David Phillip Dearman

David Phillip Dearman, age 66 and lifetime area resident, died Sunday, March 24, 2019.  He was born October 7, 1952 in Springdale to Kenneth and Opal Louise (Ford) Dearman.

David, even as a child, dreamed of becoming a police officer.  He worked his way through the ranks of the Rogers Police Department from 1974-1997 retiring as a corporal.  To stay active he then served as a sergeant with Benton County Sheriff’s Department’s deputy reserves.  In his earlier life he enjoyed hunting and fishing.  Above all, David loved being “G-Pa” to his granddaughter, Olivia.

As David’s health declined, and especially following the death of his wife, Brenda, in 2017, he longed to “go Home” to be reunited with her and his Savior.

He is survived by one daughter, Kacee Scott and husband Jason, and their daughter, Olivia, of Springdale.  Besides his wife and parents, David is also preceded in death by a brother, Wayne Dearman, and step-father, Stillman Garvin.

A funeral was held Tuesday, March 26, at Phillips Chapel Free Will Baptist Church with interment at Silent Grove Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to Phillips Chapel Free Will Baptist Church Building Fund or First Responders Children’s Foundation.

David was always smiling and had an air of calm about him. I remember finding him out in an open field, he had been involved in a pursuit and had the suspect vehicle stopped. He was calm as a cucumber and said to me, “Too much traffic on the radio, so I’ll just wait my turn.” Love this guy! So much character and integrity.

Growing up in the country outside of Lowell, David was my one friend and cousin my age. We played and searched the woods and creeks close to us. We rode horses together and hunted together. I believe my childhood would have been so much less without him as my friend.

David always had my back when serving warrants that I knew would be a problem. Remember him from having fun on the job, especially when he stopped me for speeding one night. I was driving the prisoner van ””’
