My deepest sympathies to Ricki and the Rodriguez family.
I've posted a couple of photos that reflect the David that I knew best. David was always happy, loved to party, and had that mischievous grin. He had a great laugh, and I also loved the way he could make that one eyebrow go up.
He will be deeply missed, and always remembered.

My heart goes out to his lovely wife Ricki and his daughters, whom I know, and the rest of the family. He was one of my favorite people, always smiling, cared about everyone. I will always remember the year you and Ricki invited me over for thanksgiving because I had no where else to go. We had a great time and meant so much. Till I see you again. R.I.P. Love always Danell

My heart felt condolences to the family. I will always remember David as the one who was always happy. He loved having good times with friends, and when ever you ran into him he always had a big hug for you. He was always doing spur of the moment things like calling the Marquis from New Orleans and ordering a round for the whole bar. David had a big heart and lived his life that way. He left good memories for all. You will be missed my friend.

I cannot express how sad I am to hear about David. I can only imagine how his daughters and other family members must feel. What a great picture you picked. One thing about David that I will always remember is his wonderful laugh. He will be greatly missed.
