David and I were good friends in elementary school. He was a great guy with a lot of talent. So sorry to hear he left us so soon. RIP, my friend.

So sad to learn of your loss, Sheila. I've thought of you often since your growing up years on the Old CCC Road. With love, Rusty

Dave was my best friend at West, we had some great times together. I am at. A loss for words. My prayers for the family.

Connie and I had the privilege of working with David back in the 1990s for several years. We were always laughing at David's funny stories and impressed with his talents and skills but above all his kind gentleness. He always lightened everyone's load with his funny takes, low stress outlook and he contributed to solving so many problems with well thought out ideas and answers. David was one of the nicest people we have ever known and we look back on that period in our lives and know that David added so much to that great times we lived through. Thank you David. You were always such a wonderful part of everything.

David is my sweet niece Sheila's husband. I will always remember how David brought laughter to the family gatherings! He was a very smart and talented carpenter , and helped my brother build an awesome deck at his home! May God Bless you and keep you safe and warm in his loving arms, my sweet Sheila! Until we meet again David, May you rest in peace! <3
