Mr. David Ison, 81, of Seymour, went home to be with his Lord on July 09, 2020, at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Harlen County, Kentucky, on November 23, 1938 to the late Henry and Osa (Frazier) Ison.

David was a member of Freetown United Methodist Church.

On August 4, 1961, David married Sharon (Carmichael) Ison; she preceded him in death on April 28, 2018.

He retired from Golden Foundry in Columbus after many years of service. He served the Lord as Pastor of Freetown & Surprise United Methodist Churches and was the previous Pastor at Christiansburg & Mt. Nebo.

David had a wonderful tradition of giving everyone he encountered an ink pen with three scriptures listed on each pen. It was his special way of making sure he sent a part of himself and his love for the Lord with everyone he met. He has blessed 700 people with his special pens, giving them out until his very last day.
