School Activities, Showing, Funeral, etc.

Today is a busy day for us. Ms. Burrito has to dress up as an Angel  with other students at church then after that we have to go to the school gym for their Halloween event, Mr. Burrito is part of it too. We won't be able to attend the showing of my BIL that is scheduled at 1:00-3:00 pm today but we are going there tonight for the showing at 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. Friends can leave messages for the family by signing the guest book at Greco-Hertnick website.  The photo below was taken the day before my BIL's surgery, the last Easter  we spent with him.
Lesson learned from this ordeal:  Ask a second opinion from other doctor about your pain.  When he was  having  severe stomach pain, the doctor told him that it was an acid reflux but it was actually the cancer that was causing his pain.  Your memory will remain in our hearts Dave, you're a great guy to cherish forever!

Surrounded by his family, David Jennings Cottrill, 57, of Weirton, passed away Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at his home. Born March 12, 1954 in Weirton, he was a son of Jennings Lee Cottrill of Weirton and the late Nadine Cox Cottrill. He was also preceded in death by his Brother Harold Cottrill.

With 30 years of service, David retired from Weirton Steel where he worked at various jobs in the Tin Mill. He also owned and operated Cottrill's Auto in Weirton. An avid fisherman, he was a member of the WSX 25-Year Club. Most of all, David enjoyed the time spent with his family. 

David is survived by his wife of 33 years, Michale Campbell Cottrill, of Weirton; sons Bryan David Cottrill and Lee Michael Cottrill and his wife Leanne; daughter Tina Marie Pavel all of Weirton; brothers Rick Cottrill and his wife Jill and John Cottrill and his wife Rose; sister Crystal Bolock; grandchildren Kalee and Shaye Cottrill and Matthew Pavel and his loving dog, Jack.

Friends will be received Sunday from 1-3 and 6-8PM at the Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home, 3219 Main Street, Weirton, where funeral services will be celebrated 11:00AM Monday. The Reverend Larry Barkley will officiate. Interment will be in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, Weirton.
