundamental in the construction of their building. He was the owner and operator of his family owned business, Shoups Construction Inc. David was a teacher, friend, and mentor to many.
Some of David’s favorite things included fishing and hunting. With his love of farming, he measured success in hay bales and cattle. David enjoyed watching NASCAR in his spare time, not that he had much. He was the ultimate family man, never putting anything above his family.
