David “Pickle” was born May 21, 1948 in Windsor, MO to James Freeman Shreve and Edith Irene (Tracy) Shreve. He was raised by his step-father Ralph Shreve. He graduated from Gardner High School in 1966. David was a life-long area resident but resided in California and Idaho for a while. He served in the Air Force as a Staff Sergeant E5 from 1967-1971.

He was a member of American Legion Post #19 and a life-member of the VFW Post both of Gardner. David was quite the character: ornery, a trouble maker and fiercely loyal. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and will be missed by family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents and step-father Ralph Shreve; siblings: Myrna Shreve and Jon Shreve. David is survived by his wife, Julie; daughters: Megan and husband Jason Johnson, Melissa and husband Troy Good, all of Baldwin City, KS; three grandchildren: Tucker, Wyatt and Jett; siblings: Ina Warren, Pittsburgh, KS, Gayle Velasquez, Gardner, KS, Dennis Shreve, Liberty, MO, Becky Pyle and Lynne Shreve, both of Gardner, KS.

David was a Jewel added to our family by God. When he married our cousin Julie he brought unbelievable support and loyalty. Julie talked a lot about the trips they took and what fun they had. Julie also talked about his daughters and how good they were to her and to her Mother, Wilma.
David was brilliant in his friendships and knowing what people needed. It was David who suggested that Julie should spend time with me, helping me unpack and decorate my apartment. Julie took him at his word, and insisted on doing something productive every time she came to visit. This arrangement benefited both Julie and me. I got good advice and assistance and Julie felt needed and accomplished. Clever man, David.
We loved the neighborhood parades David held just about every year. Who else would or could do such a thing. The Trigg uncles just loved to visit with David at these parades and many other occasions. They thought a lot of David and their admiration was not easy to earn.
David's life was well lived and we are thankful for his positive and loving contributions to the lives of others. His life ended much too soon and we will miss him dearly.
