David Wayne Carpenter
David Wayne Carpenter, 63 of Jonesville, was born on July 5, 1958, and passed from this life on January 5, 2022, at Rapides Regional Medical Center after a brief illness.
Services were held Saturday, January 8, 2022, at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, with Rev. Mike Russell officiating under the direction of Young’s Funeral Home.
David grew up farming but his true passion came later in life after he accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior. It became obvious that his gift was ministering to others. In doing so, he served as Chaplain at Catahoula Correctional Center in Harrisonburg for several years. But most recently, David volunteered his time and efforts to the residents of Almost Home Behavioral Ministries. Throughout these past few years, he used his talents to teach others to show great courage in the face of adversity.
David spent countless hours studying God’s Word. He could never be found without his Bible in hand as it was his constant companion. It was obvious that he truly embraced it as his instruction book for life. David genuinely loved people and made an impact on all who knew and loved him. He always had a kind word and could find humor in every situation. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed watching wildlife, and his favorite place was on Little River.
David was preceded in death by his parents D. R. and Ruby J. Carpenter, and his nephew Corbin Carpenter. He is survived by two sons, Teal Carpenter, and wife Aimee of Shreveport and Philip Carpenter, and wife Whitney of Monroe; three grandsons Elijah, McKay, and Clay David. He is also survived by three sisters, Kay Venable and husband Hollis of Natchez, MS, Pam Wood and husband Gary of Natchez, MS, Denise Campbell and husband Dennis of Maumelle, Arkansas, and one brother Dewitt Carpenter and wife Theresa of Jonesville, as well as several nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Almost Home Behavioral Ministries, 2008 Fourth Street, Jonesville, LA 71343
While we will all miss David’s presence, we rejoice in knowing that Jesus met him with open arms saying, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
