Dave B. Gheesling, age 53, of Roswell, Georgia, passed away on November 11, 2020. He was born on June 8, 1967, in Decatur, Georgia, the son to Barry Gheesling and Sheilla Gheesling.
Gheesling graduated from Georgia Tech in 1989 with a bachelor of business administration. He began his career selling industrial equipment before becoming involved in the flooring industry. He worked at Mohawk Industries and Abbey before founding FloorExpo Inc., today known as FEI Group.
He was a man of extraordinary talent. An accomplished public speaker, educator, and an expert marksman, Gheesling made personal fitness a priority, and he was an accomplished author of numerous publications and books. Gheesling was a lover of all things related to space and collecting meteorites was his passion. His collection, Falling Rocks, is one of the largest and most impressive collections in private hands. Dave was an inspirational leader, mentor to many, and loved by all.
Gheesling met his life partner, Kasia Sutton, at a coffee shop, and they shared more than six years of happiness together. Raising a blended family, they enjoyed sharing precious moments and adventures together with family and friends. Family was most important to Gheesling and he considered his friends to be a part of his family. He was an incredible father, son, brother, uncle, partner, and friend. He was a father figure to many, and he will be deeply missed. His life, influence, and legacy will forever remain in the lives of all who knew him, and we will all cherish his memories as we gaze to the heavens.
He is survived by his loving family: partner Kasia Sutton; children Willow, Katy, Maddie, Natalia and Marcus; parents Barry Gheesling and Sheilla Gheesling; brother Brad Gheesling and his wife Kara; niece and nephew Suzanna and Shannon; uncles, Bob Green and his wife Pat, and Clayton Gheesling and his wife Karen, along with a host of friends from all over the globe.
