David Eugene Stringer, a resident of Ashland, Ohio for over 40 years, died on Tuesday, July 27th, 2010 at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. He was born on August 7, 1937 in Akron, Ohio.

He leaves behind his wife of over 52 years, Carol A. Stringer, and his children: daughter, Renee Statham of Ashland, OH., Christine Bauer of Sarasota, Florida, and David (Rory) Stringer of Ashland, OH. Also his grandchildren: Sarah (Josh) Glaze of Alpharetta, Georgia; Zachariah (fiance, Lauren Wolfgang) Bauer of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Luke Bauer of Atlanta, Georgia; Hallie and Samantha Statham of Ashland, OH., and Alexandra and Maxwell Stringer of Ashland, OH. He is also survived by his sister, Sandra (Cecil) Lee of Uniontown, OH; and brothers: Robert (Jan) Stringer of Merrimac, New Hampshire and Richard Stringer of Akron, OH.

He was employed at General Tire in Akron, Ohio and Eagle Rubber Co. after moving to Ashland, OH., in 1968. He also worked at Henkel Chemical as a Regional Sales Manager until his retirement in 2000.

David enjoyed being outdoors and always looked forward to his hiking trips throughout the United States with his brother, Bob.

He was the family photographer and would make sure to memorialize his family's milestones and vacations. Unfortunately he rarely shows up in the snapshots because someone had to take the pictures!

We love you and will miss you, Papaw!

A memorial service will be held 10:00am Monday, August 2, 2010 at Heyl Funeral Home, 227 Broad St., Ashland, OH., with Pastor Don Earlenbaugh officiating. Friends may visit with the family 1 hour prior to the service Monday at the funeral home.

My sympathy is with all of you today. Dave touched many lives with his kindness, knowledge, and demeanor. I'll miss him terribly but take solace in the fact that he's with the Lord today. He made the world around him a better place. Peace be with you!

Dave and I have been friends for thirty years. We met when he was servicing the Diebold industrial washers in Canton, Wooster, Hebron, and Lexington, NC. We started buying each other lunches so there would be no hint of impropriety in our eating lunch together so often. Dave and I had much in common, being Lodge brothers, and having both come from the rubber world.

We have been buying each other lunch, once a month, for the last thirty years.

I will miss my friend!

Carol and family, I cannot express how sorry I am to hear of your loss. Dave and I have worked on coating issues for quite some time together and it was ALWAYS a brighter day when he came to town.

I only knew David for a short time, but we became instant friends due to our common background in the coatings industry and his outgoing nature. I enjoyed his visits to Lexington, NC, where we worked on systems together, and he never failed to be considerate of me and others during these times. What tolerance in some cases! I will miss him and my sincere sympathies to his family and his many friends for his loss.

A quiet and self-effacing man. A man of deep thoughts, a man with a generous nature. A man of patience. Slow to anger but able to stand his ground. A man of principle and sound values. A kind man who took his time to reach important decisions. A loving husband, father, and grandfather. We will miss you Dave, thanks for all you did for Hallie and Sam. Thanks for your friendship. Pat and John
