David Prim

David Prim, 78, of Gadsen, Ala., a Southern Pines native, passed peacefully Saturday, July 20, 2019.

He was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army, serving for 26 years and retiring as a full colonel. He lived a life of service and purpose, dedicated to his family, his country and his faith. He touched the lives of many, and all were better for knowing his grace, generosity, compassion and his unmatched sense of humor.

He is survived by his wife, Joan; and his two sons, Bryan and Travis.
