David Wesley Waters was born Jan. 17, 1978 and died Nov. 9, 2020. He
was a longtime resident of Kingman. Preceded in death by his father in
1994 and his mother in 2006, he is survived by two brothers, Steven
Bennett of Grass Valley, California, and Gary Jarvis Waters, Jr. of

Often unhelpful yet always humorous, Dave was a pragmatist who enjoyed
making light of optimism and clipping the wings of dreamers. His
cardinal virtue was the “heart” known in boxing. He was a gifted and
courageous fighter never to be underestimated. While he lived, he was
best man at many weddings, a volunteer fireman who saw action across
the state, and was remarkable in having few acquaintances but many
friends. Though he was unsentimental, his humor was a constant to
many, and he is and will be loved and remembered.

An informal wake will take place Friday, Nov. 27 at “Sacred Spot” at
5:30 p.m. Meet shortly before at White Cliffs Wagon Trail. Those long
escaped from Kingman can recall where this place is and remember why
we were once there together.
