Obituary of Mr. David Richard Briggs


David Richard Briggs, 90, of Millsboro, DE  passed away in the care of Harrison House Nursing and Rehabilitation. He was born on May 8, 1929 and died on May 3, 2020. 


Our Dad loved Mother Nature, his farm, his sawmill and workshop, fishing, music and living life.  Most of all he loved his family and God.


We thank all the staff at Harrison House for being so supportive to his needs during his final days.  His nurses truly are warriors; they bravely went to battle with him every day and every night to fight this horrible enemy: Corona Virus.  He would always say that love is stronger than hate.


His resting place will be with Mom at the Millsboro Cemetery, attended privately by family.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to your Church or Harrison Senior Living, 110 West North Street, Georgetown, DE 19947.  Arrangements provided by Watson Funeral Home, Millsboro, DE.
