David Earl Self
October 23, 1945-February 14, 2018
Dave Self passed away unexpectedly on the morning of February 14, 2018 in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. He was 72. He was born in Vallejo, CA. and raised in Murfreesboro, TN. He graduated from Central High School in 1963 as a National Merit Scholar. He was educated at Middle Tennessee State University graduating in 1967 with Honors in both Engineering and English. He valued education and was proud that all his daughters received advanced degrees in their fields.
He served his country in the Vietnam war on the front lines 1968-1970 acquiring an Air medal, a Purple heart and a Bronze star. It was an arduous time of his life that he said he took step-by-step everyday. He worked many years with Consolidated Freightways as a senior manager, and later at APX trucking before working at Forward Air prior to his retirement. His peers respected him for his attention to schedules, and details and his knack for making any system he encountered more efficient.
He was an avid history scholar and enjoyed visiting museums while travelling across the south. He was a voracious reader and happily adapted to using a kindle. He also learned to text and communicated often with his family. He loved cars, mechanics, and tinkering in general. He spent many years rebuilding an Army jeep from the ground up. He was a fan of do it yourself projects, building a garage and laying a new wood floor by himself in his home.
A life-long music lover, he played the saxophone in the marching band at President John F. Kennedy’s inauguration in 1961. He had a beautiful singing voice and a diverse love of music from Ray Charles, The Beatles and Paul Simon, to recently the Tedeschi Trucks Band.
Dave also had a tremendous gift for storytelling and was reliably witty and entertaining, always delivering a punch line with perfect timing. You could hear his laugh from across the room. Charming, observant, inquisitive, witty and entertaining; he was often the center of any gathering.
He was exceptionally healthy and full of energy up to the moment he passed away. He never missed a day walking his beloved dogs. He had a soft spot for all animals and inherited his mother’s green thumb producing yummy tomatoes and okra in his summer garden.
His biggest love in life was his family. He was devoted to his wife of 29 years, Mary Frances Self. He is survived by his wife, his daughters, Melissa (Nigel) Sanders-Self, Julie Benjamin, and Mary (Jason) Organ, his stepchildren, Rhonda Parman and Jeffrey Jennings, and his six grandchildren, Dylan Sanders-Self, Luke Sanders-Self, Hannah Benjamin, Emma Benjamin, Olivia Benjamin, and Pearl Organ.
Funeral services will be conducted 2 p.m. Thursday, February 22, 2018 at Bond Memorial Chapel with Ronald Stroupe officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to service time Thursday at Bond Memorial Chapel, N. Mt. Juliet Road and Weston Drive, Mt. Juliet, TN.
