David Martin Caywood

David Martin Caywood, 49, passed away due to complications from a heart attack. David was a native of Lexington, KY, and graduated from Lafayette High School in 1990. He was an exceptional athlete in his youth and an avid sportsman. He loved Kentucky Wildcat basketball and football and his beloved Cincinnati Reds and Bengals. He was raised in the Catholic Church and attended Mary Queen of the Holy Rosary. David was employed by Caywood Publications for 25 years. David had an outgoing personality and never met a stranger. He always had a way to make us laugh.

 

David was also an organ donor. It is beautiful to know that David will not only live in our memories but also by the gift of life he will impart to others. Through his death, new life will begin. He will be truly missed by all of his friends and family.

 

David was preceded in death by his father, Joseph B. Caywood. He is survived by his mother Ruth Martin Caywood, brother Joseph John Caywood, sister Mary Elizabeth (Kenneth) Hamlett, his four children Andrew Martin Caywood, Sarah Hammond Caywood, Tricia Dawn Akers and Brelee Shae Smith, as well as a granddaughter, Josephine Caywood. 

 

A private service for family only will be held at Milward’s Funeral Home on Southland Dr., February 25, 2021. A private burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery. Pallbearers are Joseph Hamlett, Joshua Hamlett, John Caywood and Johnny Callebs.

 

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations in David’s name to the Catholic Action Center of Lexington, 1055 Industry Dr., Lexington KY 40505.
