David Stottlemyer, 59, died Tuesday, May 30, 2013, at his home in Kooskia. David was born October 24, 1953, in Corona, CA to Harvey and Carol (Borg) Stottlemyer.

David grew up in the Riverside, CA area and loved music, camping, reading, and gardening, and was active in his local Pathfinders.

He attended school and graduated from La Sierra Academy. David went on to receive his B.S. in Agriculture and Master's in Biology from Loma Linda University. His passion for gardening showed in school and work.

Following college, he had an opportunity to work on the farm and later teach agriculture at La Sierra University. In 1980, while working at the La Sierra campus farm, he met his future wife, Cheryl, and they married in March of 1983.

In 1985 they settled in Riverside. David worked at UCR in the avocado-breeding program and became a master of avocado knowledge. After 20 years in their Riverside home, David and Cheryl decided to move to Kooskia and build their dream of a small family farm business that they named Summer Hill Farm.

He taught gardening seminars around the country and was known to be a very spiritual and wise man with a keen sense of humor.
