Dave was born on Dec. 7, 1953 to Jean and James Mills. He graduated from Everly High School in 1972 and attended Worthington Community College. He farmed for 20 years outside Spencer, Iowa, before owning and operating the Scoreboard Lounge in Milford, Iowa. Later he worked as a carpenter and moved to the Bradenton, Florida area. He enjoyed completing home renovation projects and hosting friends and family who visited from the Midwest.

At Dave’s request, his body was donated for the advancement of science.

“I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope you find comfort in Jesus words at John 5:28,29. There Jesus promised a resurrection of our loved ones, saying that the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. These resurrected ones will inherit the earth, as Jesus spoke about in Matthew chapter 5. Then, under the rule of God’s Kingdom, they will enjoy life the way God originally intended, in perfect health with no sorrow, pain or death. (Psalms 37:29. Isaiah 33:24. Revelation 21:4). What a wonderful time that will be! If you would like to learn more about this hope, please visit Please accept my condolences.”

“My deepest sympathies to the family, especially Mary, Jessica, Sarah, and Abby. Dave was a great friend and more. It is nearly impossible to recall all of the great times we had together over the years. I smile when I think about those many escapades, but it also very sad to know there will be no more. He was truly one of a kind, and will be sorely missed. ”

“My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. Losing someone you love is truly difficult and I know David will be missed. Please know our Heavenly Father holds out promises that can help us with our sorrow. One such promise is that death soon will be done away with forever (Revelation 21:4) and another promise is that "there is going to be a resurrection." (Acts 24:15). I pray these promises from God, who cannot lie, (Titus 1:2) brings you comfort. For more comfort from the Bible visit www . jw . org. ”
