David Michael Bagwell died on 19 December 2020 in Lake Emory Post Acute Care, Pauline, Spartanburg County, South Carolina, at age 75


David Michael Bagwell, 75, of Pauline, SC, passed away on Saturday, December 19, 2020, at Lake Emory Post Acute Care after a long illness.

Born in Spartanburg, SC, on August 17, 1945; son of the late John Olean Stokes and Louise Stokes Bagwell; husband of the late Karen Marie Porter Bagwell.

Educated in Pauline and Roebuck schools; was an easy-going fellow with a colorful personality who never met a stranger; had a quick wit, loved sharing jokes, and could light up a room with his smiles and laughter.

Evident even at an early age, he showed a natural talent for music; when he played, hearts soared, hands clapped and toes tapped. He was accomplished on many different instruments including piano, organ, electric, steel, and string guitars, electronic keyboards, even harmonicas, and music soon became the focus of his life. He easily performed varied music genres both solo and with other musicians. Over time he became known throughout the Piedmont area and nearby states for his unique musical styles. Whenever David signed with a venue in Helen, GA extended periods during Oktoberfest, all his performances would fill to standing room only.

Late in his illness, wherever he was confined, David seized every opportunity to perform for other patients, even when the only instrument available was just an old piano. His greatest desire was to use his talent to entertain others. Music was the passion of David's life and he embraced it with gusto. That is how he will be remembered!

Survived by his loving daughter, Kimberly Oliver; two grandchildren, Brandon and Emily, the apples of his eye; and many dear friends.

Predeceased also by his maternal grandparents, Thomas G. Stokes (1883–1931) and Annie White Stokes (1889–1967).

A private gathering for immediate family and the internment of cremains was held at later date.

Memorials could be made to Greater Spartanburg Ministries Endowment Fund, Spartanburg SC.
