Resided in: Pueblo, Colorado

David Madison Carlock, 70, was born on October 16, 1953, in Pueblo, Colo., and went to be with Lord on February 11, 2024.

David was preceded in death by his grandparents, Cary and Vella Herndon, and Ralph and Mildred Carlock; parents, Norman and Della Carlock; parents-in-law, Dobbie and Dee Stephenson; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Janet; children, Darla Carlock, and Jonathan (Lisa) Carlock; grandchildren, Cole (Lexie), Rick (Isabel), Steven, Breeanna, Evan, and Bryn; great-grandsons, Timmy and Lucas; several step-great-grandchildren; sisters, Rhonda (Lee) Madison, and Trish Blackwell; extended family including Judy Stephenson, Bud Stephenson, Joyce (Jerry) Young, and Doug (Tammy) Stephenson; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A lifetime resident of Pueblo, he graduated from East High School and went on to Midwest Business School. David worked at the family-owned Tastee Freez/Foods, Fountain Sand & Gravel, Santa Fe Railroad, TTC, and Deltek. He was known for his values, strong work ethic, and perseverance determined to solve whatever problem he came across.

David enjoyed playing basketball, the guitar, Dungeons and Dragons, and working on the computer. He loved to travel and was able to visit forty-nine states and three countries. David loved the Beatles, Eric Clapton, Mountain, Billy Sheehan and Stevie Ray Vaughn. His children, grandchildren, and great-grandson, brought him great joy. He remained close to his two sisters enjoying a weekly luncheon with them and his wife. He had friendships lasting over sixty years. David expressed his love with actions often without having to say a single word.

David was a member and pastor of the Community of Christ. He loved his Lord, family, and church family. David had a deep understanding of the Scriptures and lived and followed their guidance. He loved sharing Jesus and his love and belief in Jesus Christ to others who desired to converse with him. If David were to leave words for us today, they would include things like You are loved, think the best possible way or meaning in any given situation, may you be well in body, mind, and spirit, may you know Jesus Christ and find Joy, Hope, Love, and Peace.

David will be missed, yet our memories of him will keep us going, and the faith that we will be with him again in the future.

Memories Timeline


  1. CandleImageI worked with David for many years. He was a great guy with a sly sense of humor. I am amazed that we did not get into more trouble than we did with some of our antics at work.

  2. CandleImageWe are all very sad to hear of David’s passing. I have many fond memories of David and the entire Carlock family. We shared many good times, including holiday family gatherings, as well as time spent around the Tastee Freeze,when I would stay with his family on occasion, during summer breaks. David was a good man,with great conviction for what he believed in.We most recently messaged holiday wishes back and forth, and enjoyed chatting about sports, especially with the Denver Nuggets won their first championship last season. I also have a photo from one of the many football games played on Thanksgiving day at the Carlock grandparents home in LaJunta .It is David, Darla and John playing against myself, my daughter Jaimy, and my oldest son Mike. I will try to get a copy of that to Janet and the kids. Our deepest sympathy to all.David will be sorely missed and always respected.
