On August 3, 2023, the world lost a remarkable soul, David Anthony Disbrow, who was a beacon of generosity, loyalty, and unyielding support. He was born on October 25, 1969, in San Antonio, Texas. David spent his life dedicated to his loved ones and his work, embodying the words of Albert Schweitzer, "Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing." He resided in Avilla, where he was known for his dedication and hard work as a machinist in the automotive manufacturing industry.\n\nDavid was an individual of extraordinary character, a man who lived a life of purpose and meaning, never married, but deeply committed to his family. His kindness and generosity was felt by everyone around him. David was the kind of person who would go out of his way to help others, a trait that was deeply admired by his friends, family, and colleagues. His loyalty was unwavering, and he was known for his steadfast commitment to his loved ones and his work. His dedication was not just evident in his personal relationships, but also in his career as a machinist, where he showed an exceptional level of commitment and professionalism.\n\nDavid's real passion was people - his family, friends, and even his Akita, Titian, who sadly crossed the rainbow bridge earlier this year. His love for his family shone brightly in his life and he was often seen at Avilla Middle School, cheering on his beloved daughter, Shawna, as he participated as a coach for disc and shotput.\n\nIn his leisure time, was an avid fan of television shows such as Two and a Half Men, Charmed, Angel, and Supernatural. His love for entertainment was only surpassed by his love for weightlifting and arm wrestling. As his mother Lupe fondly called him, her "baby David", was a true testament to the saying, "Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will." His strength of character and dedication to those he held dear will forever be remembered by all who knew him.\n\nDavid is survived by his loving daughter, Shawna (Kaleb) Johnson; his caring mother, Lupe (Rusty) Toth; his devoted father, Charles (Sharon) Disbrow Jr.; his supportive siblings, Mike (Stacey) Disbrow, Tracy (John) Sexauer, Stacy Wright, and Sandy (Kenny) Monce; his beloved nieces and nephews, Madelyn, Jack, Tessa, Jordan, Kirra, and Aubry; and step nephews, Brandon, and Jarred. His memory will forever be cherished by everyone that knew him.\n\nHe was preceded in death by his beloved grandmother, Maria Villarreal; and grandparents, Kenny & Ethel Nicodemus.\n\nA Celebration of Life funeral service for David will be held on Thursday, August 10, 2023, at Sheets & Childs Funeral Home, Churubusco Chapel, at 6:00 p.m., with a public visitation two hours prior.\n\nSheets & Childs Funeral Home has been entrusted with these arrangements.
