David Nelson Kilbourn, Sr.

David “Dave” Nelson Kilbourn, Sr., 68, gained his heavenly wings on Monday, January 3, 2022, at Annie Penn Hospital.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date with his immediate family.


Dave was born on September 9, 1953, to the late Frank, Sr. and Marceline Kilbourn. He was a great husband, father, and grandfather, who was also kindhearted, strong-willed, hardworking and funny man, who loved animals and children. One of his proudest moments was when he saved a baby girl from drowning after she was thrown off of a bridge in Syracuse, NY. He will be remembered by his wife for his love of riding in the car and his eyes. David was always willing to do anything for anyone in need and he will be dearly missed by all of his family.


In addition to his parents, he was preceded by seventeen brothers and sisters. He is survived by his wife Kitty Kilbourn; children, Donald Smith, Amanda Kilbourn, Clay Kilbourn, David Kilbourn, Jr., Teayona Kilbourn; grandchildren, Lasean Kilbourn, Jacklynne Coles, Da’sean Kilbourn, William Kilbourn with two more on the way; step-grandchildren, Lamar, Laylani, Janiah, Danae, and Joniecia; brothers, John Kilbourn and wife Alice, Frank Kilbourn, Jr.; sisters, Antoinette Kilbourn, Lorraine Suressi and husband George, Jean Fyfe in addition to numerous nieces, nephews and other extended family.
