Later he gained employment at Alcoa Warrick Operations where he worked for 39 years, recently retiring in July of 2015. David was a faithful member of AA since 1990 where after starting his own sobriety went on to be an avid sponsor of others and serving the AA community. He loved sports and loved his family. David would do anything for anybody. He was a great father, grandfather, brother and friend. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him. He leaves behind 5 children: Antonio Hildreth, Hugh Hildreth, Bridgett Thomas (Darnell), David Hildreth, Jr. Damara Sandefur (Billy) all of Evansville; one sister: Bertha Garner of Cedar Rapids, Iowa and 3 brothers: Charles Hildreth, Jr. (Laura), Hugh Hildreth both of Evansville, John Hildreth of Rock Island, IL; a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews; and special friend and companion, Angie Johnson. A scripture which brought David great comfort was 2 Timothy 4:6-8 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
