Born in: Red Oak , Iowa
Resided in: Markleville, IN

David G. Courtier Sr., age 73, of Markleville, passed away at his home on October 18, 2022, surrounded by his family. He was born in Red Oak, Iowa on March 4, 1949.

David was a proud and dedicated member of the United States Navy. Throughout his career, David served in many places as Military Honor Guard. He served in the IMMG, Navy Honor Guard, VFW, Middletown Honor Guard, and his longest, most recent stent serving with the Daleville American Legion Honor Guard for a total of 31 years. The Honor Guard was his passion and he loved anything concerning the American Flag and his county. He served as a volunteer on the Honor Flight and that was a proud moment for him. He was a member of the Northern Lights Sled Dog Rescue and enjoyed being a part of the rescue dog community.

He enjoyed golfing in his spare time and cheering on the Green Bay Packers (when they won.) His family was truly everything to him. He was outgoing and never met a stranger. He was a dedicated husband, father, grandpa, and friend who will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.

David is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Linda Courtier; children Michelle Milligan (Aaron); David Courtier Jr., and Daniel Courtier (Jennifer); grandchildren Brandon Warrick, Andrew Burdett, Alex Courtier, Lyric Milligan, and Orion Milligan; great-grandchildren Adrianna, Weston, and Novelee; brother Douglas Courtier (Christine); many nieces and nephews; and best friends Gary L. Benefiel, all of the Honor Guard, Mel Barribeau.

David is preceded by his parents and his in-laws Wes and Ruth Wortman.
