What a sweet soul gone too soon! David was the kind of person you couldn’t help but like. Whether he was cracking a joke, planning his next great adventure or trying to win you over with his sweet innocent and mischievous smile or beautiful blue eyes, he was just David and you just liked him because of it. A big kid in a grown mans body and always up to something. You will truly be missed and thought of. Love and prayers for your family and friends.

Friendship 1988 - present
We worked, fished, hunted and most of all laughed. Our friendship grew from fun into one of respect for one another. For 30 years we laughed and counseled, debated and sometimes argued but above it all we remained friends. You will be missed my friend, my brother.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss! We were friends in Jr. High through High School, but lost touch. It is very saddening to hear of your passing. Rest in peace.

David was one of my first friends in 7th grade at Smithfield when I moved to NRH. He was one of the funniest people I have ever met. Everytime we talked he would remind me of the story where a guy had his wallet fall into the toilet. He would laugh hysterically and get me laughing and we all know how infectious it was. You will be missed brother. I wish all of his friends and family well in this time of grief.

I remember me and David went to his house when he lived with JD. It was freezing cold outside so when he got out of the truck I turned both mine and his air as hot as I could. When he came outside, I put the air temperature back to its original setting. David opened the door and was like “Jesus Christ Savannah it’s a sauna in here” and I remember laughing so much. He just had such an amazing personality and could light up a room. I’ll forever miss being able to hang out with him and laugh from his little jokes. He just had a really good unique sense of humor and I’ll miss him for the rest of my life.
