David B. Eastwood
David B. Eastwood, 51, passed away Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013, at Our Hospice of South Central Indiana in Columbus. He was a resident of Nashville.
David was born Dec. 21, 1961, in Beech Grove to William H. and Martha L. (Darling) Eastwood. He was a 1981 graduate of Brown County High School.
He was employed as a union electrician for the past 15 years with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 481, working mainly at Eli Lilly and Co. in Indianapolis. Before that, he worked for Indy Automotive as a technician in Indianapolis.
David was a member of the Martinsville Seventh-day Adventist Church and a proud member of the National Rifle Association.
He was a devoted family man who enjoyed spending time with his family and especially helping care for his grandchildren.
He loved the outdoors, fishing, spelunking, camping, hiking, bird watching, being in the woods with his dog Tigger and working in the flower gardens with his mother.
David’s family fondly remembers his creative skills in the kitchen, where most of his food creations never had a name but everyone loved to eat them.
His hobbies included raising chickens and goats. He will be remembered for his special compassion for helping injured animals of any kind.
