Obituary for David William McGrew

David William McGrew, 65, of Mars Hill, passed away on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at the Memorial Campus of Mission Hospitals in Asheville.

Born on March 13, 1953 in Cleveland, OH, he was a son of the late William and Joann Jenkins McGrew. He was an alumnus of North Carolina State University class of 1975 where he received a B.S. in Forestry and a B.S. in Wildlife Biology. He was employed for 19 years with the U.S. Forest Service and served as a firefighter and also as a Hot Shot crew member, 13 years with Ivy River Forestry as the owner and consulting forester, and most recently with Givens Estate.

David enjoyed being outdoors and had a passion for gardening. As one of the friendliest people you would ever meet, he never knew a stranger. He was a huge fan of North Carolina State University basketball and football.

Surviving are his wife, Pamela S. McGrew; children: James McGrew of Mocksville, Michael McGrew of Melbourne, FL, and Erin McGrew of Mars Hill; grandchildren, Robert and Sidney McGrew; stepmother, Janet McGrew of Columbia, SC; and sisters: Betty Byrd (Bill) of Charlotte, Linda Herring (Ross) of Ashland, VA, and Sally Rudkin (Jim) of Mechanicsville, VA.
