FAIRFIELD GLADE, Tenn. [mdash] David L. DeBolt, 76, formerly of Anderson, passed away Oct. 29, 2018, at the Cumberland House Hospice in Crossville, Tennessee, from leukemia/MDS syndrome. David was born May 27, 1942, in Anderson, Indiana. He was a 1960 graduate of Anderson High School.
In 1995, David retired from General Motors after almost 40 years of service in skilled trades and plant maintenance supervision.
David is survived by his wife of 35 years, Bess DeBolt; sons, Gary (wife, Lorri) DeBolt, Greg (wife, Sonja) DeBolt, Scott DeHart, Mike (wife, Angie) DeHart and Jonathon (wife, Kelli) DeHart; grandchildren, Lyndsie, Sara, Dylan, Emaliegh, Spence, Dakota, Cheyenne and Brook; great-grandchildren, Madisyn, Chloe, Gabriel and Marleigh; cousin, Barbara (husband, Bill) Glaze; and close family friends, Fred and Diane Haney, Tom and Butch Tuttle, Dave and Sally Kowalski, Fred and Joan Dunn, and Joan Bonisa.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Jane Summers; grandmother, Tillie Flynn; aunts, Nancy Meek and Margaret Skouden; and cousin, Char-Ann Herron.
He was an avid golfer and moved to Fairfield Glade, Tennessee, in 1996 so he could enjoy, "Another beautiful day on the mountain." During his time at Fairfield Glade, David and Bess enjoyed their time golfing and spending time with their many friends. David was also a lifelong member of the Elks Lodge.
A celebration of David's life will take place Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018, at Fairfield Glade Community and Conference Center, 128 Stonehenge Drive, Crossville, Tennessee, at 5 p.m.

I shared many good times with David as we graduated together. Sorry to hear of his passing. My husband and I live in OH and I haven't seen David in many years but do have many good memories!
