Church Pastor Flies Out To Florida To Be With Draper Family

by Stuart Burson

More information on the untimely death of David Draper, a Nacogdoches community leader who drowned Saturday while on a family trip in Destin, Florida.

Justin Beadles, the pastor of Grace Bible Church where the Draper family are members arrived back in Nacogdoches Sunday after flying to Destin to be with the Draper family.

He tells us that Draper and his kids were playing in the ocean trying to get to a sandbar when somehow he got in trouble in the water. Beadle says he doesn't know for sure if it was rip current that Draper became caught in.

Funeral service have not yet been set for Draper, who was president of First Bank and Trust in Nacogdoches and a well respected member of the community.
