Mr. David G.S. Giddings
Sunrise: December 23, 1954 | Sundown: December 26, 2013

It is with heavy hearts that the Giddings, Howard, and Fahnbulleh families announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, Cousin, Nephew, and son Mr. David Bai Giddings Sr. affectionately called, Bob David. The cold hands of death snatched him away too soon, but we are comforted by the fact that he is now in a better place, resting with the Lord.

Bob David leaves to mourn his death, his beloved wife, Bendu Sooko Fahnbulleh Giddings, five precious children: Nora Coffie (NY), Betty Giddings(Ohio), David Bai Giddings, Jr., Emmanuel Gayah Giddings, and Davend Sando Yah Giddings.(MN). Two Grandchildren, Noah Awkins and Noriah Gipson; one aunty, Margret Diggs Giddings (Moses). Six sisters, Korvah Miller (Baihnyj), Gladys Scott (Steven), Viola Giddings, Priscilla Giddings, Helena Giddings, Larwo Giddings, who predeceased him, and two brothers: Gbono and Pewee, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and brother and sisters in-law.

His absence from this world means that he is present with the Lord and on that great and glorious day, we shall see him again. May his soul rest in everlasting peace.
