I specifically remember David from my eighth grade home room class because of the smile he always held that brightened up the room. David was intuitive in so many ways and was a role model for his motivation and personable quality. There’s not a way I can fully apologize for what his family is going through. I’ll be thinking of David as the angel that he is.

We have fond memories of all the fun Nathan had with David, and Braden & Hunter, over the years. David was always a sweetheart and a good friend to Nathan. Once again, our hearts are broken for your dear family, and we're asking God to give you His comfort and strength.

The Walker family is so very sorry for your loss. I remember all the fun we had in Cub Scouts with David. He was such a sweet boy and grew up to be such a handsome young man, gone from this world way too soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I only knew David a little bit thru robotics, but such a wonderful family shouldn't ever have to experience a tragedy like this. Along with Michaela ans Ian I offer my heartfelt condolences.
