I'm so sorry to learn of David's death. He was always a very positive man with a sense of humor. He used to say you're out with the old dad tonight. I'm sure you gave him many years of fun and laughs. Susan Shemerdiak Kelly

David was a long time friend. I always enjoyed talking politics with him as he always followed campaigns and understood how government was a melting pot of conflicting ideas. He will be missed.
