W. David Ogle

W. David Ogle, 77, of New Concord, passed away Saturday, December 19, 2020 at Riverside Methodist Hospital, Columbus, from complications of Covid-19.

David was born February 15, 1943 in St. Marys, West Virginia to the late Willis Ogle and Fern (Cross) Ogle.  He grew up in Dexter City and attended Kent State University.

Having lived and worked the majority of his adult life in Cambridge, Mr. Ogle began his career at Ohio Power before finding his love for real estate.  He was the owner of the former Scott-Ogle Realty for 45 years.  More recently, David had worked as a realtor with Leonard & Newland Realty.  He was a member of several real estate organizations: the National Association of Realtors; Ohio Association of Realtors and the Guernsey-Muskingum Valley Association of Realtors.

David enjoyed being a member of the Cambridge Masonic Lodge #66 F. & A.M., the Cambridge Elks and the Cambridge Country Club.  He was in several golf leagues around the area, had often taught Sunday school, and had been elected a Cambridge Township Trustee.  He loved collecting and driving cars and even drove his antique truck in the Cambridge Holiday Parade for several years. Most of all, spending time with his beloved family and friends was David’s favorite past time.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Mark Ogle.

He is survived by his loving wife, Carolee (Ford) Ogle; a daughter, Michelle (Richard) Schultze of West Chester; a son, Matthew Ogle (Desiree Simon) of Lafayette CO; a stepdaughter, Michelle Strakowski of Powell; a stepson, Michael Sandman (Emelyn Lybarger) of Columbus; two brothers, John (Elaine) Ogle of Mason WV and Stephen (Karen) Ogle of Woodsfield; three grandsons, Adam Schultze, Hudson Schultze and Walker Schultze, and three step-grandsons, Thomas (Annmarie) Schultze, Spencer Schultze and Nathan Strakowski as well as several nieces and nephews.

No calling hours will be observed.  A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Cambridge Lions Club or the Cambridge Haven of Hope Domestic Violence Shelter.
