Dignity, David possessed that aura.
More than once he advised me on a good wine always punctuated by his dry sense of humor. Kenna, my condolences to you. Just remember all the wonderful memories you two shared through all these years.

I am so very sorry for your loss. David always seemed like a happy soul. May your sorrow be overshadowed with the wonderful memories and love the two of you have shared.
My deepest sympathy,

David "Mr Fox" as I would call him, has been a friend of mine since 1976. We developed a very good frienship. Spent many great times camping, fishing and exploring many remote places in Arizona and Colorado. Base camp in Colorado was at Preist Gulch on the banks of the Dolores River. David was our cook and boy did ever cook up some great meals. As the years passed we grew away from our exploring trips as other things became more important. Not to mention our age ha ha!! I miss him and will always think of him when I have a glass of red wine or a fishing rod in my hand. Rest well my friend. Terry M cCutcheon
