David was the hardest working man and worked for 25 years at Tyco Simplex Grinnell. He loved his job and had the strongest of work ethics. He cared for his fellow workers like they were family and loved sharing his stories about work with his family when he got home each evening.
He enjoyed spending every possible moment with his family. He adored his grandchildren. Whenever he had time he would watch old westerns on the television and every so often enjoy a football game. David had a great sense of humor and had the ability to make everyone laugh. His big hearty laugh was enjoyed by all who knew him. He loved to joke and tease people and underneath his hearty laugh was a sensitive and compassionate man. Whenever there was music playing in the house Tina and David would dance for hours and they danced like they had been together forever. He was a loving husband, father, special brother and friend.
David was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Royce Gallup, his sister, Linda Gail Scott and brother-in-law Jerry Scott.
He is survived by his wife Tina Gallup of Kerens; his children, Phyllis Burke and husband, Jeff of Mabank, David Scott Gallup of Kerens, Tara Kellie Gallup of Kerens and Anthony Kyle Gallup of Kerens; his grandchildren A.J. and Chloe Gallup, Shelbie and Kaitlyn Gallup and Jeremy Burke, and one great-grandchild.
