David Ligon Armstrong (May 5, 1927 Ontario CA - July 4, 2019 Pomona CA), son of John A. and Ruth Harrison Armstrong

[From Botanica's Roses, p. 677:] Armstrong was active between 1963 and 1972, at Armstrong Nurseries, Ontario, California.

[From his obituary on "Find a Grave":] David was born May 5, 1927 at home in Ontario, California. He was the second son of Awdry and Ruth Armstrong, having an older brother John and later a younger sister Janetha. He grew up in Ontario playing in the orange groves and attending Edison Elementary School. He used to tell the story of making up creative newspapers to sell to the neighbors and at Halloween putting pins in the doorbells. As a boy he helped package plants in containers for his family’s nursery, Armstrong Nursery of Ontario. David was a modest young man, hard working, sensitive and happy, with a love for his grandmother’s bottled picked peaches and adventure books.
