This is how I will always remember Uncle David. Rocking me in the rocking chair when my mom went to work,making homaded icecream, BBQ hamburgers every saturday, taking us and the neighborhood kids for a motor cycle ride around the block, putting a bottle of petobismol on the table when it was the first time I made fried chicken & cook. " That's Uncle David." He bought me a little kick-kack skunk. He said that I was always his little stinker. I still have it. I can write a book. He's my uncle by blood, but was more of a dad I didn't have. I love him dearly. Uncle David, has a new home and one I will be able to see his new home. It's a beautiful Heavenly home with Jesus. Love Janet Dunnam

David was one of the kindest person I've known. He was a great husband, a wonderful brother, the best father figure. I can only thank God for allowing me to spend time with him. It had been a great honor Dave. The Anaya family will always remember you. We love you!

David will be forever remember for his strong character and a set of moral and ethic principles which followed him all throughout a fulfilling, exciting and rewarding life. Most of all, Dave will be remembered forever for a capacity to love second to none, and a compassion that very few people has nowadays. I will miss him with all my heart, and I will remember and love and cherish every moment and every word, for each one of them hold a treasure which cannot be measured. I love you Dave, you are in a better place and we will honor your memory, here on Earth!
