David Edward Jaycox, age 48, of Wellston, passed away at his home Sunday, May 10, 2020, of complications from injuries he received in an automobile accident in March. He was born Dec. 10, 1971 in Delaware, Ohio.
Dave graduated from Wellston High School in 1990, and continued his education at Ohio University in Athens. He was a former Technical Specialist for Southern California Edison. Dave was a sports enthusiast who especially enjoyed watching football and cheering on the Cincinnati Bengals. He loved all animals and was always willing to take in strays.
Dave was a member and current President of the Wagon Wheelers Square Dance Club. He had a personal faith in God. He gave his life to Jesus at age 6. David was extremely loving, merciful and caring. He not only rescued animals, but he would sit with those who were ill to relieve the family members for a period of time. And he always had a kind word for everyone. Goodbye my most beloved, precious son until we are again together in Heaven.
