David Lee Lance, 73, of Brevard, passed away at home with his wife and son by his side Tuesday, May 19, 2020, ending his long battle with cancer.

A Brevard native, he was the first-born son of Frank Marion “Trick” and Arona Daves Lance, who preceded him in death along with his half-sister Leona Galloway.

After graduating from Brevard High School in 1966, he began working at Olin before being drafted for the Vietnam War in 1968. He completed Army training at Fort Bragg and was then honorably discharged due to hardship induced by his father’s medical issues. Afterwards, he continued working at Olin before switching careers to be a truck driver.

He met his wife of 32 years, Rosa Lance, in 1988, and retired in 2012. He was also a 15-year member of the Brevard Jaycees and enjoyed the comfort of home, good barbecue, Western films and classic cars.

He will be remembered as a reliable, lovingly strong-willed and supportive man of few words.

He is survived by his wife, Rosa Lance; his brothers, James Galloway and Joe Lance; six children, Jeff Lance, Stacie Simpson, Liza Chevalier, Eddie Lance, Kayla Lance and T.J. Lance; six grandchildren; and a large extended family throughout the Brevard community.

A chapel service and celebration of life were held privately Sunday, May 24, 2020 at Moody-Connolly Funeral Home.

A public service will be held at a later date.
