So sorry to learn of Davis passing. I really liked David! He was a proud American soldier. The brief time I knew him he felt like a son. I will miss him. God Bless

David was our neighbor for some time, he was always fun to be around. We would play cards with him and Kristina some nights and I would babysit their sweet baby girl sometimes. He was a wonderful man and a wonderful Daddy. I know he will be watching over his sweet baby from above. Prayers for everyone 💜

David was always a happy, and fun kid. Growing up together he always knew how to build you up when you were down. Sending love and condolences to all of the family.

David and I grew up together but lost touch after school. What is there to say? He hated math class in 6th grade but he always seemed to do well in band class. He liked riding our friend's horse and bragged about shooting cans with his bb gun. He was strong-headed but respectful to his elders, and was always getting into some kind of shenanigans. Wherever he went he was the life of the party. It's truly saddening to learn of his passing at such a young age. I'm grateful for the time I was able to know him. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
