David S. Carothers

David Smith Carothers, 68, of Bristol, CT went home to be with his Lord on April 18, 2017. He was born October 27, 1948 and grew up in Wallingford, CT. With a passion for evangelism, he shared The Gospel in the Meriden/Wallingford areas as well as across the country while driving trucks.  When not traveling as an owner-operator for Carothers’ Carriers, he would be spending time at area Dunkin Donuts with an infectious smile, an outpouring of Love for everyone and kind encouraging words for anyone with an open ear.   His Love for people was truly amazing and lived by the saying, “There are no strangers here; Only friends I haven’t yet met.”  
David leaves his wife Antoinette, children Heather, Victoria, Adeline and David of Tennessee, Troy of Florida, Sherri, Carey and Jeremy of Connecticut and 14 grandchildren. He also leaves his brothers, Scott, Wayne and Barry and their families.
He was predeceased by his parents James and Shirley and his brother George of Florida. 
His last post summarizes his heart: “Everyone who lives in Me and believes in Me will never ever die” John 11:25
Memorial services will be announced.
The family thanks you all for your condolences.   Should friends and family desire, please consider making a donation to your local homeless shelter in Davids name.  A Memorial Service will be at 6:00 Pm Friday, April 28, 2017 at Wolcott Christian Life Center 481 Wolcott Ed. Wolcott, CT Dunn funeral Home 191 West St. Bristol is in charge of the arrangements.

Deepest condolences for your family's loss. May your family find comfort in the scriptural hope found at Revelation 21:4"..death will be no more.., the former things have passed away."

We are so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort, Jehovah, look after you during this most difficult time. In the book of Revelation 21:3,4 there is a beautiful promise he gives where he says that soon will come a time when death, mourning, and tears will be no more. May thoughts and scriptures like this be of comfort to you during this most difficult time.

My heart goes out to the Carothers family. So many memories from my younger years. The Carothers were there for me in some of my toughest moments.
God bless all of you.
