David Bruce Cumming, a native of Fort Worth, TX, passed away peacefully at home after a brief illness on Sunday, August 23rd, 2015.  Dave was born May 2, 1949 to Richard Alton and Foye R. Gilley Cumming.  Dave is survived by his loving wife Melodie Lynn, son Dr. Jeffery Cumming and wife Leslie, of Ardmore, OK.,  and step-children Michael and Amelia Bourassa.  He is a proud grandparent to Lily, and twins, Lila and Luke Cumming.

Dave majored in Journalism at Texas Christian University after graduating from Arlington Heights High School.   His life work has always connected to his love for flying, history, literature, nature, and the art of writing.  He excelled as an editor, photographer, and contracted as a technical writer with leading companies in the aeronautics industry such as General Dynamics, Bell Helicopter, Raytheon, etc. and most recently, Beumer Glidepath of Arlington, TX.   This year he authored and illustrated his first book, “My Mane Tails,” which is dedicated to his granddaughter, Lily.  The book celebrates their mutual appreciation for horses and shares his “Stories About the Horses I Have Known.” Dave is a humble servant of God with many gifts, loving friends, and is greatly missed.
