i met David at a golf tournament in myrtle beach, sc 20+ years ago.....both of us lived in austin tx, and were about the same age, so we became golf buddies who probably played 2-3 hundred rounds together ...he was an excellent traveling companion for many golfing trips around the country

We shared a lot of good times together!! David was as good a boss as you could ask for. Three different cities and always enjoyed being around him and working for him. Enjoyed some good baseball games playing together when we were much younger! Golf came along in our older years and enjoyed that time playing golf. I could go on and on but those who knew him understand what I'm saying. Sorry that time and location kept us from seeing each other in our "golden years". He will be remembered by all who knew and loved him. Rest in peace my friend, Carl Miller
