I have good memories of David especially during the junior high years. He lived in our neighborhood and we had some memorable times together. He was funny, good natured and enjoyed life. I am sorry to hear of his passing...I will miss him. Don Stewart Harris

I knew who David was when we were in school, but when I ran into him at the hotel for the reunion, he didn't know me. That's ok. I was just hit hard today when I read of his passing. Here was a man I hadn't seen much in the 50 years since school, maybe only at other reunions, but now he's gone. Rest In Peace, David, and keep 'em laughing where you are.

Sad News, to be sure. David lived down the street from us during Jr High, and maybe  high school. We used to whistle at a distance, to see who could be the loudest, or just to communicate.Ssorry to hear of his passing. Will look forward to a reunion of so many THS classmates on of these days.

Dave was a big man with a zest for life. One never knew what he was going to do or say next, but it was fun watching him relish the outcome unfolding. Dave, you will be missed.
