David Castner Obituary

David Castner, 78, beloved Father, Grandfather and Friend, was called to his eternal resting place on December 1, 2023. He entered this world on May 23, 1945 in Battle Creek, MI, born to Earl and Neola Castner. 

David is survived by his son Daniel (Megan) Castner, daughter Brandy (Drew) Bowerman, and grandchildren Alaina Castner, Anthony (Hillary) Kaufman, Karissa (Tim) Robinson, Chase (Shelby) Bowerman and 8 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his mother Neola Castner, his father Earl Castner, his brother Norman Castner, and his wife Shirley Henry-Castner. 

David served in the Army from 1964 - 1977, reaching the rank of Sergeant. He was a decorated Vietnam veteran who loved to boast that he was the only cook with top secret security clearance. After his honorable discharge in 1977, he continued to serve in the Army National Guard until 1990. David was a loyal member of the VFW Post No. 5645 of Findlay, Ohio. 

David spent many years camping in Van Buren, Ohio where he made many life-long friends. When he wasn't traveling around to flea markets or watching Westerns with the volume on 90, David could be found socializing with neighbors, family and friends, telling stories of the past and inviting everyone that drove by to come up to his bar for a drink. 

A visitation for David will be held on Thursday, December 7, 2023 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm at Deck-Hanneman Funeral Home, 1460 W. Wooster Street, Bowling Green. Military Honors will be rendered on Saturday, December 9, 2023 at 3:00pm at Adventurebound Campground, 12611 Township Road 218, Van Buren.
