David has gone. Gone where? Out of our sight that’s all, into the celestial night. He left his physical body on April 5, 2019. It is thought he died of natural causes.

David was born on a family farm in Madison County, IA. He began school at Willard and later to Summerset Rural in Iowa. The family moved to a farm in Moberly, MO and he graduated from high school there. He served in the Air Force during the Korean War, and afterward attended A.I.B., then Drake University earning his Bachelor’s in Sociology/English.

David is survived by his sister, Darlene (Timothy) Kuntz; step-mother, Vivian Leaming; half-brother, James (Judy) Foulk; sister-in-law, Judy Leaming; numerous nieces and nephews; and dear friend, Kurtis Young. He was preceded in death by his parents, Cyrus and Margie Leaming; and siblings, Darrell Leaming, Paul Marcus Leaming, Glen Cyrus Leaming, and Mary Rodriguez.

A memorial service will be held Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at Hamilton’s on Westown Parkway, 3601 Westown Parkway in West Des Moines.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed to The Des Moines Metro Opera, or to the Animal Rescue League in loving memory of David.
