David H. Karstetter of Newark, OH, January 26, 1952 – June 4, 2018

David H. Karstetter, of Newark, Ohio went to be with the Lord, surrounded by loved ones on June 4, 2018. The son of Howard “Bud”, and Violet “Mickey” (Emerick) Karstetter, Dave was born on January 26, 1952 and was raised in Youngstown, Ohio.

Dave is survived by his loving partner of 15 years Lillie Leonard of Newark; children, Shannon (Dave) Weingart of Sebring, OH, David Jr. (Jessica) of Newark, Danielle, Kyle, and Kaitlin of Newark; siblings, Karen McCann (Peter) of Gainesville Fla, and Brian (Julia) of Cromwell, CT. Dave also leaves his 4 grandchildren, Andrew, Nicholas, Adrienne, and Eleanora whom he loved dearly, and many loving nieces and nephews. Dave would have also wanted to acknowledge his children’s mothers, Cori Karstetter, of Newark, and Pat Patterson, of Sebring, OH.

His impact on his friends and family was enormous, and we have all benefited from his presence. Dave enjoyed riding (working on) his Harley, his work, and the outdoors. His laugh was contagious, and his heart was always open to anyone in need. Some of his best times involved the annual beach vacations with Lillie, and his sister in Florida, and the annual trip to the mountains with his brother and the close friends of camp. His most important priority and his greatest passion was his family. He lived life to the fullest, always wide open, and always with consideration to others. He will be missed by all, and lives on through us forever.

Calling hours will be held at Brucker and Kishler Funeral Home, 985 N. 21st Street, Newark, Ohio, on Saturday June 9th, from 11am-1pm, with a Service of Remembrance at 1pm.
