David Scott Freer, 40, of Mountain Home, passed away on Jan. 1, 2013, at a Boise hospital.

A celebration of David's life will be held from 3-5 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 11, at the Elk's Lodge, located at 325 S. Third West St. in Mountain Home . Arrangements are under the direction of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel.

David was born on Nov. 19, 1972, in Mountain Home. David was the youngest of four brothers and learned at an early age how to work hard, play hard and love fiercely. He was everybody's best friend. A true giver at heart.

He graduated from Mountain Home High School in 1991 and continued his education at the University of Idaho, receiving his Bachelor's Degree in Agricultural Economics. He loved farming and was constantly working on innovations and improvements to his fields and crops.

David married Ambre English on Christmas Eve 2001, with her young son, Tanner, as their witness. They had been together since Tanner was just an infant, so Tanner and David were very close. They had three more children, sons Ethan, Russell and Henry. David was never happier than spending time with his boys. He coached their sports teams, volunteered in their classrooms and spent hours with them on the farm teaching them the things he loved. He was an amazing father and husband.

David and Ambre had known each other since grade school and had a very special connection.

David was incredibly proud and happy to be a family man.

David loved his family, his farm and coaching kids above anything. He gave back to our community a hundred-fold over the years and truly enjoyed every moment of his short life.

In lieu of flowers, David would have wanted donations to be made to Elmore County Youth Baseball or any other local volunteer youth program.

David is survived by his wife, Ambre, his sons, Tanner, Ethan, Russell and Henry, his father, Forrest, and his wife, Shirley Freer, of Mountain Home, his mother, Carole, and her husband, Lynn Evenson, of Boise, his brothers Todd and his wife, Autumn Freer ,of Boise, Bryan and his wife, Jeanne Freer, of Boise, Mark and his wife, Cher Freer, of Boise and several nieces, nephews, cousin, aunts and uncles.
