David Milton Foote

December 10, 1934 — June 15, 2024

Benton

David Milton Foote, 89, of Benton, departed this life peacefully on June 15, 2024, at his home, surrounded by his family.

He was born on December 10, 1934, in Cleveland, Ohio, to the late Dorothy Noonan and Alton G. Foote. Throughout life, Dave enjoyed working on his farm and spending time in the wheat fields, while enjoying each moment he was blessed with. He was an avid camper, photographer, and enjoyed the Hiwassee River. A few of his fondest memories include reading and studying the Holy Bible and completed his seminary school at the Tennessee Temple University. He was also a graduate of Cornell University and faithfully served our country with the United States Army.

Dave was a true family man and loved each family member with all his heart, while mentoring to each one about the word of Jesus Christ. He was a faithful and devout husband and father, setting a great example for all the family. He was a strong and gentle man, and loved by all who had the privilege of knowing him. He will be deeply missed.

In addition to his parents, Dorothy and Alton Foote, he was preceded in death by his one sister, Margaret Gergich.

Left to cherish the many memories include his loving wife of 63 years, Nancy Sanders Foote; beloved children, Stephen (Linda) Staples, Susan Stinson, Jennifer Roggendorff (Terry Hyle), and Darrell (Kelli) Foote; grandchildren, Natalie (Ryan) Guay, Timothy (Erin) Staples, Rebecca (Carmine) Caputo, Gladys Haley, Valerie Stinson, Katelyn Roggendorff, Allie (Chandler) Ray, Allix Foote, and Caleb Foote; and eight great-grandchildren.
