David Thomas Shervington, age 61, of Highway 105, Banner Elk, passed away Tuesday, April 30, 2019, at his home.

David was born July 20, 1957 in Manhattan, New York, a son of the late Thomas Henry Shervington and Kathleen Cullinan Shervington. He was a referee of Watauga County Parks & Recreation and a member of Boone United Methodist Church. David was involved in sports dating back his days at Melbourne High School (Florida). At the age of 18, he volunteered with the Melbourne Beach Vol Fire Dept where he also served on the board of directors. While doing that, he completed his two years at Brevard Community College and then moved on to the University of South Florida. From there he moved up to Boone. He enjoyed his life here in the mountains. He worked for Hound Ears and then moved on to work 11 years at ASU. He then took employment at Lee’s McRae for 4 years before returning to ASU. All the while he also did what he enjoyed, officiating sport. Many referred to him as Robo Ref. Most remember him as the person who would do anything for you and ask little in return.

David is survived by two brothers, Michael Shervington and wife Rhonda of Malabar, Florida, and Thomas Shervington and wife Buffie of Tampa, Florida; one niece, Olivia Shervington, and one nephew, Thomas R. Shervington of Tampa, Florida.

He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Thomas and Kathleen Cullinan Shervington.
