David E. Wadlington

October 9, 2019

On Wednesday, October 9, 2019, David E. Wadlington, caring partner and wonderful father of two children, left this world at the age of 39.

David was born October 18, 1979 to Robert Kelly Wadlington and Mary Alice Lane (maiden name: Waldron) in Ft. Myers, FL. 

David was a prankster whose mischievous grin would lighten any sour mood. He loved spending time outdoors and spent many years in Tampa, FL & North Carolina camping & swimming with his family, hiking with his dog, and riding his motorcycle. He loved fantasy novels and was a huge fan of Terry Goodkind & Robert Jordan.

David was a loyal friend with a smart mouth and big heart. Most importantly, David was a family man who was looking forward to his return to Florida and the time he could spend with his mother, siblings, nieces, & nephews again. His light will be missed by many.

David was preceded in passing by his father, Robert Kelly, and brother, Robert Kelly Jr. (BJ).

He is survived by his partner of 14.5 years Kathleen "Kat" André, his children Skye Liliana Marie Goodson & Damian Nikko Kelly Wadlington, his mother/in-law Mary Alice & Louisa Marcelle Rodriguez, his siblings Lana Kelly Reeves & Susan Adele Mullins and their offspring Brandy Reeves, Tricia Wadlington, Cayla Capetilli, Amber Rivero, Gaige Reeves, Deverre Ogier, as well as several cousins.
