David Joseph Killinger

April 17, 1959 — March 31, 2024

KILLINGER – David Joseph “Flame,” 64, rose to new life, Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024. Born April 17, 1959, in Johnstown, son of Walter R. “Tim” and Delores J. (Horrell) Killinger. Preceded in death by parents; sisters, Karen Yatsky and Sally Killinger; and nephew, Justin Killinger. 

Survived by siblings, William “Killer” Killinger (Liz); Susan (Paul Yatsky); Thomas “Mouse” Killinger (Donna); brother-in-law, Francis “Dan” Yatsky; and numerous nieces, nephews, and dear friends. 

David was a graduate of Forest Hills High School, class of 1977 and member of South Fork First Evangelical Church. He was an avid fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. He had a knack for striking up conversations with everyone he met. His warm smile reflected his kind spirit and he could find humor in any situation. In choosing to be an organ and tissue donor, he leaves a legacy of hope and healing.

Friends will be received from 4 p.m. until time of service at 7 p.m. Thursday at Charles O. Dimond Funeral Home, Inc., South Fork.
