A son of the late Harold C. and Kathryn N. (Martin) Hanlon, David, as he was known by family and friends, was born at New Matamoras, Ohio, on June 14, 1939.

David was a 1957 graduate of Midvale High School. Out of high school, he entered into the United States Navy where he served a period of time aboard the USS Walker and also served multiple tours of duty in Vietnam. Following more than twelve years of service with the Navy, he completed the final eight years of his career with the National Guard.

David was a long-time employee of Superior Meats at Massillon, Ohio, and the Pepsi-Cola Company at New Philadelphia. He was an avid NASCAR fan and enjoyed spending time working on his flower gardens that surrounded his home. He also loved bird watching and sitting outside in his gazebo during the summer months.

He was a wonderful husband and father to his blended family that includes his wife, Jane Murphy-Hanlon and children, Michelle (Brad) Moore of Tuscarawas, Jason Malterer of New Philadelphia, Kellie Murphy of New York, NY, and Scott (Pam) Murphy of Columbus, Ohio.

A sister, Kaye (John) Walton of Goshen and a brother, Donald (LaVonne) Hanlon of Laurel, Maryland; a brother-in-law and sister-in-law, James and Helen Rosenberry of Dover, Ohio; five grandchildren: Christopher Grimes, Kayleigh Moore, Nicholas Moore, Timothy Murphy and Kacey Murphy and numerous nieces and nephews complete the family.

He attended schools in Laurel and Ft. Meade, Maryland and graduated from the Randolph-Macon Academy in Front Royal, Virginia on May 31, 1980. With ambition to become a forest ranger, he enrolled at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia.

He worked as a computer operator for Frank A. Serio & Sons in Jessup, Maryland and was working a summer job at Arbitron in Beltsville, Maryland when he was involved in a fatal automobile accident en route from Arbitron to Serios on Thursday, July 25, 1985.

The family then relocated to Tuscarawas County where their daughter, Kaye, was born at Union Hospital in Dover, Ohio in 1943.

The family resided in a home located below the Goshen Church of the Nazarene with the David Zeisberger sign beside it. As they were sitting on their front porch, family members would wave to all who passed by.
