David Lee Willis, age 65, of Wellston, went to be with his Lord on Monday, September 6, 2021, from his daughter’s home in Hamden, Ohio, following a brief illness. He was born March 19, 1956, in Portsmouth, Ohio to Harry Willis, Jr. and Mary R. Thompson Willis. David graduated from Minford High School in 1974 and was an employee of Bellisio Foods in Jackson. David loved to go camping and hiking, and he always enjoyed playing his guitar; but more than anything, he loved helping others and telling people about his Lord. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Harry Willis, Jr.; and children: David Lee Willis and Alicia Marie Willis.
