I am so sorry to hear of David's passing. Everyone had been holding out hope for his recovery. For years I have enjoyed watching ol' Tiger taking walks with his Grandma Diane . He is such a big teddy bear of a dog. Then the happy reunion when David would pick Tiger up at then end of a work day. Wishing all a happy reunion in the future.

David you were one of my very closest friends in high school. You were never shy and continually brought humor to any situation. You always had my back and I always had yours. I’m sorry that in life we didn’t spend more time together. I will miss you my friend.

I met David while working at Jakes Custom Diesel. He was a great worker and so fun to be around. He used to make me laugh so hard. He talked about his family a lot and the love for animals. Especially his dog Tiger. He would bring Tiger to the shop sometimes. After he’d leave I would find cups of water sitting around the shop on the floor for the dog.
David was a joy to know. I was shocked to hear that he had passed. I’ll miss seeing him around. I’m praying Gods Blessings for his family. Rick
