David LeRoy Fannin

David L. Fannin, 44, of Richland, died Monday, May 28, 2001, at Kadlec Medical Center. He was born March 14, 1957 in Everett, Washington and had lived in the Tri-Cities 22 years.

He worked as a laborer for 13 years for Washington Public Power Supply System until a car accident in 1992 left him partially paralyzed.

David loved fishing and hiking, and he learned to enjoy fishing from his wheelchair. One of his favorite spots to camp was the “Enchantments” above Leavenworth.

He is survived by his wife, Jan; sister, Carol Thomas of Shelton, WA; and brother, Roger Cosens of Wenatchee, WA.  A liver transplant in 1999 extended his life among us.  We are grateful for the time we had with him.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Jackie Judd and father, William Fannin.

A memorial service will be held at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, May 31, 2001, at Einan’s Funeral Home.

  • David was my first cousin. I never knew anything about him until after I started working on my family tree. I found his wife, Janice in Washington state and spoke to her a little. Very nice lady. I wish I would have known David Leroy Fannin. If anyone has anything they would like to tell me about David or possibly share photos with me I would love to be contacted.

  • David was my uncle. I had known him since I was a young boy. He was always smiling, and was a joy to be around. I will miss him dearly.
