David Eugene Hashberger

April 20, 1942 — September 24, 2021

David Eugene Hashberger, 79, of Rocky Ford, Colorado, went home to be with his Lord and Savior Friday, September 24, 2021. He was born April 20, 1942, in Logansport, Indiana, to Harry and Goldie Hashberger. He was married to the late Joy (Drye) Hashberger for 57 years.

David graduated from high school in 1960 in Logansport, IN. He and Joy were married September 8, 1962. He worked in a variety of fields throughout his career, including accounting and IT. After studying music in college, it remained one of his biggest passions throughout his life. He had a beautiful voice and loved singing, leading worship, and listening to gospel music.

David was a proud father, a supportive and encouraging grandfather, and loyal friend. He was a regular at his grandkids’ sporting events; listened to them and gave sound advice; and made everyone feel comfortable. He will be remembered for his steadfast convictions; the way he welcomed new members into the family; his sense of humor; chasing storms with his camera; and his crazy love for Kentucky basketball. Dave could be found most weekday mornings drinking coffee and talking politics with the “regulars” around the large table at Christine’s.

David is survived by two daughters, Kari (Rick) Kienitz of Rocky Ford, CO and Kristi (Carlos) Whaley of Forest, VA; nine grandchildren, Joel (Jennifer) Kienitz of Monument, CO; Jacob (Rebecca) Kienitz of Castle Rock, CO; Joshua (Leah) Kienitz of Pueblo, CO; Jessika (Julia) Saenz of Colorado Springs, Co; Jenna Kienitz and Jayson Kienitz of Rocky Ford, CO; Drew Whaley of Blacksburg, VA; Joseph Whaley and Claire Whaley of Forest, VA; five great-grandchildren Alex, Tatum, Reagan, Rose & Kierra; his brother, Ron (Nancy) Hashberger of Kendallville, IN; and nieces Rhonda (Kevin) Kendig of Fort Wayne, IN; Alissa Rhodes of Kendallville, IN; and nephew Brent Schinbeckler of Phoenix, AZ. He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife Joy Hashberger; and his youngest daughter, Kiara Hashberger of Plymouth, IN.

The family will celebrate his life with relatives and friends Friday, October 8, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at the Community Baptist Church in Crowley, CO. An additional service and burial will take place in Plymouth, Indiana, at a date and time to be determined.
