DAVID ALAN WESTERVELT (FMHS 1978) July 24, 2011 David A. Westervelt, 51, of Fort Myers, was born in Augusta, GA on 11/15/59. He joined his grandparents and father, Dr. Harold Westervelt, in heaven on 7/21/11. David, known as Davey, Dave or Westy to friends, or Day Day to family, left behind a very loving family and a long list of close pals who have been forever changed for the better by David's wisdom, humor and friendship. David was a graduate of Ft. Myers High School, Class of '77, and played football and also wrestled for the Green Wave. He loved the outdoors, especially fishing, hunting and snow skiing, and he was also known to have enjoyed a beer or two, and an occasional taste of Copenhagen. He was a devoted fan of University of Georgia football, much to the chagrin of his many pals who were equally devoted Gator fans. Football Saturdays in the Westervelt home were always crowded, lively and sometimes noisy affairs. David would no doubt like his friends to know that he spent his last days peacefully and without pain, sleeping on a Georgia Bulldogs pillow. David enjoyed life to the fullest during his fifty- one years. Though his time on earth was too short, he did a lot of good, and definitely left the world a better place for his having lived. He is survived by his mother, El Wanda Westervelt, sister, Susan Church, and brother-in-law, Spencer Church. He also left behind two nieces, Katie and Karly Church, who were the kids he never had. Dave always referred to many of his close family and friends, as his Coconut Head's. A beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, he will forever be with us in spirit and in our hearts beyond time. ==PICTURE== Service will be held Monday, July 25th, 6-8pm, at Hope Hospice Community Center, Health Park.

She saw beauty in everything and over the years attended the First Baptist Church of Fort Myers Beach and McGregor Baptist Church. She was very loyal to friends and family. She loved them all dearly. She always rooted for the underdog, especially during the ups and downs of the Dallas Cowboy football seasons. Scarlett had a good sense of humor and would tell the most interesting stories of her life's adventures. She is well loved and will be missed very much.
