David Wayne Mower

December 16,1951 – January 4,2024

A Wonderful Man Who Will Always be Loved

David Wayne Mower was born on December 16, 1951, and passed to a beautiful peaceful place on January 4, 2024. He is survived by his wife, Patti Mower, and son Matthew D. Mower. He also leaves behind his brothers Rick, Steve, Ron, Don and sister Susan.

Dave was a kind, loving, strong, intelligent man who loved and lived work and life with gusto and calmness. He worked as a Lineman and a Line Service Representative for the Clallam County PUD for many years.

He fought pulmonary fibrosis for a year and the last few months it became very aggressive, and he was under the care of Assured Hospice and died peacefully in his bed at home. He never complained and smiled every day to help others be comfortable around him.

A celebration of Dave’s life and memories will be held in Spring when the flowers are blooming. A BBQ such as he loved and would welcome everyone who knew him and has a story to share.

Linda Price Funeral home oversaw his death arrangements.
