David Lake Cruise, 67, of Montgomery County, went home to be with the lord and all his past loved ones, on Friday, March 18, 2022, at home in Blacksburg, to rejoin with his father, Aubrey Adolphus Cruise; his mother, Mary Francis Cruise; his children, David “Scotty” Cruise, Lindsey Cruise Ford, and Thomas Christopher “Chris” Cruise; his sister, Rodonna Sutphin; and his spouse, Deborah Roman Cruise, whom he lost earlier this month. He came into this world in Montgomery County on March 20, 1954.
He was a retired Virginia Tech employee and a faithful member of the Harley-Davidson community. David was dearly loved by all his family and friends and celebrated the life of his late children. His grandchildren will dearly miss their pawpaw’s presence.
He is survived by his son, David “Shawn” Cruise; sisters Pam Young and Belinda Hypes; nephew John Young; nieces Whitney Young and Mary Dennis; grandchildren Sophia Cruise, Ella Cruise, Peyton Cruise, Aubrey Ford, Casandra Cruise, Oceanna Matney, Joseph Culverhouse, Johnathon Cruise, and Raven Cruise, his Harley-Davidson family, many extended family members, and many dear friends.
He wanted peace in his life, and we all know that peace only comes when God calls us home and may he find peace and comfort in heaven.
