David spent most of his work career at Brach’s Candy Factory in Sullivan, but he lived to play his music on the week-ends. He had mastered the “bent note” style of Floyd Cramer. The last several years he has used his God given gift to play in Church for the Glory of God. He collected records and loved old Westerns.

He is survived by his wife, Janet of Sullivan; son, Mark Bratton of Sullivan; step-son, Brian (Amy) Duzan of Tulsa, OK; step-daughter, Shannon (Jeff) Moon of Sullivan. He is also survived by 3 grandchildren.

David was preceded in death by his parents.
