David Russ Guyton Sr. age 85 of Castle Hayne, N.C. transitioned to his eternal home on August 20, 2019, at the Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter with his family by his side. He was born to the late Robert R. and Annie C. Guyton on September 29, 1933, and is preceded in death by two brothers Lester and Kenneth Guyton.

He served in the United States Air Force during the Korean War and was stationed in Anchorage Alaska for two years.

Several nieces and nephews and many friends that became family.

David worked for many years as a truck driver and retired from Yellow Freight in 1995. He had a love for growing vegetables in his garden and sharing them with all he knew. He was also an avid hunter and fisherman spending lots of time with those he loved making precious memories. David was a member of the Brown Road hunting club for many years and Hampstead hunting club prior to that. His love for his family was like no other. He set examples of hard work, integrity, respect, and honor. Always doing for and thinking of others. He also loved his Lord, and singing his praises in the church choir and playing softball. His sense of humor will last on and on as the memories we will keep close to our hearts.
