I also became aware of David's passing by way of the Oak Hills Alumni Newsletter. (Class of 72). I remember David and the rest of the Upchurch family growing up in a little Episcopal church in Fernbank/Sayler Park.

I just heard about Mr. Upchurch's passing in the OHHS Alumni news. "Mr. Church" was, by far, my favorite teacher from my Delhi Jr High days. I have great memories from doing stats for him when he coached boys basketball, and as a student in his World History class. I considered him a great friend back then, and am very sad to hear of his passing. My prayers and condolences to his family.

Prayers go out to the Upchurch family. I met him when my son was a student at Newport Middle School. He was always kind and caring. The kids were very fond of him as well as the parents. Rest in Peace

My thoughts and prayers to Delores. A truly great lady and the mother of a man who truly did "make a difference" on his journey through this life.

Mr. Upchurch was one of my favorite teachers at Delhi Jr. High when I took his Ancient History class in 84-85. Peace and comfort to all who will miss him.

Words can't explain what a great teacher and person Mr. Upchurch was. I too was a First bell classmate in his class in 78-79 school year. I will never forget his extra credit questions he gave out on his essay tests. Boy were they hard, but I will never ever in life forget who played the Lone Ranger in film as long as I live....Clayton Moore!! RIP we love ya Mr. Upchurch!!
