    You were the best Dad! You always made time to play games with us, you always were there for not only your children but for anyone who needed you. You taught us about God and faith. You hugged and held us when we were down. You always told us that you loved us and made sure that we felt that love! You had an awesome sense of humor and loved to laugh and have a good time.Thank you for everything! You are in my heart forever. Your daughter ????

    I want to pay my respects to Dave, a man I knew for years. I worked with him at the “Cage Room” and “5-A”. I liked working with him because he was my friend. I hope that he is playing disc golf in the sky because he love the sport. The years that I worked with Dave at 5-A were the best of all the years at Timken. I am sad at the loss of a husband, father and a friend. May GOD bless all the MASON family.

    I am sad to hear about the loss of Dave Mason. I worked with him in the “Cage Room” and “5-A” for many years. I hope that he is playing disc golf in the sky. He loved the sport. He was a good guy to work with. He was my friend. The years at 5-A was the best years at Timken’s. I am sad for Debbie and the MASON FAMILY. He will be missed by all who new him. He was special man.

  8. Sierra Fannin says:

    He was the best pawpaw a girl could ever ask for. I remember a life time of games like cards, sorry and dominoes. I also remember learning about Jesus from the person with the purist heart I’ve ever met. I hope to pass the same memories onto my children and future grandchildren. He loved his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He always told me to encourage my children to reach their fullest no matter what they were doing. I remember him letting us do stuff we normally would not be allowed to just to hear us laugh. Wyatt, Owen and Heavenly (Nevaeh) will always be raised with your memory.

  10. Mason Owens says:

    Happy Birthday PawPaw! It has been two years and some change since you have passed away, and I still think about you and have you in my heart every single day. You were a teacher and spreader of kindness and love for me and you are my number one role model in life. I want to be just as wise, funny, caring, and Jesus-like as you were. You were always about having a good time and being with and caring for your friends and family. I miss you and miss all the games I would play with you like Dominoes, Sorry, Cards, Disc Golf, and so much more. I also miss our talks about Jesus and life in general, but Thankfully I have memories to look back on those times. You have taught me three things. 1. Treat everyone with kindness, even if they don’t deserve it. 2. Always keep a level head, unless you absolutely have to put your foot down. and most importantly, 3. To have as much fun living your life as possible. I always try to implement these three things into my daily life and my personality everyday of my life and I will continue to do so for as long as I live. Well that’s all PawPaw, say Hi to God for me if you happen to see him. Love you Love you Love you!

    Happy Birthday PawPaw! It’s been another two years since I last put a message on here. We still think about you everyday and appreciate you for all of the love and laughs you gave to us. The world has been going completely crazy since you have passed away, but thankfully you are up in heaven not having to worry about it. You probably wouldn’t be worrying about it anyways. Lol I miss you a ton and wish we could play a game of dominoes or disc golf. Which we still play disc golf as often as we get out in your memory, and have made it a tradition to celebrate your life by eating donuts on your birthday and death day. I know that’s probably what you’re doing up in heaven as we speak. Just remember to say “Hi” to God for me if you happen to see him! Love you Love you Love you!
