David Latrone Pimpleton, also known as DP, was born on April 2, 1977, to Vernell Debbie Sue Dorsey (Charles) and the late Donald Garfield Pimpleton, Sr. He was one of six children.

David accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at a very early age and was baptized at the New Galilee Baptist Church. He received his education in the Monroe City Schools system. He was a wonderful father, brother, uncle, and cousin. Above all, his greatest passion was the time he spent with his family.

On December 19, 2020, the angel of silence came to David and sealed his lips. He was preceded in death by his father, Donald Garfield Pimpleton, Sr.

His life and legacy will be remembered by his children, Jamarcus Scott, DeTerricka Anderson, and DayShaNae Anderson, all of Monroe, Louisiana; his mother, Vernell Debbie Sue Dorsey (Charles); siblings, Lakisha Pimpleton, Donald Pimpleton (Kerrella), Kandys Maxwell (Agusta), Tyiska Anderson, and Tiffany Black (Jeremy); a special friend, Servette Anderson; and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, extended family, and loved ones.
