This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.

The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Obituary for David L. Fleetwood

David Lee Fleetwood, 62, of Saylorsburg died suddenly on Monday, August 5 2013.

He was the husband of Pamela (Luck) Fleetwood. They had observed their 31st wedding anniversary in November.

Born in Milford, DE and raised in Seaford, DE he was a son of Ann (Trice) Fleetwood Meritt of Bridgeville, DE and the late Arthur Lee Fleetwood.

David served his country in the Air Force and then joined IBM in Richmond, VA. David retired after a successful career as manager with IBM, a career which began in Virginia over 40 years ago and eventually brought him to Chestnuthill Township. Retirement was a new chapter for David and it allowed him to do what he had a real passion for, and that was to help others, whether individually, or as a group. He could be counted on to plow driveways during snowstorms, cut trees down, or anything else that would aid a friend or neighbor.

Dave was president of the West End Little League for many years and he was running for his second term as Chestnuthill Township Supervisor this year.

Dave worked tirelessly to help run the parking at Pocono Raceway, allowing volunteer groups to raise money for their organizations.

Dave's most recent activities have included raising funds for our regional park through the West End Park and Open Space Commission. He was also involved with the celebration of Chestnuthill Township's 250th anniversary.

In addition to his wife and mother, Dave is survived by two sons, Chad Matthew Fleetwood of Alexandria, VA and Christopher Lee Fleetwood of East Stroudsburg; a daughter, Elizabeth Ashley Harrison and her husband Brad of Henryville; three sisters, Linda Littleton and her husband Ed of Seaford, DE, Mary Fleetwood of Spring Hill, FL and Susan Fleetwood of Galestown, MD; a brother Alan Fleetwood and his wife Krista of Newark, DE and three grandchildren, Jacob and Lee Fleetwood of Alexandria, VA and Emily Harrison of Henryville.

Funeral services will be held at 3:00 PM on Sunday, August 11 from the Kresge Funeral Home, 1763 Route 209 Brodheadsville. A visitation will be held on Saturday from 6:00 to 8:00 PM and on Sunday from 1:00 PM until the time of the service.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Friends of West End Park and Open Space Commission, P.O> Box 243, Brodheadsville, PA 18322.
