David,

Thanks for being our best photographer (sorry I don’t have any proof of this early 2000s...long before IPhones.....perhaps that’s for the best), best cheesy bread delivery, and in our college years best DD. You were the funniest, friendliest, best little brother I never had, but I’m so glad Amy did and so appreciated her sharing you with me. I know your spirit and legacy will live on in your beautiful daughter Cate who has your endless energy and effortless sense of humor. You are loved, missed, and may you Rest in Peace now ❤️Em

I never had an opportunity to meet David but had the priviledge to work with Brian at OneAmerica. Brian is one of the most caring people I know, which can be a rarity in the corporate world. He was so proud of Catherine and shared many notes she wrote for him or fun stories with our team. I am truly heartbroken to hear of your loss and hope God blesses your entire family
during this time. Will continue to pray for comfort and healing.

Amy when we first brought David home. She loved her little brother and watched over him from day one. David always was my special little man and Amy my special shining star. Love it hem both so much!

I met David through the volleyball community. He and my son Chase competed against each other. I loved watching them play. David always looked happy and care free. His energy and enthusiasm were remarkable. He was a light in the volleyball community that people enjoyed by his presence. My condolences

I had the pleasure of meeting this handsome, energetic young man at the Highlands beach party on Sept. 1st. His darling daughter was playing in the sand nearby. My heart is heavy for the family and their loss. I send love, comfort and sunshine your way. With sympathy, love & friendship,
Fellow Highlander, Suzie Kuddes

David had good influence on our boys. He brought appropriate challenge and good encouragement to them on the volleyball court, and his care for them was evident to us.

Brian, Paula, and Re, we are so sorry for this loss. We pray the the God of all comfort will somehow penetrate the pain and be real for you all right now. We love you guys.

I never met David although I’ve had the privilege to work with Brian who is an amazing human being. Also met his daughter, Amy, and had a chance to see pictures of the family.

May God give this family the strength to deal with this loss.

Brian and family - although I never had the honor of meeting David, I do have the honor of knowing his father and considering him a friend. Brian has been a bit of a beacon for me as I travel into Indy most weeks. I've had the privilege of meeting David's lovely sister Amy, wife Re and adorable daughter Catherine along with his father. The prayers of my family and I are with you. God Bless.
