I was saddened to hear of David's passing. i worked with him at Fornes Garage back in 1986-87. He was a good man. He was also very smart. Any time I had a problem or a question he was always willing and able to help me out. He was also very friendly.

Our family has known Mr. David since we were children working in the store. For many years, Mr. David shopped in the store nearly every day. He was always the same--pleasant, friendly, soft-spoken, easy to please. We got to the point that we expected to see him daily, and if we didn't, we missed him. Just as he will be missed now; much sympathy to all of the family.
