David Troy Owens was born in Boulder City, Nevada, on March 13, 1967, to David LaGene and Hazel Kaye Owens. They moved to Arizona when David was 2.5 years old. He grew up in Mesa and attended Mountain View High School. He had a passion for basketball and guns, which he passed on to his children.
David married his wife, Tatum Ann Howey, on May 29,1997, and together they blended their three children and went on to have four more children of their own. David spent his life working to build his business and taking care of his family.
He took great pride in raising his seven children with his wife, Tatum, who he adored. His favorite past times included watching his kids compete in sports, taking his guns shooting, and spoiling Tatum. He also enjoyed spending time with his two grandchildren.
David was larger than life and lit up every room he walked into. He was always happy and the hardest worker. He knew how to fix everyone’s problems and was always the “go to”. David showed his love for those in his life through his actions. He made sure everyone was taken care of and never went without.
David was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served his mission in Hong Kong. He was still very fluent in Cantonese and loved any opportunity to speak it.
He passed away on Thursday, January 14, 2021, due to undiagnosed leukemia. He fought hard and strong to the very end. His unexpected passing will leave a hole in the hearts of all who knew him, but most especially his sweet wife and children.

and his mother, Hazel Kaye Owens, and his sister, Stephanie Cloward.
