I met David back around 1979. Went to school with him and his siblings. Always was very soft spoken, liked to joke, laugh & have fun. A great guy. He was a great friend. Last time we chatted, he talked about how it was being a grandpa and how he was going to spend rest of his days making plans with his wife and family. He loved his wife and family. Estella, please accept my condolences on the passing of your husband. My condolences to Margaret, Kathy, Robert, Rita, Ronnie, Leslie and the rest. David (Sam), may you rest peacefully with the lord.
