David Hopkins Omohundro, 78, passed away Friday, Dec. 28, 2018. He was born in Charlottesville to the late Andrew and Josephine Omohundro.

David is survived by his wife and soulmate of 50 years, Brenda, and their labrador retriever, Leah. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Betty Hubbard. David is also survived by his mother-in-law, Georgia Scruggs Kirby; brother-in-law, Haden Scruggs, and his wife, Jennifer; sisters-in-law, Tina Taylor and Kim Houchens; nephews and nieces, Adam, Amy, Matthew, Grant, Christopher and Jesse; and six great-nieces and great-nephews.

David attended Lane High School, Staunton Military Academy and Pfeiffer College. He served in the U.S. Army for three years in Germany. David worked for Underwriters Laboratories for 36 years as district manager in Southeastern Virginia where the couple retired.

David spent 32 years on the Chesapeake Bay boating and fishing with his family and friends. He loved the outdoors, especially camping in the mountains with Haden and fishing in Hatteras with his friends and family. David and Brenda spent many years snow skiing and traveling. He shared their travels and love of friends and family through his camera. He was an excellent photographer.

After retirement, he became an avid reader and could be found with a book in hand wherever he traveled. One of David’s greatest blessings was to be a part of the Men’s Bible Breakfast at the First Presbyterian Church of Virginia Beach. David loved his family, friends and all God’s creatures. He was a devoted husband and friend and will be sorely missed.

A memorial service will be conducted at noon, Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019, at H.D. Oliver Funeral Apts., Laskin Road Chapel.
