David W Koser

He was born on September 22, 1946, in Shippensburg, a son of the late Guy W. and Bessie (Stine) Koser, Sr. Dave married Nancy L. Clendening on May 14, 1966. She preceded him in death on February 14, 2017.

Earlier in life, Dave worked in the construction field, but for the majority of his working life, he was employed with the Borough of Shippensburg for over thirty years, retiring in 2016.

In his free time Dave liked to buy and sell cars, but his main hobby had to do with horses. He rode them in his younger years, but in his later years, he just simply enjoyed having them around to watch and tend to. He would buy and sell them from time to time and he always liked to have a filly or colt in his stable.
