David Verl Reber

David Verl Reber left this life to join his loved ones on the other side on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 in St. George, Utah.  He was born to Ralph Verl Reber and Marilyn Anderson Reber on February 4, 1958.

David lived his life in the beautiful desert settlement of Mesquite, Nevada.  Despite David’s physical handicaps he could keep up with the best.  He was always here and there and everywhere riding his bicycle, or riding around on the motorized shopping cart in the stores.  He loved to talk and tell stories to whoever would listen.  David worked at the Virgin Valley High School as a custodian and considered himself a “Bulldog” through and through.  You would always see him at school functions especially ball games.  He spend as much time as he could outside working in his yard, fishing in the nearby lakes and streams and enjoying the beautiful desert air.  He also enjoyed watching emergency videos and visiting with the local fire department.

In June of 2003 he met the love of his life, Iola Ramona, with a short courtship they married at his Uncle Derald and Aunt Vyonne’s house in Mesquite and later was sealed in the St. George Temple on November 18, 2006.

David is survived by his mother, Marilyn Anderson; 2 brother’s,  Darren (Erika Reber) of Cedar City, Ut. and Dallas (Eva Reber) of Mesquite, NV; 3 sisters, Debbie Torres (Mike Torres) of Cedar City, UT, Elane Thompson (Tony Thompson) of Cedar City Ut, and Nonnie (Josh Sargent) of Indian Springs, NV; and other extended family members.  He was preceded in death by his father, Ralph Reber; his wife Iola Ramona.
