David Reese Hetherson, 62, of Hope passed away peacefully on September 5th, 2020 with his loving family by his bedside at Toni and Trish House of Auburn. He was born of (James B. Hetherson Sr) and (Carolyn Hetherson), June 14th, 1958. Upon moving to Michigan, God blessed him with two wonderful boys, Steven, and Isaac who he dedicated his life to raising.
David Hetherson lived his life fuller than most. Born and raised in Swansea Massachusetts, Dave spent his free time riding horses, boating around the Atlantic Ocean, and surrounding himself with people who loved life just as much as he did. David was the light in any room, with his contiguous smile and heart of gold, people naturally gravitated towards him. As Dave would always say, “sleep when you’re dead.” This is something he truly lived by and loved ones around him will keep his memory alive by living by his golden rule.
David is survived by his two children, Steven Hetherson (Alexandra Smith) and Isaac Hetherson, his brother, J. Barry Hetherson Jr., his nephew, Shayne Hetherson, his niece, Shannon Hetherson, and his beloved dog, Whiskey.
A private celebration of life will be held for family and friends at David’s residence on September 15th from 2-6pm.
In lieu of flowers those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider Toni & Trish House of Auburn.
