David Arthur Dokey passed away November 12, 2017 at his home in Northglenn. He was born January 13, 1945 in South Bend, Indiana to Joyce (Elmore) and Arthur Dokey. Although David was not born in Colorado, he loved Colorado history reading all he could about the state he called home. He was a true history buff making a point to visit all the historic hotels, cemeteries and ghost towns that were most intriguing to him. His wife, Annette, toured with him and they both thoroughly enjoyed their experiences together. He was also a great admirer of country music - Willie Nelson being one of his favorites. His other pastime was watching movies with Annette. Although he had a passion for motorcycles, a couple of accidents prevented him from riding.
David is survived by his wife Annette; daughters Sheryl (David) Peters and Diana (David) Rendon; mother Joyce; grandchildren Elizabeth, Jacob (Nyssa), Nathan and Lauren; and step-daughter Elizabeth (Chris) Schlorb.
He is preceded in death by his brother Alan who passed away in 1969 and father Arthur who passed away in 2011.
David will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
