David D. Chapman
Dave would want it to be known foremost that he lived a life which followed the footsteps of Christ. Though he would be slow to utter such a claim, it was through his actions he stated it to all he encountered. He was a family man, born in Ashland, but a graduate of Mifflinburg Area High School. He was true to his wife, to his mother and to his boys. It was his pleasure to help from afar when requested, and hop in the truck and be off when called upon. His family knew that his steadfast love always made Dave a consistent servant and leader.
Though his good works pale in comparison to his faith and his character, it was through his efforts that he reached into the lives of many. He owned and operated an insurance agency in Mifflinburg for 21 years; he attended Buffalo Valley Church of the Brethren; he was a past member of Mifflinburg Church of the Nazarene; and he was past president of the Mifflinburg Little League, in which he began the T-ball program, the Mifflinburg Kiwanis Club and Family Health Council of Harrisburg. He served on the board of directors of SUM Child Development, Family Health Council of Harrisburg and Mifflinburg Church of the Nazarene. He died a public servant as the mayor of Mifflinburg.
Dave Chapman will be missed. Surviving him are his loving wife, Dottie Chapman, his mother, Doris Chapman, as well as his children and their families: Ken Chapman, Doug and Jenn Chapman, and Joe, Shonda, Josiah and Quincy Chapman.
