Jackson David Edward opt

David Edward Jackson, age 67, of Elizabeth City, NC went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at Sentara Heart Hospital in Norfolk. A native of Gaston County, North Carolina, he was born October 31, 1953 to Floyd Jackson and Joann Jenkins Jackson and was the husband of Martha Moxley Jackson.

He loved his grandchildren beyond measure and Martha, the love of his life for forty years. He was fiercely devoted to his family and friends. His love for the Lord was his beacon; and he was very active in his church, New Life Assembly of God. He was an outdoorsman, enjoyed riding motorcycles, travelling and being retired. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

To Martha and family,

I’m very sorry to hear of David’s passing. I first met David in the 90’s when we worked at Advance Auto together. David was always such a pleasure to be around, always had a smile and was kind to everyone. In the years after even though we went in different directions he was still a friend and would always take a minute to talk and say hello when we crossed paths. David was a good man and will be missed. Again, I’m very sorry for your loss.

I can’t believe that the selfie you and Dave had with Zary would be the last time I was to see Dave. We are so sorry and brokenhearted with your loss! You guys were always such a great loving couple that always had the biggest smiles. Dave may be physically gone but his love for all of you will continue to be with all his family because he did love you guys!

Now, we pray that the Lord continues to give all of you the strength and happiness to continue with your lives like Dave always wanted. Martha, you know he will always be close to you.

PS: Martha, I thank God for allowing me to see both of you together with your smiles.
