David Pellman, 61, of Indian Land, SC, passed away peacefully at home on December 14th.

They relocated to the Charlotte area and David took a sales engineering position with Component Sourcing International. 
David was always an active member of his church and was involved in Boy Scouts for many years. He enjoyed hiking, camping, riding his Harley, and a nice cold beer. He was always happy to lend a hand. An affable guy, he made friends easily, forging many life-long friendships.
There are many who will miss him and his giant “Dave” hugs.
He was preceded in death by his mother and a brother, Robert.  Surviving him are his wife and their children, Garrett (Asheville) and Noah (home);  his father, brothers Joseph, Thomas, James, Steven, Tim (Rochester), Mark (Fort Collins,CO) and sister Anne Turberg (Rochester).
