David Ray Denton, 83, went to be with his Lord and Savior Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2017.

He was born in Grand Rapids on July 29, 1933, the son of Russell and Lillie (Bischoff) Denton.

David proudly served his country as a helicopter technician in the U.S. Army, and he was an avid outdoorsman, especially enjoying hunting and fishing.

He is survived by his children, Louis Denton, Patrick (Theresa) Denton, James (Bonnie) Denton and Jeff (Shari) Denton; nine grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren and one sister, Yvonne Ormiston; along with several nieces, nephews and extended relatives.

He was preceded in death in 2008 by his wife of 48 years, Janice; his parents; and his brother-in-law, Bruce Ormiston.

In accordance to the wishes of David, no formal services will be held. A private family interment will be held at a later date.

To honor David’s memory, the family asks that memorial contributions be directed to Spectrum Hospice.
