Pennington, David Perrett

March 10, 1971 - September 23, 2019

David Perrett Pennington was born on March 10, 1971 to Joe and Linda Pennington in Denton, Texas.  He graduated from West Plano Senior High 1989 and then went to North Texas University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in business in l995.  David left this world way too soon September 23, 2019.

David had one sibling Joe Byron Pennington, II, his best friend.  Though they were born 13 months apart they were as close as any set of twins.  They had a mysterious ability to know what each other was thinking and feeling, even though their personalities were as different as night and day.  They were very close and protective of each other.  David was very thoughtful and willing to help at any time in any situation.  His friends and family knew to call him in times of need and rest assured he would be there for them.  He loved his friends and family fiercely and they loved him.  He loved his cats and spoiled them all, they were his babies.  David had a beautiful and loving girlfriend, Robyn Ziembinski, who he fawned over and loved with all his heart.  The couple was inseparable and always happy together, laughing and joking and making plans for the future.  After college David went into real estate following in the family footsteps but soon realized he was not the 9-5 office type.  He enjoyed working with his hands, working on cars and projects and around the house.  He loved doing projects with Robyn and his mom.  David was very sensitive, sweet and emotional.  David was especially close to his mother Linda who preceded him in death on July 13, 2019 which had a devastating effect on David.  He was also preceded in death by his grandfather Dan Perrett, uncle Ronald Perrett, grandfather Byron Ervice Pennington and grandmother Harriet Pennington.

David is survived by his brother Joe Byron Pennington, II, his father Joe Byron Pennington and his wife Janet, his uncle Danny Perrett and wife Marilyn, his uncle Steve Pennington and wife Janell, his grandmother Sadie Perrett, stepbrother Toby Shelton and wife Kandy, cousin Jessica Witcher and husband James.

Sorry for your loss.

Tim Bentle says:

Joe, I had only met David a couple of times. But, by sympathy and empathy your heartbreak is shared. I mourn standing with you. With my own brother people that know one of us often comment that by knowing one they knew us both. Love is such an inadequate word, it narrows the total scope of its reach and power to connect us. Brother is one of it’s more powerful incarnations or facets, if you will. So am i / are we your brothers and sisters. Death will never fully separate us, nor time and space; the heart of a brother will never stop pouring its love on the other. God hold and bless you and all your family; me and mine are at your service.

Trisha and Bob Capers says:

Joe brought so much joy and laughter to everyone. I remember when we were 15 we would all sneak out and he would teach us round house kicks. I’m so sorry to this entire family for recent loss and tragedy. You are all in my prayers.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
