David lived a cheerful life as a humble and faithful servant. His love for his wife and family was evident to all who knew him. He enjoyed a good joke and harassing grandkids on who was better looking. He made sure everyone knew there was no better fisherman alive. The fish feared him…… in his own mind! David never missed an opportunity to share his love of Jesus. He led many strangers to Christ. There is no doubt he is by his side now.
He is survived by:
His loving wife of 52 years, Martha Gutermuth
Aaron Gutermuth and wife Patsy
Bryan Gutermuth and wife Julie
Steven Gutermuth and wife Stephanie Simmons-Gutermuth
Craig Gutermuth and wife Elizabeth
Gary Gutermuth and wife Alice
Renee Hartley and husband Dan
Joann Uhur and husband Martin
A host of family and friends that will miss him dearly
David is preceded in death by his parents, Aylette and Martha Gutermuth; and brother, Dale Gutermuth.
