David D. Senters, age 83, of Xenia, Illinios passed away Tuesday afternoon, August 11, 2020, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Mt. Vernon.
He was born October 11, 1936, in Flora, Illinios, the son of Fredrick Leon and Claris Amelia (Robinson) Senters. He was united in marriage to Sally Tolliver on December 26, 1966, in Louisville, and together they have shared 53 wedding anniversaries.
Dave worked as a carpenter for many years and was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. You could often find him working on mowers and shining up old cars. Among his many skills he also enjoyed playing guitar. Dave was a true artisan. He loved taking scenic drives in the country with Sally looking for wildflowers, spending time fishing with his family, and always looked forward to the annual fishing trip on the Big Wabash River. He cherished spending time with family, whom he always lovingly nicknamed, and his special dogs Molly and Ruby. Dave always made it a point to never say goodbye, but rather “See you in the funnies.”
He survived by his wife: Sally Senters of Xenia; 2 daughters: Lisa Johns of Xenia and Lillith Davis of Flora; 6 grandchildren: Melissa Hagen, Johnny Wayne Smith, Burtis Wenzel, and Trenton, Taylor, and Hannah Johns; 8 great-grandchildren: Austin Davis, Dylan Sucher, Maleah McKinney, Madison Smith, Tristen Smith, and Claiton, Alexis, and Cody Hagen; siblings: Reg Senters, Pat (Ann) Senters, Margie Senters, and Raleigh Senters; a special nephew: Dave Senters; and several other nieces and nephews also survive.
He was preceded in death by his parents; a daughter: Terri Cook; a grandson: Christopher Lee Davis; and siblings: June, Joe, Gene, Fred, Jack, Jess, and Sammy.

Rest in peace Dave , miss you already !
Because we moved to California when I was 22 I didnt get to see Uncle Dave very many times. I think I was 17 the last time I got to hang out with my family in Flora and Decatur. Then I got married young and moved away. But I have very happy and warm feelings about my Uncle Dave. He was always ready with a joke and loved to play pranks on we young nieces and nephews. He was easy to visit with. Very down to earth. I'm sorry I didn't make it back to see my Illinois family. I had been taking care of my mom and also have a major fear of flying. Aunt Margie has kept me up on everyone. I even have a recent picture or two. God bless you Uncle Dave and God bless your wife and family. Say "Hi!" to my dad and the other brothers up there. I know you are wrapped in the arms of our Lord and are surrounded with amazing joy.
So sorry for your loss.prayers for the family
