David Kevin Kovacevich, 62, of Breckenridge, passed away on Wednesday, September 6, 2023.

He married Donna Wesley Kovacevich on March 8, 1996. Loved by many, she is sharing her grief with their children, Michael and Wende Boyd of Justin, Kelly and Daniel Cruz of Fort Worth, Alesha Kovacevich of Weatherford, and Kevin and Stephanie Kovacevich of Cartersville, Georgia; their grandsons, Price and Cooper Boyd, Caylon and Brock Kovacevich, and Landon Kovacevich; brothers, Billy Sherill and Randy Sherill; sister, Tanya King; extended family, Dave and Faye Wesley, and Terry, Culle, Camden and Centre Parks, as well as many friends throughout the community. He was preceded in death by grandparents, Betty and Lonny Blassingame; parents, Helen Shiver and Blago Kovacevich; and sisters, Lonnetta Portwood and Sunny Kessler.

Born in Galveston, David was raised by his grandparents after his mother’s passing. He served as a police officer in Hudson Oaks and Breckenridge before joining Lockheed Martin, where he enjoyed a long career. David spent his free time making others laugh, helping where he saw the need, working on old cars, spending time with his grandsons, and getting into trouble with his father-in-law, Dave. David and Donna spent many hours taking care of neighborhood animals and their own fur babies. His wish was to support their favorite shelter to help continue their work.

A ceremony celebrating David’s life will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 13, 2023, at the Necessity Cemetery in Necessity, Texas. The family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in David’s memory to the Stephens County Humane Society. Condolences can be made online at
