David Wayne Proffitt, passed away peacefully on October 12, 2019 after a long battle with PKD with loved ones by his side. He was born June 22, 1972, the son of Gail Vaughn and Donald G Proffitt.
After high school, David went on to work for UPS for 19 years until he went on disability due to his illness and being on dialysis. During his tenure at UPS, he also laid carpet, tile and asphalt. He loved his job and the many friends he made during this time. He enjoyed spending his free time going to the lake and fishing and was a huge KC Chiefs fan.
At the start of the year, David was working towards a kidney transplant. He suffered from several other health issues including congestive heart failure and the beginning stages of liver failure. Through his many diagnosis and obstacles, David fought hard and remained positive. He continued to live and enjoy his life as a nephew, father, new grandpa, foster son, and partner as best as he could. He always had a smile on his face even when his health seemed like it might get the best of him.
David is survived by his aunt, Debra Napier and husband; David’s five children, Bryn and Greysen Proffitt, Alexis, Lillian and Cody Young; his partner in life, Sarah Young; his grandson, Mekai Karter Proffitt; the mother of his children, Mandi Proffitt; along with many cousins, family members, friends and loved ones.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Gail Vaughn, and father, Donald G. Proffitt.
