David was a close friend from grade school, St. Leander’s, PCH in high school . We played ball together, football, baseball and some basketball on teams at these schools, or In summer Programs.I have been absent from Pueblo for over forty years. I was saddened by his parting, more so for not seeing him. My sympathies to his family and friends. I am missing Potts.
