David William Oliver

August 31, 1966 ~ October 26, 2018 (age 52)


David William Oliver, Keo, AR, born August 31, 1966 to Joanne Bryant and Tony Oliver (deceased)  in Piscataway, MD; died of neuro-endocrine cancer October 26, 2018.

David died too young, His niece Abby expressed our feelings well. David will leave "his imprint on our hearts . There doesn't seem to be the right words to say whom had been touched by his life, or to explain that we are, because he was. His talent and collections were his collage, an exterior manifestation of who he was. He didn't give up until the very end, and neither will his memory. So here's to hello, DD, for the journey we can't follow, not this time. We love you."

David attended Riverdale Baptist School in MD, where his mother taught, as well as Liberty University in VA. The family moved between Keo and D.C. several times, and David enjoyed his summers with his Grandmother Virgie Burleson Bryant.

David returned to Washington in 1993 and worked in Real Estate, and as a manager for William Sonoma, then Restoration Hardware. He loved restoring and flipping old homes.

In 2008 he returned to Arkansas to care for his parents. Like his mother, David was  always caring for others..

At an early age, David and his mother started collecting antiques. His friend Lewis Dean Morris and David always had an eye for the unique pieces at an Estate Sale. David worked at Morris Antiques in sales and refurbishing old pieces.

David adored his sister Sally Larsen, his niece Abby (Joe), nephew David (Bianca) Larsen and great niece little Jade, all of Kansas City, MO. He will be missed by many, especially his sister, whom he talked with everyday, as well as friends and family from Arkansas to Washington. Keo will not be the same.

A memorial service will be Saturday, November 17th at 10:00 AM by Wilson Robison Funeral Home of England, AR. Online guest book can be signed at
