David W. “Fuzz” Wilfong

David W. “Fuzz” Wilfong, of rural South Whitley, died unexpectedly on his farm

from natural causes on Sunday, July 31, 2022. He was 71 years old.

Born on July 22, 1951, in Wabash, Indiana, to the late William and Bonnie (Fitch) Wilfong.

Growing up in South Whitley, he graduated from South Whitley High School in 1969. Quickly determining that factory work was not for him, he embarked on a life-long career as a farmer. Brand loyal to his farm power equipment, he preferred the red ones – International Harvester. Through the years, he enjoyed Wednesday night bowling, playing golf with his brother-in-law, Jim, and friends at the area courses.

Surviving are his siblings, Rex (Sandra) Wilfong of Huntington, Donna (Jim) Baxter of South Whitley, and Patricia (Warren) Harlan of Pierceton.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Evelyn Patrick, and a brother, Robert Wilfong.

A memorial gathering of family and friends is from 4 - 7 p.m. Tuesday at Smith & Sons Miller Chapel, South Whitley.

Preferred memorials in Wilfong’s honor are to the Whitko FFA.
