David Brooke Hipsley of Buford Georgia, passed away on November 7, 2020 at Emory Saint Joseph Hospital in Sandy Springs, Georgia, from complications brought on by coronavirus, COVID-19.  Born January 7, 1956 in Alexandria, Virginia to Mildred Maxine Hipsley (died July 2019) and Howard Brooke Hipsley (died April 1999), he lived but 64 years – the same age his father was called home.  Their reunion in heaven will be joyous, and at the same time, heart-breaking, as the devastation of this pandemic has taken far too many, too soon.  We hold fast to the fond memories we have of David, which are everlasting.  

Upon graduating from Mount Vernon High School, David left Virginia for adventures in Florida, where he married Sandra Nadine Amon (currently residing in Young America, Minnesota).  Together they had two sons, Jonathan Brooke Hipsley (currently residing with his wife, Jennifer, and 2 daughters, Danika and Olivia, in Winder, Georgia), and Christopher David Hipsley (currently residing with his wife, Mandi, and their 2 children, Isabella and Keegan in Young America, Minnesota).

In 1979, David joined the Air Force, specializing in Entomology, and was a Technical Training Instructor.  After enlisting in Jacksonville, FL, he and his family spent time in Wichita Falls, TX, had an overseas tour in Okinawa, Japan, and then Barksdale, LA.  After eleven years, David was ready to move on, putting the skills he learned in the Air Force to play in the commercial sector, with Rollins, Inc., in Sanford, FL.  David excelled in developing on-line training courses for Rollins, and climbed the ladder to become the Manager of the company’s corporate Learning Management System, ultimately relocating to Atlanta, GA.  

As he neared retirement, David bought an RV, and he and his partner and travelling companion, Jamie Marie Ballon (residing in Buford, GA), planned to tour the country with their two dogs, Daisy and Snickers.  His dreams of seeing this beautiful country, which he loved dearly, will not be fulfilled – not, at least, as he planned; his view of it now will sadly be from a very different perspective.

In addition to those noted above, David also leaves behind two younger sisters, Cathy Lane Musselman (residing in Durand, IL) and Terry Lynn Watson (residing in Lorton, VA).

Due to the current pandemic and constraints with travel and social gatherings, the family has opted against a memorial service, to ensure the safety and health of all family members and friends.  Please keep David’s loved ones in your prayers as they adjust to this very unexpected loss.  May David’s memory live on in our hearts forever.  

David’s care has been placed in the trust of Georgia Funeral Care & Cremation Services, 4671 S. Main St., Ackworth, GA, http://www.georgiafuneralcare.com

It was a sad day when heard about the loss of David. My most sincere condolences to his family, my prayers are with you. Being a former Orkin employee, I had the privilege of working with David remotely (Colorado to Georgia). He was such a great man and was always willing to assist and was always there for you. He definitely had a lasting, positive impact on my life. A great man is an understatement. Reply to this comment

Over the years of working with him I have had hundreds of conversations and never did he fail to help solve my problems, make my life easier and make me laugh in the process. I will miss him dearly.

Please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of your dear father and friend. David was a valued learning partner here at Rollins. He was one of the first people I worked with when I started with HomeTeam, a sister brand, over 11 years ago and I will always remember his excellent knowledge, skills and command of the LMS, the speed with which he would respond to ANY question I had and the way he communicated, a style all his own! He would talk fondly about his time in Texas, where I live and work and it was obvious he had some special memories. I know you are all feeling the grief and loss on his death and our hearts hurt for you all. Lifting prayer for the Hipsley family to feel His comfort and peace in moments of time, that increase, as you move forward. Reply to this comment

I am so sad for David’s loss. A true team player. He was always willing to help me at work. He called on me many times to test out the solutions he created using his test criterion statement- “if Tman can do it anyone can!” I am at a loss for words. Everyone l know thought highly of David. May his generosity, kindness to others and his fun loving demeanor be long remembered by those of us who had the privilege to work and play with him. David, R.I.P. Reply to this comment

Sincere condolences to his partner Jamie, and his son’s, daughters in law, grandchildren and extended family. This truly is a very sad loss and so sudden it is hard to comprehend. David was a generous man with his time and energy to help his colleagues whenever they were in need, and did so with a pleasant nature and sense of humour! Although we worked from a distance (in Canada) I had the pleasure of meeting David many times and working with him on dozens of projects. His presence will be missed by many. Soar with the angels my friend. Reply to this comment
