I remember David as a little boy. Bob Ann was my Girl Scout leader. Lisa and I grew up together, going to the same college, and being roommates. He was a typical, younger brother! I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers for healing and peace.

Deepest heartfelt sympathies to David's family. It was my pleasure to have worked with David as he transitioned into the role of planner in the Kellogg Ammonia Plant at Advansix. He was a very intelligent person who made great improvements in the way things were done in Kellogg. He leaves a hole that no one can fill here. One thing I knew from my time with David is that he loved his wife and kids and was very proud of their achievements and accomplishments. He will be missed deeply here at Advansix - Hopewell.
