David Ferguson

September 4, 1962 — January 3, 2022

David Charles Ferguson, retired Master Sergeant of the United States Air Force, passed away unexpectedly on January 3, 2022 at the age of 59 in San Antonio, Texas. He is survived by his beautiful wife, Tanya; his two children, Brandon (Alicia) and Brittani (Casey), and his 8 grandchildren; his mother, Margaret; and his brothers Dan (Cathy) and Doug and their families. He is predeceased by his father, Charles, and his sister, Lisa. David was born on September 4, 1962 to Charles and Margaret Ferguson. At 18 years old, David proudly joined the United States Air Force and served 20 years. His service took him all over the world where he worked on the J-85 and the F-110, or as he called them “the sound of freedom.” He carried that knowledge and passion to a career with GE Aviation where he continued to work with the service members he’d known from his time in the Air Force. David was a devoted husband and father and avid fan of baseball (Go White Sox!) and football (Bear Down!). He was a remarkable and skilled mechanic and lifelong learner. He had a passion for hopping into the kitchen and learning a new skill to share with those around him, or heading out to his garage to craft a handmade cutting board or coffee table. He made friends with incredible ease and loved them openly. He was deeply spiritual and spent his adult life seeking solace and guidance from that spirituality. And above all else, he could spend an evening listening to 70’s Rock and dancing his version of The Twist, bringing a smile to those with him. He will be deeply missed by his friends and family. There will be a memorial visitation on Wednesday, January 12th, from 4-8PM at Schertz Funeral Home. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to one of the following charities in honor of David’s proud military service: The Wounded Warrior Project, The Gary Sinise Foundation, or the Fisher House Foundation. A service is planned for Clarendon Hills Cemetery at a later date. Please reach out to a family member if you wish to attend the service in Clarendon Hills.
