Obituary

David Romine, 62, of Halfway, Oregon died on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at the home of his parents in Richland, Oregon. A Memorial Service will be held at Pine Valley Presbyterian Church in Halfway, Oregon at 2 p.m. on October 9, 2021.

David Oliver Romine was born on April 30, 1959 in La Grande, Oregon to David and Ora “Skip” Romine.  David was raised in La Grande, attending grade schools and graduating from La Grande High School in 1979.  David joined the Oregon Army National Guard right out of high school and remained a cook the entire thirteen years that he was enlisted.  He left the military with an honorable discharge.   David married Sheila Neer and together they had two children.  They divorced in 1994.

During David’s life he was a jack of all trades.  He worked for Western Automatic from 1978-82. He then went on to own and operate his own sprinkler fitting business called Blue Mt. Fire Protection from 1982-87.  Dave then worked at Cascade Fire Protection from 1987 to 1994. Currently David was self-employed as a handyman and doing construction, from taking on the small projects of a pump house to putting on an addition to a home which might include foundation, dry wall, painting, flooring and more.  David had a huge heart, always willing to help anyone at any time with anything. 

A favorite pet of David’s was “ol’ Red Dog”.  He loved going into the mountains and mushrooming.  He enjoyed working with wood and yard art, and creating small furniture.  Just before this year’s Labor Day Rodeo he made a two sided bench which found its way from Main Street, from one side of the street to the other and to the Fair Grounds for people to enjoy. 

He was preceded in death by his brother James Romine.

David is survived by his son Craig Romine and his wife Natasha of Union, OR; daughter Sara Sword and her husband Kevin of la Grande, OR;  parents David and Skip Romine of Richland, OR; nephews Tom and Jon Romine; uncles Jerry Romine of Clarkston, WA and Larry Romine of La Grande. OR; aunt Shirley Harrod of Vale, OR.
