David Earl Costner
August 3, 1964 – December 28, 2021

Memorial services for David Earl Costner, 57, of Cairo, GA, are at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, January 8, 2022, at the Trinity Anglican Church, 325 W Jackson St, Thomasville, GA.  Father David Trautman will officiate.  Mr. Costner passed away at Archbold Memorial Hospital in Thomasville, GA, on Tuesday, December 28, 2021.

Mr. Costner was born on August 3, 1964, in Rushville, NE, to Robert Gene Costner and the late Rita May Red Starr Costner.  David was a computer technical support specialist in his industry.  He was lovingly called “Chief” by his family and friends.  His family are members of the Trinity Anglican Church in Thomasville, GA.

David was an avid outdoorsman, hunting and fishing, until his diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and eventual retirement.  He had a quirky sense of humor, which was evident to everyone by his many Facebook posts about coffee and bacon.  He had the most inspiring, positive and upbeat attitude that helped carry him through many surgeries and illnesses that he endured these past years.  The love he had for his family will be wonderful memories for us to cherish forever.

Survivors include: his father, Robert G. “Smokey” Costner of Cairo, GA; brothers and sisters, Greg Costner (Siobhan) of Cairo, GA, Pamela Costner of Cairo, GA, Deborah Kelly (Kevin) of Bradenton, FL, Trinity Costner of Cairo, GA; and nieces and nephews, Katherine Kelly, Zachary Kelly, Dakota Costner, Jacob Costner, Chloe Folsom, Everleigh Costner, Alyssa Kia Shindel (Bret), and Dusty Kelly, all of Cairo, GA.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Rita M Costner.

Memorials may be made in Mr. Costner’s memory to a multiple sclerosis society of your choice.

The family will receive friends immediately following the memorial service in the Parish Hall at Trinity Anglican Church in Thomasville.
