David W. Nolan, 59, Anderson, passed away Friday, Nov. 24,2017 at Community Hospital of Anderson after a sudden illness.
He was born Oct. 12, 1958, in Anderson, to Jesse W. and Betty L. (Givens) Nolan, and lived in the Anderson/Pendleton area most of his life.
He was a 1977 graduate of Pendleton Heights High School and attended Ball State University. Dave's lifelong passion was baseball, especially the Cincinnati Reds. While in high school, he was a member of
the baseball team, where he was an accomplished left-handed pitcher. After high school, he had a tryout with a minor league affiliate of the Kansas City Royals, but an arm injury ended his pitching career
before he could be signed to a contract.
He worked in radio broadcasting for several years in central Indiana and frequently did radio commercials and sports announcing. He also previously worked at Downlite in Middletown.
He is survived by two sisters, Nancy Nolan of Anderson, and Janet Pierce of Middletown;
brother-in-law, Jack White of Middletown; nieces, Kim Flowers and Chelsea Pierce (Anthony Dawson) of Anderson; nephew, Nathan J. Pierce of Middletown; two sons, Robert Streetman of Crawfordsville and
Jonathan Streetman of Bloomington; great-nieces and great-nephews, Jasmine, Piper, James, and Jay-Dan; as well as one aunt, Pauline Brooks of Michigan. Also surviving are many cousins, and a host of residents
and staff of The Christian Center of Anderson whom Dave considered as family.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
