David Allan Flading, 56, of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina died on May 28, 2022 in a tragic accident while doing what he loved: flying. He was born in McKeesport on October 2, 1965 to Donald P. Flading and Janet E. (Miller) Flading of North Huntingdon. Dave graduated from Norwin High School in 1983 and from Penn State University in 1989. After that, in 1998, Dave decided to pursue his life-long dream of learning to fly, first attending the Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics and later acquiring his multi-engine certification in Myrtle Beach. He was employed by UPS as a preloader/ package handler, by Barnstormers Aerial Advertising as chief pilot, by Pavillion Discount Beverages, and by the House of Blues as a bartender. In good weather, Dave could be found at the controls of his yellow and black plane towing advertising banners along the Myrtle Beach Grand Strand. His plane’s colors were an airborne symbol of his devotion to the Pittsburgh Steelers, a love undimmed by his move south more than 20 years ago. While David loved flying, Pittsburgh sports, and Penn State football, his greatest love of all was for his daughters Lyndie and Mattie, who were the center of his universe. To know Dave was to love him. With his generosity of spirit, his wonderful sense of humor and his infectious smile, he brought so much joy to those fortunate enough to call him family or friend. David is survived by his wife Jeanne Mabry and daughters Lyndie Mabry and Mattie Flading of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; by parents Donald and Janet Flading of North Huntingdon; by siblings Mark (Sherry) Flading of Jupiter, Florida, Pamela (Timothy) Dawson of Irwin and Jill (Bruce) Ingram of North Huntingdon; and by nieces and nephews Garrett Ingram, Jessica Flading, Sean Dawson, Shane Ingram and Kelsey Dawson.
