David & Corinne Bain

Friendship and love are powerful bonds, as are memories of a friend. Having David as a friend has been an honor and privilege and seeing his welcoming smile always heartwarming. Visiting David and Annalee (and their puppies) was relaxing like you were on a mini vacation, and for us, it was on many occasions. When we moved from TX to TN, David & Annalee welcomed us with open arms. Whether it was touring through the Smokies, a concert or motorcycle parade on Memorial Day in Sevierville, taking in the Christmas lights at Dollywood or just having ribs from Sweet Pea barbecue, it was just comfortable. Simple as it was including furniture shopping in Waynesville, NC, a domino game, a casino visit at Cherokee and the many laughs and rounds of golf, these get togethers cannot be replaced and with fond memories in our hearts, absolutely will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Annalee.

Annalee, there are just no words to tell you how very sorry I am about David. I have thought back in recent days of sitting at your home in Argyle and watching you two interact. It was such a wonderful relationship you shared - all the laughter, the looks...there was so very much love evident. I’m so happy to have known him and i know that he lives on in your heart. Much Love, Pam

Dave.... Lots of good memories when we were young You always had a smile on your face and always were concerned about the family and made it a point to keep in touch. Thanks for being our best man 49 years ago. Remember we were changing a fan belt just hours before the wedding! Thinking of our trips to Dallas and the NASCAR race. It was a great time! Annalee, You are in our thoughts and prayers. Dave's passing has left a hole in our hearts. He will be sadly missed with love.
Rest in peace and we hope you have a good card game going on with the folks.

I met Dave when he got to the Pentagon. Karl was overseas, I was pregnant and Dave would stop by to check on me. He was so caring. Karl returned and they became biker buds. Oh the stories! He was a brother to us and an uncle to our kids. Lots of holidays, vacations, Paul’s games and fun times together that we will cherish. We’ll miss him always. Saw each other through a lot of good/bad times but the happiest time for him was when he met Annalee. So sorry for your loss

David “Uncle Dave” always there with that bearded smile and a big hug. You were such a close friend to my parents you were family. My bother and I were closer to you than our blood uncles. I have so many warm and fun memories of you from birthdays, milestones, vacations, camping, holidays and just days. I will cherish all those memories until we meet again. I love and miss you Uncle Dave.

Thank you David for the many fond memories of our friendship of almost 50 years. I will always treasure the many adventures we enjoyed as we drove our Kawasaki’s with wild abandon. It was your suggestion to always trade bikes for our wild rides. Your suggestion is likely the only reason I’m still in one piece today. Thank you David for your courage, your friendship and love.

We hope you know how much others care.
Because of who Dave was and how he lived
His Love and Memories will be with you always.
Dave is watching over everyone during our earthly stay.
As life shall have it, we will meet him again one day.

One of my favorite memories with Dave was the year he & I went to the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, AZ. We were both Motörhead’s, and had talked about it for years. When we finally went, we were like two kids in a candy store! We were so overwhelmed, and could scarcely take it all in! My brother and best bud is gone, but certainly won’t be forgotten. Rest In Peace, Bro! I’ll see you in heaven one day!

Annalee, you are in my thoughts and prayers and I will be here for whatever you may need. I am so glad you and David chose to move to Tennessee. It was a pleasure to get to know him and play golf. Always fun and always patient with us, no matter how bad we played! I am honored to have known him. Thank you David for your service to our country and for being such a good and kind man , a true Tennessee Gentleman. God's speed my friend...

Unfortunately, I don’t have actual pictures that can be held or posted on a website. However, I’m lucky to have many mental pictures of David. I can close my eyes and see him being...
...Precise. Once upon a time David hung pictures for me. I frequently move pictures due to measuring errors. The ones David hung were never moved.
...Patient. I can still see him trying to pick up a dead fly for Annalee. She only gave him a thumb-size piece of paper towel for this job but he patiently worked with it until he scooped up the fly. Laughing the whole time about her trying to conserve paper towels.
...A Prankster. He enjoyed pulling “made you look” pranks on Annalee. I can still see him laughing a lot about one he pulled at an art fair we all attended.
...A Golf Player. His face would light up when he hit a beautiful drive, a great second shot and putted a birdie. Sometimes all on the same hole! He really smiled then.
...A Puppy Pied Piper. My little dog is a bit clingy but he loved being with David sitting in his chair. Just picture a little dog on David’s lap with a smile on his face (and one on David’s too).

There are more examples I can describe but you probably get the picture. David was a good and kind man. He really meant it when he said “have a nice day”.

He will be missed.
