David Eugene Napier was born January 4, 1943, in Blakley, Ga., the son of Caleb & Calista Martin Napier. He was a graduate of West Bainbridge High School and proudly served his country in the Army National Guard and the United States Coast Guard. David retired from Georgia-Pacific with 25+ years as a machinist. He was Baptist by faith. 

David was quiet man enjoying the simple things in life. Fishing and frying a mess for a gathering with his family topped the list of favorite pastimes. He always had a project and tinkered on most anything, especially those things others would quickly give up on. David’s children and grandchildren filled him with pride, and his love for them was unwavering. 

Survivors include his children, Jeff & Amee Napier and Jennifer & Edward Moore; his grandchildren, Addison, Miles, and Reese; and his siblings, Martha Fowler and Evelyn Faircloth. In addition to his parents, David was preceded in death by his wife of 27 years, Nina Faye King Napier.
