David Stich


MT. VERNON — — David Lee Stich, 63, of Mt. Vernon, died at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012, at his home in Mt. Vernon.

He is survived by brother, Dean Montague and wife Carolyn of Calvert City, Ky.; sister, Jeanne Stich and husband John Scrivner of Mt. Vernon; nieces and nephews, Brad Montague, Jennifer Montague, Heather Jones and husband Steve, Lee Summers and wife Becky and Daniel Stich; and great-nieces and great-nephews, Ethan Jones, Mackenzie Jones, Cade Summers, Adalyn Summers and Brant Summers.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Graveside memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at East Salem Cemetery in Jefferson County with the Rev. Melvin “Buck” Larson officiating. Interment will at East Salem Cemetery in Jefferson County.
