David William Messer

April 12, 1985 — July 15, 2023

Longview, TX


Dave, *AKA* Big Dave left this world to be with our Heavenly Father on the afternoon of Saturday, July 15, 2023. Dave was just 38 years young. Unfortunately, Dave left this place not knowing just how much he was truly loved. Dave was a regional manager at Amiri Towing, where he worked very hard to provide for his family. When he actually had time to spare he would spend every moment cleaning and spending time with family and friends especially his children.  Anyone who knew Dave knew he loved to BBQ, have outings and/or partake in outings with family and friends. Christmas was his favorite time of year. He loved to eat at Red Robin, game nights that we all cheated at, going to the lake, joking around, and talking your butt off.  Dave was an amazing father. He loved his children passionately and did everything in his power to take care of them.
