David McClard, 71, of Hot Springs passed peacefully on July 10, 2017. David was born in the fall of 1945 to the late Patrick and Maxine McClard.

David was first and foremost a true Christian. He was never afraid to share how much he loved the Lord.

As a motorcycle enthusiast and truck driver for over 25 years, he saw much of the United State, making friends any place he happened to stop. It was hard not to be a friend of David’s. A fun-loving charmer, he was clever, witty, and a natural storyteller. His ability to make people laugh, feel at ease, and listen to a story came through most when he was playing his guitar. Many great family memories are of David’s beautiful voice and guitar playing.

Whether you knew him as David, Dave, Bubba, Uncle Bubba, or Uncle David- you could not help but love him. His siblings Sammy McClard, Patsy (Donnie) Crumpton, Donna Greis, Roger McClard, and Ricky McClard; his nieces and nephews; and David’s friends-too numerous to name- cannot imagine a world without this sweet man. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.

The family would like to thank Rhonda Johnston Harris who took such great care and showed such kindness as David journeyed home.

Pallbearers for David will be his nephews Kevin McClard, Chris McClard, Pete Crumpton, Jason Crumpton, Eric McClard, and Patrick McClard. Honorary pallbearers are Mark Bratton, Charlie Evans, Paul Guerin, Tom Tederetti, Steve Parsons, and the M&M Pawnshop Gang with whom he loved spending time.

A visitation will be held at Gross Funeral Home chapel at 1 pm on Monday, July 17 with a Celebration of David’s Life to follow at 2pm.

Burial will follow at Pleasant Hill Cemetery.
