I grew up with David on Parsons Road in Camillus, NY. I have many fond memories of David - from running around East Hill playground to running around Grateful Dead shows. He was always upbeat, mischievous and adventureous, but I'll remember him most as a loyal friend. My condolences to his family, and friends in the Lone Star State.
