David was born in Reidsville, GA, March 19, 1943, son of the late Walter Wilburn and Mildred Purvis Woodrum of Glennville, GA.

After marriage, David & Suzanne moved to Asheville, NC and then back to Hinesville/Fort Stewart, GA and then to Atlanta to finish David’s Engineering Degree. They permanently moved to Savannah, GA where David continued his passion in Engineering and Construction with Bouy, Hall, and Howard and eventually started his own company, Old Mill Construction, several years later. David and Suzanne are devoted children and servants of our Lord Jesus Christ at White Bluff United Methodist Church where Suzanne continues her musical gifts as organist.

David is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Suzanne Rowland Woodrum, daughter of the late Charlie and Susan Rowland of Glennville; their three daughters, Vicki Rogers (Earl) of Atlanta, Michelle Dunn (Bryant) of Savannah, and Melanie Montford (Chuck) of Jacksonville, FL; two sisters Fran Dubberly (Mike) of Manassas, VA and Polly Camp of Atlanta, GA; their adored 6 grandchildren Zachary, Anna Grace, and Matthew Montford, Madeline, Bryce, and Ross Dunn and several nieces and nephews.
