Can't say enough about David. Every time I came home I would pay a visit. I remember all the parties in the basement after he built the bar. Remember when we built Tim Rhodes shed. Remember pouring the concrete driveway at Rick Rinehardt's. Helped at alot of other job sites. Remember when he had the Honda 350 and he chopped it. Too many things to mention but truly one of my best friends ever. I will truly miss him. Rest in peace David.
