David Hugo Nava passed away from this life and was welcomed into the arm of our Lord on April 21, 2023, at the young age of 70 years. He was born in Laredo, Texas on December 26, 1952, to Pedro and Lucha Menchaca Nava.

David was always a lover of the outdoors. He enjoyed having BBQ with his family, fishing, hunting, which he processed his own deer meat, and hanging out with good friends. He dabbled in taxidermy for a while and his work was remarkable. We love him so much and now he will be watching over and guiding us though life. David loved spending all his time with family and no matter what challenges he had, he always managed to help anyone in need. A true inspiration to all who knew and loved him; he will be fondly remembered and loved by all who graced his presence.
