David C. Thannhausen

David Thannhousen, 64, of Billings, passed away suddenly at home on January 3, 2020.

He was born in Chicago, Illinois on January 7, 1955 to Charles and Abby Ruth Thannhausen. He spent his early childhood in Chicago and then was a long time resident of Oklahoma City, OK. David was the director of public relations for Dynamark Security Centers while in Oklahoma City at the Oklahoma State Fair, where 4211 children got fingerprinted . This all happened in the first six days of the fair, under rainy conditions. David was one of the original founders of the Maryland-based security company footing the bill for ink and other supplies to complete this task.

David spent years doing many jobs.  Over the last few years he spent time working with his partner, Mitchell Lee.

David loved holidays and celebrated them with enthusiasm.

He was a die-hard Cubs fan, and also an Oklahoma State Cowboys fan.  His favorite sayings were “Wagon Hoe”  “Go Pokes,” and “Orange Power.” When I say “Orange” you say “Power.”  ORANGE!

Preceding David in death were his parents and brother, Charles Thannhausen, and brother-in-law, Dick Allshouse.

David is survived by his partner, Mitchell Lee. Sister Dorothy “Dody” Allshouse; nieces Joanna Thannhausen, Jamie Hall (Ken), nephew Rick Allshouse (Stephanie); great-nieces Ella, Madeline, Grace, Alexandra, and Natalie. Best friend Joe Piccin.

He will be deeply missed by all.

Cremation has taken place. No services are planned.
