David James Chatlin

David James Chatlin, 53, passed away on February 23, 2020, in Rock Springs, Wyoming. He was born on August 22, 1966, in Ogden, Utah, to James W. Chatlin and Judith Lewis McNally. Dave was raised in North Ogden and graduated from Weber High School. He was previously married to Denise Cordova and had two children.

Dave loved fishing, golfing, camping and the outdoors. We will miss his generous spirit and his love for his family.

David is survived by his parents, James W. Chatlin and Judith L. McNally; his children, Austin J. Chatlin (Katrina) and Chloe Chatlin-Dryman (Zac); grandson Niko; granddaughter Delia Marie; and sister Holly C. Lake (Brian).

While Dave struggled with mental illness during his later years, family and friends will remember his positive impact for a lifetime. Several times through the years, Dave took the brave step of asking for help. We encourage anyone who is struggling with mental illness to know that help is available, despite how difficult it might be to ask. 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in David’s memory to the Huntsman Mental Health Institute.

Services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 29, 2020, at Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 36th St., Ogden, UT 84403.

Interment at Leavitt’s Aultorest Memorial Park.

Condolences may be shared with the family at www.leavittsmortuary.com.

I an so truly sorry to hear about David's passing! He made my life better when it's hard for so many!
We "went together" the summer between 9th and 10tj grade. David was ALWAYS a perfect gentleman which made it hard for others to live up to his standards. He DID have one rule..... we had to listen to at least 2 Ted Nigent songs!:)
My husband also graduated from Weber High. He really liked Dave and asked me to send his condolence s. His name is John Varney but everyone called him Jack.
I feel terrible to just hear about this tonight. We need to hold those who touched out lives closer!!

I was a classmate of Dave's he was such a fun person always smiling and joking with a few of us girls. He made it easy to look forward to going to school a good friendship developed but after graduation lost touch as most of us do. I'll remember him for his smile and the good spirited guy he was. Rip. Dave never to be forgotten. Rest now my friend you are free from all pain. Much love to your family they are in my thoughts and prayers!

Jim, Judy and Holly, I'm so sorry about Dave. Over the past couple of days the memories of growing up with Dave have flooded my mind. What a wonderful friend he was to so many of us in our little neighborhood. It was great that we were able to reconnect a couple of years ago at David E's mother's funeral. Our thoughts and prayers are with you right now and I pray a peace will be with you all.

So sorry to have gotten this news today. I have so many memories of growing up with David. Running football plays in the backyard, baseball and football games and just hanging out together. Just loved him. I was so glad that we had reconnected a few years ago and that he was able to be a pall bearer at mom's funeral. I wish you all the peace and love I can.

Great guy, knew him for years, golfed with him, shared a few beers and laughed. Sorry to see him go.
