Becky and Deniese (and Debora),

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. David was such a card. And he was a tough cookie, too. Bless him on his journey home and bless your family as you navigate new waters . Hugs to you all.

I want to express my condolences on the passing of Dave. I worked at the APD for 42 years, 24 with Dave and retired in 2019. He was a great worker and great friend. No one believed he spent so much time at the APD as a non paid volunteer but he was one of the best workers at the PD. He always had a smile on his face and was always willing to help and get involved. We considered him as one of the “guys” and this was a great compliment to him. I hope this photo comes through, I am sitting to his left. As you can see, he was one of the “guys”. Capt. Tam Boatler APD Retired

Mr. Barnett was one of my very favorite clients after 30 years in this tax business. I will miss his sense of humor. He always brightened the day when he came in or called. I always enjoyed our banter over his taxes. He was a delight. I know he will be sorely missed.

You are all in my prayers at this difficult time.
