David Lee Batchelor, 69 of Grants, New Mexico, passed away on Dec 16, 2020 after a hard fought battle with COVID-19.

He was born in Alton, IL on February 14, 1951 to his parents, Clarence and Dorothy Batchelor

He has many nieces and nephews, and grand nieces/nephews that loved him dearly.

He is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Andrew Batchelor.

David loved his family and to sing in the choir at his Church as well as singing many years with the Society of Barbershop singers, where he sang lead with the New Mexichords in Albuquerque, NM.

David had retired from the State of Missouri Mental health department after 25 years working with individuals with developmental delays and for 13 years working with the Division of Family Services.

Sad to hear about David. I don't check the website as often as I should. Looking down the list of class mates who have passed is sad. Such memories of childhood and young adults. To all of us that are still here, cherish each day and live it fully. May God bless each and everyone of us. Till me meet again!
