It is with great sadness that we announce the death of David L. JOBE, superintendent of the Grand River Limestone Co.'s
quarry at the site near Allendale, MO.
Dave, 48 years of age, served his country with the navy during World War II, and had been a faithful employee of the
Grand River Limestone Co. for almost fourteen years. He loved his work at the quarry.
He was a person who met life's challenges and mastered from them. Dave was a hard worker and never gave up, for his life
and all of life were to him a challenge. He fought on and was still fighting for his life when he slipped away in the
early morning hours on May 20, 1960.
There was something big and fine about Dave which everyone liked down deep in his heart. He was a tireless worker and
his achievements and success were his own. He gained much satisfaction from a job well done, an attribute to which he
aspired throughout his lifetime.
Dave was skilled with his hands and his skill was exemplified in the home and shop he had erected in Tingley, which
community he called home. He was interested in civic and community affairs and one of the highlights of his life was
when the people of Tingley expressed their faith in him by electing him mayor. He also served as a member of the school
board and was a charter member of the Tingley Lions Club.
We deem it a great privilege to have counted Dave as friend and fellow-worker.
Our deepest sympathy is extended to his good wife, children, grandchildren and other loved ones.

NOTE:David was interred at Tingley Cemetery, Tingley, Ringgold Co., Iowa.
