David was born on August 2, 1941, in Bayou La Batre, Alabama, to the late Dayton and Hazel Vesper. He bravely served in the United States Marines 20 years which included 2 tours in Vietnam.

The Lord was his solid foundation, and he happily dedicated his life to Word of God and ministry. He was a faithful member of Soundview Original Free Will Baptist Church and blessed numerous families during his time serving as interim pastor at Otway Original Free Will Baptist Church. He was an active member of the Original Free Will Baptist Eastern Conference and served as the Moderator of Carteret County Union of the Original Free Will Baptist over 13 years ago.

Rev. Vesper dedicated his life to spreading the Word of God. No matter the challenges that faced him, he always put God first. He will be remembered as a loving husband of 51 years and supportive father.

He is survived by his loving wife, Roxie W. Vesper; sons, Dayton A. Vesper of New Bern, Joshua D. Vesper of Newport and Jason P. Vesper of Newport; and sister, Vera Bosarge of Coden, AL.

In addition to his parents, David was preceded in death by his sisters, Juanita McRoy and Diane Halbrook; and brothers, O.J. “Bugs” Vesper, Oliver T. “Mose” Vesper, and Daniel “Danny” Vesper.
