BOLAN, Robert “David”, a resident of Wetumpka, Alabama formerly of Tallassee, Alabama passed away on Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 12:53. David lived a Godly life filled with many adventures and made everlasting memories along the way. His life was filled with adversity and many challenges, yet he was triumphant and successful in meeting and conquering each and every obstacle in his path. He suffered a horrific injury as a teenager that changed his life forever. He found a way to take his new challenges, and through determination and adversity, he beat the odds. David knew that he had been blessed with a new life and that God had a plan for his life. He lived each day as if it were the last day and blessed everyone he came to know. He used his second chance at life to bring encouragement, joy and love to everyone around him. He strived each day to be a Godfearing man, a loving husband, wonderful father, and gentle grandfather. He leaves behind a legacy of love, faith, and strength for his family.
