He loved Mom and was a wonderful son-in-law to her. They watched golf, Nascar and football together. He made sure she didn't miss the Carolina/Clemson game when she was in the hospital before she passed away. He took her a Gamecock scarf so she could show team support since she couldn't wear her sweatshirt. She adored David.

David and I went to Irmo High School together. For prom during my senior year, David hosted a dinner at his house for me, my date, Denise Powell, our mutual friend Mike Daves, and his date, Barbara Carroll. David prepared a gourmet meal and explained each course with a put-on French accent. It was a terrific evening and both of the ladies were moved to tears when single red roses were brought out on blue pillows.

Thanks so much, David. Wish we had been better at staying in touch. I miss you!

When David and I started dating he had a jeep and on our 3rd date he wanted to take me driving in the jeep with the top off. We decided to get food and pulled into a restaurant. The sprinkler system was going off and I got soaked as it hit me. The look on his face was priceless, we started laughing, I wasn't even upset that my hair got messed up. To make me feel better he did a u-turn in the parking lot and drove slowly by the sprinklers again, this time on his side so we could be drenched together. He made sure to get extra wet. I stared at him in amazement that he had done that for me and then we laughed. It was a little thing but I loved him then.

David was a great co-worker and had a unique sense of humour.
He was a diehard South Carolina Gamecocks football fan. We shared the same passion for the college footballs and we had a lot of fun.
David will be sorely missed and may him rest in peace.

David was my super-helpful partner creating SharePoint collaboration tools for all our team-building work events over the past several years. He was always ready for a party. Will miss his hamburger spice mix for the annual picnic. He never would tell me what was in his magic mix, but it was delicious. I will miss his presence in our Lunch Bunch!

We are thankful for all that he brought to our team -- both the laughs and his teasing with a hard time, like our last conversation about hydrogen, oxygen and why H2O (water) does not explode.
