    David Laine Spruill went to be with God January 12, 2017. He was born January 12, 1969 to Cara and Gary Spruill in Ashland, Oregon where he was raised and graduated from Ashland Senior High.


    David was a commercial fisherman in Alaska and wrote a book about his time as part of the cleanup effort during the Exxon Valdez oil spill. In his later years he was a builder before his retirement to Brookings, Ore.


    David had a passion for the outdoors and loved playing his guitar. He had a special love for his grandparents, all of whom are deceased; and his dogs were his most trusted and loyal friends.  He was a loving and forgiving person with a love for family second to none.


    He is survived by his parents; his lady, Beverly Hensley; three sisters, April Weber (Mike) of Kenai, Alaska, Tia Spruill of Soldotna, Alaska, and Corie Spruill of Moab, Utah; two brothers, Mike Chairez (Amity) of Meridian, Idaho and Ross Spruill of Kasilof, Alaska; two nephews, Riley Weber and Aidan Spruill; and two nieces, Samantha Weber and Alexis Poe; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and close friends. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Charlie and Maxine Spruill and Jim and June Lanman and his brother, Lukas Spruill. Heaven has a soul no purer than David's. He will be missed.
