David P. Mouse was born on March 12, 1959, in Tahlequah, the son of Robert and Nancy (Walker) Mouse Sr. He attended school at Sequoyah and spent his spare moments chasing 10 brothers and sisters around.

David worked as a custodial technician at Sequoyah School and was one of their biggest fans. He listened to every sporting event on the radio that featured his beloved Sequoyah athletes.

Whenever he wasn’t working, he loved to work on vehicles of all types. He was an avid University of Oklahoma football fan and watched the Sooners every chance he got.

He had a witty sense of humor and loved to tease whenever he got the chance. He was kind, caring, and always willing to lend the helping hand or support when you needed a friend.

A Baptist by faith, David attended Johnson Prairie Baptist Church in Moody.

The Lord called David home from his labors on Nov. 15, 2013 at his home in Tahlequah. David was 54 years old. He leaves many family and friends that will feel the loss of his smile and laughter.

David is preceded in death by his grandparents, his mother and father, and two brothers, Cliff and Jody.

Those left to cherish his memory include four brothers and four sisters, Robert Mouse Jr. and wife Gladys of Peggs, Jackie Mouse of Tahlequah, Michael Mouse of Briggs, Marvin Mouse of Tahlequah, Cora Vann of Woodall, Nora Weaver and David of Tahlequah, Dora Vance and husband Ernest of Tahlequah, and Lucy Overacker and Greg of Tahlequah.

He leaves a special friend, Beverly Hale of Tahlequah, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and a host of friends and loved ones.
