David Guy Stanger, 66, of Christiansburg passed peacefully from the land of the dying into the land of the living on Thursday, December 24, 2020. He was born on October 23, 1954 to the late Leo Shannon Stanger and Mable Linkous Stanger.

David was a devoted husband and father, but first and foremost he was a farmer with a great love for the land, his cows and his friends. He was also a truck driver for FedEx Freight and dearly loved his customers and his buddies at FedEx. His passion later in life was to spread fertilizer and lime with his Mack truck for his fellow farmers. He will be sorely missed.

He is survived by his wife, Anita Massey Stanger; sons, Matthew N. Stanger, John D. Stanger and wife Samantha, and one daughter Faith E. Stanger; brother and sister-in-law, Glenn and Doris Stanger; sister and brother-in-law Jennifer and Gary Brumfield; granddaughters Skyler, Audrey, Olivia, Abigail, and grandsons Dakotah, Justin, and Tucker, as well as many nieces and nephews.

The family will receive visitors at Horne Funeral Home on Monday, December 28, 2020, from 6-8:00pm. The funeral will be held on Tuesday, December 29, 2020 at 2:00pm at Horne Funeral Home. Interment will be at the Stanger-Sheppard Cemetery, Radford.
