    David Shands Obituary - Visitation & Funeral Information

    Obituary for David Shands

    David Anthony Shands passed away Sunday, January 16, 2022 at the Baptist Memorial Hospital in New Albany. He was 77 years old. David was born January 24, 1945 in Houma, Louisiana, the son of David Wilson Shands and Elizabeth Pillar Shands. David grew up in Tupelo and graduated from Tupelo High School. He then proudly served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. After his discharge, he began his career with the Mississippi Forestry Commission. He retired after 25 years of service. David was an avid crappie fisherman and was at home outdoors. He was also active in his community as a member of Locust Hill Baptist Church and the Civitan Club which he served as governor for the Mississippi Northern District. He dearly loved his family and cherished the time they spent together.
    David leaves behind his wife of 54 years, Dorothy Shands; his daughter, Christy Blaylock and her husband, Martin; and two granddaughters, Cassidy and Camille Blaylock, all of the Endville Community.
    He was preceded in death by his half-brother, William Shands.
    The family will celebrate Davidís life with a private service on Wednesday at the Jefferson Street Chapel of W.E. Pegues with Bro. David Ross officiating. Burial will be in Locust Hill Cemetery.

    Due to Covid, it will be a private ceremony.

    We will miss you David. Crappie.com will not be the same without you. RIP

    Thank you for posting. This hurts and I only knew him through PM’s. Could only imagine the hurt those closer to him feel.

    Amen. I understand that “G” came from his being a G3 boatman but I feel it could just as well stood for a great gentleman. Praying for his family and their one empty chair.
