David Lee Hula, 45, died unexpectedly at home on February 3, 2019.
Born on April 21, 1973, David was a graduate of Yough Senior High School. He was a member of the West Newton VFW and was involved for many years with the West Newton Volunteer Fire Department.
David was always willing to lend a hand to those who needed help. Civic-minded and family-oriented, he took it upon himself to care for his relatives’ gravesites and to volunteer to put up American flags in the West Newton Cemetery each Memorial Day. David loved farming – especially at Doney Farm in Smithton – and spending time at the hunting cabin with his Uncle Bob. He also loved working on cars and was known to be able to fix anything.
David is survived by his mother Margaret (“Peggy”) Hula of Belle Vernon; his companion Heather McKeel, her daughter Brittney, granddaughter Jailyn and son Ryan; and many lifelong friends.
He was predeceased by his father Dennis Hula and his maternal and paternal grandparents.
