Please share a memory of David to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
David Donovan Braun, age 36, passed away on December 12, 2022, at Duke University Hospital. He suffered and painfully lost a long battle with cirrhosis, the result of alcohol addiction. David a.k.a. Stick, leaves behind six children, Maci Marie Hix (of Chavis Hix), Sophia Rose Braun, Tayla Lee Ivy and Destinee Noelle Collins (of Mandee Marlowe Ball), Rock Albert Braun and Jude Asher Jones, both with his fiancé of 7yrs Lauren Lemons. He is also survived by his Brother, Richard Albert Braun. Sister, Winona Rose Braun. Brother, Randall Wyatt Braun and two Nephews, Obie and Zion. After being born in Cherokee, he lived a few years as a toddler in Las Vegas. He then returned to Cherokee with his Mother and spent his summers in Las Vegas with his Father. At only 9 years old, David suffered the devastating loss of his Mother Annette Marie and Father Richard Albert Braun. This led to him being raised by his sister, as her son and Randy's big brother. David was a caring and attentive Father. Although Sophia lives in SC, she came to visit regularly and he also made the trip to see her there. He watched over all three girls from afar and he adopted young Jude as his own. A private setting up was held on December 19, 2022.
