Obituary of David Curtis Gere, III

Please share a memory of David to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Age 29, of Flint, passed away Friday, September 8, 2023, with his family by his side. In accordance with David’s wishes, cremation has taken place. There are no further services at this time. Expressions of sympathy may be placed on David’s tribute wall at martinfuneralhome.com.


David was born in Flint on November 20, 1993, the son of Mr. and Mrs. David and Tina M. (Waskoski) Gere, II. Educated locally, he attended Genesee High School and graduated with the Class of 2012. David was an avid Disc Golf player and spent much of his free time on the green. David had an extreme talent for drawing and used his talent to design tattoos for others. Watching UFC Fighting, MSU football, and the Detroit Lions as well as playing video games were just a few of his favorite pastimes. Some would say David loved dogs and animals more than people. Spending time with his family was by far his favorite pastime. He loved his nieces and nephews as his own. He will be greatly missed.  


The jar of smiles lies shattered, broken pieces beyond repair. Yet each shard still reflects your joyful soul, my son. I cling to memories, moments frozen in time. The day you learned to walk, the night you fell asleep in my arms. My boy, beautiful blessing, the gift was too soon taken back. But your spirit lives on, seeds planted in my heart bear fruit in the world. Your brief life, oh so fleeting, still teaches me love is stronger than death, and legacies live far beyond loss.


Left to cherish David's memory are his father, David Gere, II; mother, Tina Gere; siblings: Tonya Gere, Jody Gere and fiancée, Sam Myers; fiancée, Alaena Antal; nieces and nephews: Joshua, Freya, Atlas; and fur babies: Nuggy, Nightmare, Twig.
