David Shipp Class of 1975
Passed Jun 05, 2002
Dave was the unofficial Mascot of the Pioneers from '70-'73 with his curly red hair and strong presence capturing the essence of a true Pioneer. He was one of the founding members of "The Brew Club for those who remember those days.

Dave was married and had two children, Laura and Jason. He lived in Lawrenceville, GA, loved playing golf, and was a fisherman through and through. He made many a summer trek back to Elyria during walleye season always hoping to catch the "big" one.

Remeber his smile, his zest for life, his spirit, and a couple of his pranks. They will surely bring a smile to you face.
