David W. Nesbitt, age 79, went home to be with the Lord on August 28, 2021 in Bellingham, WA. David was born March 6, 1942 in Bellingham to parents Wilbur and Eleanore Nesbitt. He graduated from Mt. Baker High School in 1960, but didn’t let that deter him from logging at the age of 14 with draft horses. He went on to drive log truck before starting his own company. He had a talent for rebuilding and restoring equipment, and often said that he bought his equipment “by the ton”.
He was known for his generosity in helping family members and his many friends. He enjoyed basketball games, working on projects in his shop, and especially spending time with his grandsons. He will be remembered for saying, “The key is in the ignition.”
David was preceded in death by his parents, Wilbur H. and Eleanore W. Nesbitt and his wife, Vicki (Ladiser) Nesbitt.
He is survived by his daughter, Christi Joyce and her husband Bill; grandsons Benjamin and Jacob; and his sister Jeanette Beck.
David requested no memorial services. A private family service will be held at Greenacres.
