David G. Ransom


David Glenn "Pappy" Ransom, 66, of Springdale, passed away Tuesday, April 21, 2020, in Cheswick Rehabilitation and Wellness Center, after he fought a valiant battle with metastatic prostate cancer. He was born Dec. 18, 1953, to his late parents, Gilbert and Margaret Mueller Ransom, and had been a longtime member of the community. He worked for Jarrell & Rea Seafoods for 20 years. Dave drove truck for ECM Trucking until his medical retirement in 2001. He was a volunteer for the Salvation Army and could be seen ringing the bell during the holiday season. He was a deacon at the Open Bible Church in Springdale and enjoyed watching the Pirates and Steelers, decorating the garage for Halloween for the neighborhood children and collecting Santa figurines. Dave loved Christmas movies, fishing, attending CLO shows, Dave had a sweet tooth and always had to stop at Oakmont Bakery after any of his treatments, but the greatest joy in his life was spending time with his family.
