I worked with David in the bakery. I looked forward to seeing him everyday. David was such a great friend, a beautiful soul. Always had a kind word and a smile. I was blessed to have had him in my life. I will miss him dearly. I will see you again. Love you

Julie I was so sorry to hear about your son’s passing from my Brother Bill Wilder. Your Mom & Dad were good friends with my folks, Jane & Frank Wilder of Signal Mtn. I was quite a bit older than you but your family was special to ours. Your mom and dad came to visit us in France on one of their trips. I know you are heartbroken beyond words but know that I am praying for your family during these very rough times. My heart is with you,Julie. Linda W Denley

David was a great friend. I love to play guitar and he would always play with me if I wanted to play. I used to live with him at UT and we would play guitar either on our deck or outside the dorm for others to hear. One saturday night, David and I were playing guitar outside our dorms and got the request to play Wagon Wheel multiple times from the same guy. Then he said, "I don't have money, but I can give you this Papa John's coupon." To me, that counts as me and David getting paid to play music.

Another story about David is one night just me and him went to a local concert in a house a little ways away from Cumberland Ave in Knoxville. I was on crutches at the time, but he didn't mind walking with me there. The show was really good and we were right next to the performers because it was in a house. Later on, the house got a noise complaint, and a cop came to tell everyone to quiet down. When the show was over, we proceeded to fake run/crutch from the cops and I remember his signature laugh watching me "crutch away from the cops." He was fun to be around.

I have so many memories of great times with David. It was comfortable to be around him. It was hanging out playing Mario Party; he was the best Monopoly player I have ever seen; or just sitting and watching Kitchen Nightmares. David was a great friend, fun to be around, and liked by everyone around him.
