    David Carl Frederick, 68, of Ocean Isle Beach passed away suddenly May 14, 2017 at his home. He was born in Gastonia, NC, the son of the late Carl Pearson Frederick and Bonnie Campbell Frederick. He graduated from Frank L. Ashley High School and attended Western Carolina University and Gaston College.

We will remember David’s gift of conversation with anyone and everyone, and his kindness and generosity will never be forgotten.  His legacy will be his deep love of God, family, friends and country.
