David Lee Rhone Ii

David Lee Rhone Jr. was born on January 12, 1951 to David and Bernice (Wells) Rhone in Des Moines, Iowa.

He was educated in the Des Moines Public School system, and graduated from Tech High in 1969. He played varsity basketball at Tech.

David grew up in Kyles AME Zion church under Rev. Oscar Peavy.

In 1971 David joined the United States Air Force where he served as Security Police. After his discharge David worked many types of jobs and in his later years became much of a handyman working on cars, houses or whatever needed fixing.

David was a homebody and a very direct person. He was generally quiet until you bothered him and then he would hit you with that dry wit that would have every body laughing. He was a self taught mechanic and a very good one at that. He liked growing things in the garden and was a good cook , too. David also liked to fish and if he was in the mood, he would treat you to his singing.

David married Opal Tate and one daughter, Lori Ann Rhone was born from that union. Later, David married Pamela Humburd and their children are Tony Humburd, DeSeana Humburd and David Rhone III.

David passed away March 14, 2017 at the age of 66. David is preceded in death by his parents, David Sr and Bernice Rhone, his brother, Dickie and his long time companion, Celeste White

Left to mourn his passing are his children, Lori Washington and David Phone III; his siblings. Duane Rhone, Judy (Ron) McClain, Joyce (Steve) Vaughn, Don (Lynn) Rhone, John Rhone, Jean Parker, Janise Rhone and Jeannette Rhone, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and a host of friends and family.
