David was a great Brother and leader in Freemasonry and an outstanding member of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite. He led by example and always was there to support his Brothers. A Mason's Mason, he will be dearly missed.

Oh how I loved being in your class back in the day in the good ol' Delhi Jr. High years. Great memories of you. You were top notch and funny to boot! God bless you and your family Mr. Upchurch.

David was a great teacher and coach. But he was a better friend. We taught side by side for 7 years, spent several summers as GTH Painting, and played lots of softball. I will always hold fond memories of the times we shared. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. May God give you comfort and peace.

Our most favorite teacher EVERRRRR! Year 1978-1979 first bell history class Delhi Jr High. :) Thanks for starting our day with fun learning and cracking up! Still talk about the good memories and the handwriting cramps we would get after taking the never ending essay tests. (multiple choice tests never an option).

Best teacher ever! Mr. Upchurch always made learning fun. He never forgot a student...ran into him over the years and he never hesitated to stop and have a conversation. So sad to hear of his passing. Sending prayers to his family.

Delores and family, so many memories of this great guy. Dave affected the lives of so many through his love of learning, history, athletics, and friendship. Will always remember that warm smile and great laugh. May you all be comforted with the love of family and friends. Dave will surround you with his love and someday be reunited with the family and friends he loved.
