Obituary for David Evans Propst

David Evans Propst, 80, passed away at his home March 4, 2019, while under the care of his family. David was the son of the late Evans Alfred Propst and Ruth Rutledge Propst, born and raised in Maiden, graduating from Maiden High School. After having met the love of his life, Jean, he and Jean married and lived in Lincolnton for over 25 years before building their unique house on Lake Norman, the quality and craftsmanship of which is a continuing tribute to David’s father. David had many businesses over the years, but a special interest in trucks and long-distance hauling. After driving for several years, trucking never left his blood. With Jean at his side, their company Propst Distributing became a success. Long after the company ended, David remained close to many of its drivers, and considered them his best friends to the very end. His loving, generous spirit and desire to make friends with everyone will not be forgotten. David is survived by Jean, son Marty Propst, daughter Missy Rosenbaum, grandchildren Django Rosenbaum and Gabby Love Rosenbaum, son in law David Griggs, sisters Gail McCree, Betty McGee, and Cheryl Canipe, as well as Lady, always eager to jump in the truck and go for a ride.
