David was a good and honorable man. For many years David did many repair jobs for me in my home. I could always count on him to be thorough and fair. David’s pleasant personality also contributed to his welcomed presence in our home. Rest In Peace David.

Dave was a very close friend of mines, very positive and ambitious at all times, I learned alot from dave, he always talked about good things and life, he wouldn't even entertain, negative conversation, you hooked up my first receptacles in my house, I remember I had to have surgery after we was moving your trailer in the back yard when I stepped in a hole, I remember when you found a fire in the wall at my house in 2014, I remember when we fixed all of those pipes that kept busting at mrs Silvermans, house, I can never forget this good man, man this is a hard one, am gonna really miss you dearly, brother David Durbin 😢😢😢
