David Barclay

February 29, 1952 — January 30, 2022

Waco, Texas

David Barclay, age 17.5 (69), of Axtell, entered the gates of Heaven, Sunday, January, 30, 2022.  A Celebration of his life will be 2:30 pm, Saturday, February 5, 2022 in the large sanctuary at Highland Baptist Church in Waco, with Rev. John Durham officiating.  A Visitation with the family will be from 1-2 pm prior to the service.  There will be room to social distance for your safety, and the services will be live streamed on the Grace Gardens website for David.

David was born on Leap Year Day, February 29, 1952 to Curtis and Joyce (Childers) Barclay in Hereford, Texas.  David grew up in Coleman, Texas and graduated high school in 1970.  He attended the University of Texas in Austin.  David entered Civil Service as a Fireman, at Fire Station 1 in Austin, and on his days off built custom homes.  After a few years in the fire department, he transitioned into a full time custom home builder.  He retired after 20 years from Brazos Masonry, serving various roles from Vice President to project manager.

David was a husband, brother, father, grandfather, friend, and an all around great guy.  He was also a fan of the Texas Longhorns, fireman, custom home builder (he could build or fix anything), baseball player and coach, rugby player, and basketball player.  David loved people, he loved to cook for people and was known as a chef, and he also loved to serve people, as a deacon at Highland Baptist Church.  Of all the many amazing things he was, most importantly, David was a Christian.

David had many interests, he loved to travel and when he did, he enjoyed the architecture.  He enjoyed time on his farm and with his family.

He was greeted in Heaven by his youngest daughter, Jennifer Marie Barclay Bost; his parents, Curtis and Joyce; step father, Tommy Kelley; and grandparents, Raymon and Earlyne Childers.

Left to cherish his memories are his beloved wife, Victoria; daughter Cami Wilson and husband Jeff with their five sons, Parker, Jared, Luke, Brayden, and Cooper; son in law, Josh Bost and his and Jennifer’s children, Tyler Tierce, Landon Sykora, Blakely Bost, and Fallyn Bost; son, Neil Vickers; siblings, Larry Barclay, Patty Stepp, Steven Kelley; and numerous other family members.

David and others were instrumental in establishing the Axtell Booster Club when his daughter, Jennifer, was in High School. In Lieu of flowers, the family suggests Axtell FFA Booster Club Scholarship Fund, payable to Axtell Booster Club, PO BOX 55 Axtell, 76624.
