He is lovingly survived by his wife of 50 years, Barbara, and his children, Kymm and husband Lester Paul Nixon, Kyla Gust, David and wife Debra Behrens, Jay and wife Becca Behrens, Lee and wife Ronda Behrens. He is also survived by 13 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, and his brothers Frank Behrens, Raymond Behrens, and sister Barbara Ann Oakes.

He was preceded in death by his parents, two grandsons, Justin Behrens and Landon Nixon, and one son-in-law Fred Gust.

David took his role as head of our family very seriously and raised us all to love the Lord, love our families, to never quit, and to always keep working for what you want.

He loved work, especially cowboying and driving his 18 wheeler (better known as Poppy Truck). Roping steers and jammin’ gears were two of his favorite things.

As a little boy he was a member of Mason, Texas’ first little league team. As he grew up he became an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to Pop’s favorite charity: Hill Country Youth Ranch, 3522 Junction Hwy., Ingram, TX 78025.
