David passed away Monday, Oct. 3, 2011, at his Clarkston home surrounded by his family. He was taken by cancer. David was born Dec. 11, 1939, in Independence, Mo., to Rev. Edwin C. Ogle and Charlcie Mae Paul Ogle.
His family moved to Clarkston, where he graduated from high school in 1958. He went on to attend Warner Pacific College in Portland, Ore., for 21/2 years.
David and Bethene Parsons were married and had two children. The couple later divorced.
He later met and married the love of his life, Polly Ogle, and together they raised their eight children.
David was a hard worker with a work ethic unmet by many. During his working years he was employed at Nabisco and a frozen food plant, both in Portland, Ore. In the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley and surrounding area he worked for Lewiston Grange Supply, Hoff Ford, Holiday Lincoln Mercury, and did farm and dairy work. He was also co-owner of Seaport Liquidator.
While at Holiday Lincoln Mercury, he was named one of the top salesmen of the Northwest. David had an adventurous spirit and was one of the first hang gliders in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley. He was an avid bowler and bowled on many leagues through the years. He bowled more than three perfect games during his league bowling. David also enjoyed fishing - catching 396 steelhead in one season, just missing his goal of 400; painting cars; and paling around with his darling Papillon puppy, Charlcie.
David was very active at the First Church of God in Clarkston. He was instrumental in bringing the message of Celebrate Recovery to the community.
As a teenager, he became the yo-yo champion of Missouri at the state fair, winning an Indian motorcycle. He was a youth pastor in Sellwood Park Church of God in Portland. David was a member of the Asotin Grange Quartet that took a state championship in 1965.
David is survived by his true love, Polly, at their Clarkston home; his sons, Douglas Ogle of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Todd Kamps of Clarkston, Wade Kamps and Brian Kamps, both of Rogers, Ark., Troy Kamps of Spokane and Jeff Ogle of Clarkston; daughters, Becky Hanby of Fort Worth, Texas, and Heather Haynes of Pomeroy; mother, Charlcie Ogle of Great Bend, Kan., who is 101 years old; and brothers, Ron Ogle of Hutchinson, Kan., and Rev. Dick Ogle of Hoisington, Kan. He was preceded in death by his father, Rev. Edwin C. Ogle.
A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Tuesday at the First Church of God in Clarkston.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the First Church of God or to Celebrate Recovery.
