December 10, 1958 - October 19, 2018

David Alan Markham David Alan Markham, 59, died unexpectedly Friday, Oct. 19, from natural causes stemming from a rare condition he did not know he had.
David was born Dec. 10, 1958, in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Donald and Martha (Burt) Markham.
On May 27, 1990, he married Rosanne Schneider in Anaheim, California. She survives along with their two children, Samantha and Weston Markham, who reside in Goshen. Also surviving are his father, Donald Markham, Goshen; sister, Darlene (Steve) Gill, West Chester, Ohio; adopted brother, Mark (Maria) Markham, Guam, and their two children and niece, Megan (Jerry) Williams, Little Elm, Texas.
He was preceded in death by his mother.
David was a local chiropractor and sole proprietor of Markham Chiropractic in Dunlap. He was devoted to his patients, adored his children and loved his wife and family. He enjoyed music and still played the base guitar and piano. He used to road race motorcycles and would ride his GX1000s Suzuki whenever he could. He was an avid attendee of local high school football games.
According to his wishes, his body was donated to a teaching facility so that the next generation may have a hands-on learning experience about the human body.
Interment will take place at a later date in a private ceremony at Violett Cemetery, Goshen.
