Our author, mathematician, musician, contractor, father has moved from this earthly world to the next. David Folsom went to be with his beloved wife on Sunday, October 1, 2023 in Aberdeen, South Dakota following an extended illness.
David was born September 26, 1941 in Helena, Montana to Orrin J. Folsom and Jeanette S. Folsom.
David married the love of his life, Sandra Minor on December 3, 1960. David and Sandra lived in many areas of Montana, with Helena, their final home until retirement in 2000 when they moved to Yuma, Arizona. In Arizona, they found an amazing group of new and old friends with whom they shared many adventures. Retirement allowed them to travel extensively throughout the United States and fulfilled their lifelong dream to see Great Britain and Egypt.
Our lives were enriched by a man of varied talents. He could spin a story of epic proportions, do any math calculation needed for all his many construction projects and woodworking projects, play the guitar or the piano so we could all sing a tune (on or off key). His greatest talent was father and grandfather! Those left to cherish his memory are his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
His wife, parents, brother, and mother and father-in-law preceded him in death.
The family thanks the many great friends that supported them during this difficult time. At his request no memorial is planned. The family requests donations be made to the charity of your choice.
Schriver Funeral Home is honored to serve the Folsom family.
