Mr. David Ward Obituary

Mr. David Lee Ward entered eternal rest on Monday, February 19, 2024.  David was born on July 22, 1947 to the late Jasper and Annie Mae Ward in Hampton, Virginia.  He graduated from George Washington Carver High School with the Class of 1967.  David was reared in the Newsome Park community of Newport News.

Coming from a strong spiritual home, David joined Shalom Baptist Church under the Pastorship of Rev. Dr. Joseph Bracette Reid at the age of 13.  He served on t he Junior Usher Board.  David continued his spiritual walk in life until his health started to decline.

David's outside interests included billiards, bowling, dancing, poker and pinochle of which he participated in until his health prevented him to do so..  David was also an active member in the George Washington Alumni Association.  He also served as president of the Newsome Park Reunion Committee from 2020-2023  He put his heart and soul into any activity that he was involved in.

As a child David loved to tinker with and tear things apart, only to put them back together...maybe better than they were before he had torn them apart.  This led to his love of auto mechanics.  He later became founder and owner of Ward's Mobile Auto Repair, the famous logo was "You Call, We Roll",

David was preceded in death by his parents, Jasper and Annie Mae Ward and his stepsister, Magalene Thorpe.  He leaves to cherish his memories of love and laughter, his wife, Clarine who made a vow of sickness and health until death do we part.  Never did the vows say a caregiver but she was a caring wife by his side 24 hours a day.  David is also survived by his children Lamont Ward (Veris), Anthony Ward, Marcus Ward (Keshawn), Tanesha Parham and Terrence Lee; nine grandchildren, Malonne, Keyon, Jukwan, Terrance, Jayla, Koryzon, Kavaris, Khiza and Kairo; three sisters; Mittie Ward Dixon, Shirley Ward Slaton (Milton) and Loveine Ward Alston (William) and  a host of family members and friends.
