Obituary

The family of  David Brock will celebrate his life of 67 years at 11:30 AM on Saturday, July 10, 2021, at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers. He passed on Tuesday, June 29, 2021. We invite you to view the live-streamed service here on this page, sign his virtual guestbook, and download his memorial keepsake folder to your device for printing. We also ask that you consider viewing his Life Tribute, a video of photographs set to his favorite music.

On August 16, 1953, David Brock was born to Daymond and Virginia Brock in Seminole, Texas.  He is the second oldest child in the Brock family born after his brother, Mike.  David’s birth was followed by two more siblings, Dayna and Scott, to complete the Brock family.

David married Lynette Christian on November 11, 1977, in Lubbock, Texas.  His marriage came with a daughter, Michelle, from Lynette’s previous marriage.  David also had a daughter from a previous marriage, Brandee.  In 1979, David and Lynette welcomed twin boys, Cody and Cory, to complete their family.  David was preceded in death by his son, Cory.

When David was little, his mom, Gina, could find him anywhere because his hair was brighter than the field of grain.  He was also a bit of a prankster.  He loved to scare people, namely his parents, but was also scared of the dark himself.  He liked to play tricks to get a laugh.  This continued throughout his adult life and he was a fun person to have around.

Track was one of David’s talents as he was growing up.  He competed in State Cross-Country Track Meets and even ran a marathon while in junior high.  His calves were so big in high school that his mom had to cut the back of his jeans.  David always reminisced about his time running and competing in track.

David had a near-death experience at 18 years old when he was electrocuted during a strong lightning and thunderstorm near Brownfield, Texas.  A downed high tension wire was the cause of the accident that occurred when he and his friends were attempting to get their car out of a ditch.

While repairing an oil rig, David had another near-death experience at work when the base of the oil rig caved in.  He, fortunately, grabbed on to part of the rig, which saved him from falling to his death, but the accident took part of his thumb.

David was a proud, hard-working Christian man.  He had a reputation as a dedicated and reliable man and was known for his phenomenal work ethic.  His entire career was spent with one company, Amoco, now known as Occidental Petroleum.  David started working as a Roustabout, then became a Pumper, and ended his career as a Maintenance Man (pump mechanic).  He worked from the age of 20 until his early retirement just a few years ago.

David had a contagious laugh and smile that could light up a room.  He was a kind and loving person.  David loved to make jokes and tell stories.  He was a man of God and loved Jesus his whole life.  He inspired many people and turned many to or closer to God.  The loss of one of his sons, Cory, did not shake his faith but strengthened his faith in God.

Survivors include his wife, Lynette Brock; children, Michelle (Marcus) Young, Cody (Niatalie) Brock, Brandee Gallegos; grandchildren, Annika Young, Mallory Brock, Natalie Brock, Ella Brock, Dakota Brock; his parents Daymond and Virginia Brock; siblings, Mike (Mary) Brock, Dayna (Kyle) King, Scott (Roberta) Brock.

He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.  We are all fortunate to have our memories and stories to remember him to keep us smiling until we see him again one day.  This memorial is but a celebration of David’s life.
