Uncle David bought me a oujia board for Christmas when I was ten. Coolest gift ever. He and his brother, my father, were very close and talked almost daily until my father passed in 2001.
He was very smart and knew everything about history, especially the Civil War. He loved beagles and would train them to hunt. He and dad both hated family swim days at the Tinker AF Base pool because the water was absolutely freezing all the time, even in the middle of a 100 degree summer.
David and my dad loved to tease their father about anything and everything. “Warren Sherman!” Paw Paw gave back as good as he got.
There was love there. Real love.
We all figured he was a confirmed bachelor until Stephanie came into his life. She changed him for the better and I am glad that he found someone so kind, compassionate and smart to share his life with.
I am so sorry to hear that he has left us. Rest In Peace, Uncle David. “Tacos del gatos” and “tuna fish sandwiches” are on dad.
