David Christian Abernathy

David Christian Abernathy, age 15, of Bessemer City took his final lap of his journey to his heavenly home celebrating his birthday on Wednesday, October 25, 2023, at Levine’s Children’s Hospital. He was born on October 25, 2008, to David Shawn Abernathy and the late Heather Nichole Messer Abernathy.

David was always full speed ahead, full of energy and never met a stranger. He was a huge fan of racing and loved Hendrick’s Nascar race team. David was always smiling and a ladies’ man. You would always hear him say, “Are you from Tennessee, because you are the only ten, I see.” He will truly be missed but his memories and smile will forever be in our hearts. Along with his mother, he is preceded in death by his grandfather David Neil Abernathy.

Those left to cherish his memory, along with his father include his sister Madison Justice; grandmothers Sandra Abernathy and Melissa Hardy; grandparents Randy Messer (Wanda); aunts Tangela Chupp, Holly Temple (Daniel), Hanna Messer (Diane), Haley Flowers (Casey), Samantha Temple, Laila Messer; great uncles Berry Hardy (Becky) and Blair Lackey, great aunt Julie Norton (Johnny); special cousin Emma Chupp; along with a number of other cousins and many other friends and family who loved him dearly. David had two very special teachers Ms. Wyant and Sherman Norton. And his dog Connor.

To celebrate David’s life, a visitation will be from 1:00 pm to 2:45 pm on Saturday, November 4, 2023, at Sisk-Butler Funeral Home. The funeral service will follow in the chapel at 3:00 pm with Pastor Johnny Norton officiating. Burial will follow at Bessemer City Memorial Cemetery.
