He was born in Fort Worth, TX on December 4, 1958. He traveled the world with the Texas Boys Choir, and even sang for the Pope.

In the forty-two years of their marriage, they enjoyed raising their three daughters, working on cars and taking road trips through the mountains. He was there for every game or activity coaching or encouraging his kids and grandkids. David gave bear hugs and smiles to each person in his life and when he hugged you, you knew he meant it. He was so proud of his family. David had passion and knowledge for cars and was an Automotive Inspector.

Dear cousin Brenda and girls,
I met David only once when your dad went to be with The Lord. David was such a loving dad and husband and welcomed mom and I. He did all he could do to help us while we were there. I know your dad and mom, and maybe my mom were there to welcome him into their arms too. You , your girls and their families are continually in my thoughts and prayers. I love all of you.

Dear Brenda,

My heart broke for you and the girls when I heard of David’s passing. David’s parents, Jim and Doris were close friends of my parents before any of us kids were born. My dad kept a knife in his desk drawer Jim had made and had given him so many years ago. David’s brother, John would babysit me and my sisters when we were little. It was always so thrilling when I ran into you and David over the years. It must be comforting to know David is in Heaven and we will see him again. You, Candice, Jonna, Dan and the children are in my prayers for strength and comfort.

With Love,
Stephanie Duncan Gross

Brenda, My eyes are filled with tears as I write this! I've known David since we were 5 years old. He lived across the street on Onyx Dr. in NRH. We played outside EVERYDAY of our childhood life. I loved him and his family so much! I'm still in shock he's gone especially due to Covid! I know you both were so in love because David was so happy. Im so thankful me and him got to talk quite a bit at our 40th HS reunion. He was a wonderful person to be around and I wouldn't trade our childhood days for nothing. My condolences to you and your family..this was such a great loss and I'm so sorry Brenda..Take care of yourself! I pray you have Peace in your heart.. Love, Donna Reed

I am still in shock. I cannot imagine a world without Big Dave. If it wasn't for you and him I would never have seen 25! He was the closest thing to a second dad that I could have ever had. Kristeen and I will cherish all the times we had and long before that all the love he showed me when he spoke of you. Bear hugs will be greatly missed but his heartfelt laugh can never be replaced. We grieve with you but know that Jesus will carry you through this time. Please let us know how we can help.

What a profound loss for you and your family. I am praying that you might find peace and healing as you grieve for David. Although David and I were only acquaintances, I felt like I knew him from all the lovely family stories and memories you shared with me over the years. He was a good, kind man, that will be sorely missed by everyone whose life he touched.

Much love,
