Obituary

David Patrick Phelps, 67, went to meet his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on October 28, 2019, following a 15-month battle with incurable brain cancer.

Dave leaves his wife of 45 years, Diane (Hart) Phelps, children Eric, Shawn, Lee, and Victoria; sisters, Barbara and Josephine, and brother Bill. He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Dorothy Phelps, and his brother John.

Dave was born in Ft. Morgan, Colorado in 1952. He graduated from Adrian High School in Adrian, Oregon in 1970 and from Eastern Oregon State College in 1974. He met the love of his life, Diane, in 1972 while attending college, and the two were married in 1974.

Dave and Diane raised their family in Pocatello, Idaho and resided there for 28 years. Dave served his community as a Pocatello Police Officer for 26 years. Following his retirement in 2005, Dave and Diane joined the Peace Corps and moved to Bila Tserkva, Ukraine for 27 months to teach English in local schools. Dave and Diane were active members of the Bila Tserkva Church of Christ where Dave occasionally preached sermons in Russian.

Following their service in the Peace Corps, Dave and Diane moved to Hood River, Oregon in 2008. Dave served as a Community Service Officer with the Hood River Police Department for 5 years, and served as an Elder in the Hood River Church of Christ for 10 years.

Dave’s passion was preaching and teaching the good news of Jesus Christ around the world. He was able to do so in churches in many states and international countries. His hobbies were woodworking, hunting, traveling, and spending time with his children and grandchildren.

A memorial service for Dave will be held 5:30 P.M., Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 at the Hood River Church of Christ (1512 Tucker Rd, Hood River, OR 97031). A public viewing and time to greet with family is planned for 4:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M., Friday, November 1st, 2019 at Anderson's Tribute Center (Funerals • Receptions • Cremations) 1401 Belmont Avenue, Hood River, Oregon 97031

In lieu of flowers, Diane has asked for donations to go to Orphans Lifeline International in tribute to Dave.

We were saddened to learn of Dave's passing. Michael worked with Dave for 26 years. He would often have conversations with Dave, usually about work, and sometimes we did not agree, but we would always leave the conversation knowing there were no hard feelings and we were still friends. He often spoke of his wife and children of whom he was very proud. He was very involved with his church and you knew he always followed God's teachings, which inspired me greatly. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.

I had the pleasure of working with Dave while working at the front desk of City Hall. He always had a smile on his face and therefore made me smile. There are some people that are just happy no matter what. Dave was one of those people.

Both of us had the distinct pleasure of working with Dave during his time with the Pocatello Police Dept. Dave was a great guy to work with and you could be sure he always had his ducks in row.
Dave spoke lovingly and highly of his sweet wife and kids, and his church meant the world to him. Dave is no longer in pain and is in a wonderful place now. God speed Dave, it was a pleasure to have known you. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time

I am proud to say I was able to work with Dave for 21 years. He would keep you on your toes and challenge you with NEW dictionary vocabulary words. Not only was he a Police Officer, he also got the special assignment to simultaneously run City of Pocatello Animal Control for a while before retirement. Many people were blessed by knowing Dave and his caring personality. Praying for strength and healing to his wonderful family.
