It was such a tremendous joy and honor to grow up with someone who so went out of his way to make people feel loved and respected no matter who you were. It didn't matter if he only knew you for 15 minutes or all your life. He was sincere, thoughtful and absolutely hysterical. His sense of people and situations was uncanny.

David clearly understood and lived by the the words of the Beatles "....and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make"

He takes so much LOVE with him and leaves behind gifts for us all of lasting memories of true love and friendship for so many......

There are not enough kind words to describe Dave! His smile brightened the room. The first time I met him he won me over! Yoli brought him over to my house and my dog Rex had run off. Dave chased Rex down till he caught up with him and brought Rex back home safe and sound. (which we totally laughed about later) How sweet, we had just met a minute prior and he totally went out of his way. Dave always had this way of making you feel so special, like you were the only one in the room. He gave you all his attention. Always made us feel at home when my family and I went to visit. Made the best Moscow mules and his cooking was ohhh sooo delish! The laughs we shared, the Beatles and Led Zeppelin songs we sang together... I will cherish forever! The way he took care and loved my dearest bestie Yoli!! We are forever grateful, blessed and honored to have known Dave... Thank you Dave, we will keep your memory alive! God bless your loving sweet soul and may you rest in peace!
Love Scela, Mike and Jezebelle

My heart is with you Aunt Anita, Lori, Cyndee, Norm and Yoli. I'll always remember our fun times as kids and cousins. I can see Uncle Norman, Uncle Danny and Dad (Richard) welcoming David and them all sending us their love and support together. Heaven is rocking with a little extra music. Love you all, Laurene

Oh David, I can’t believe you are gone. You were the sweetest guy with such a gentle spirit, yet larger than life. I know you are having a blast with your dad, my dad, Uncle Harold and all your grandparents and they are loving you well!

I remember when Papa died and as I drove into the parking lot of the hospital, there you were, outside waiting for me. Arms open for a hug and an “I love you, Cuz”. I know when I get to heaven you will be there again, front and center, arms open for a hug. Because that’s what you do - you take care of the people you love. In fact I bet that’s why you had to go so soon. You wanted to get to heaven to make sure everything is just perfect for your family.

The Bible tells us that a thousand years here are like one day in heaven. It will only take a second for you to turn around and we will all be there. It will be harder for us left here without you, but we will always love you and we will always remember you. Until we meet again....

“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.”‭‭. 2 Peter‬ ‭3:8‬

This is my second attempt at posting, Mt. Vernon lost the first one.
Tomorrow we will lay you to rest Godson and I have been thinking how very special you were to Uncle Clark and myself. You were the furthest away yet kept in touch always, with your calls, packages, surprise visits and always thinking of us. You were also the most caring wonderful son to my sister. We are all hurting right now but,soon we will be meeting you at Heavens Door.Rest in Peace.
Love, Aunt Linda

Dave was the first person outside my work to befriend me when I moved to California in 2006. He welcomed me like family and we began a friendship that endured for well over a decade. Dave was always there to lend an ear, give advice or simply be “present” to support a friend needed somebody. During our friendship we shared so many outrageously fun, crazy times. Countless special experiences and days where our faces would hurt from all the laughter, smiling and joking around from the night before. There were also many times we would sit quietly together, discuss our lives, wants, dreams, politics, careers, music, sports, whatever! He was a great guy to talk to and had so many interests.
I consider myself so fortunate to have had Dave in my life. He was a caring, gentle soul who overflowed with kindness for others and spread so much joy to everyone he knew. He made such an impact on so many and will be missed dearly. I will ALWAYS cherish my memories of him and keep a special place in my heart for a very special friend. Rest In Peace bro.

I will miss Dave's warm hugs, Friday afternoon Margaritas, Sunday morning Chip shots.... Evenings around the fire pit listening to great music while he cooked us up the greatest Filet's ever and whipped us up the best Moscow mules in town! So many countless memories that we will cherish forever.💕simply the greatest!
RIP you Badass music loving man

I still remember the first time I met Dave when he was a checker at Vons in Manhattan Beach 25 years ago!  Who would have guessed a few years later he would begin dating my bestie Yoli and they would be LIFE LONG LOVES.  And shortly after that I would be working with him professionally.  Dave was always the best host and the sweetest guy....always taking care of everyone.  He always knew how to get me to look at new leather swatches (he would bring me a Reese's cup) and made the most amazing cookies every Christmas.  
The best thing about him was how much he loved and took care of my dear friend Yoli.  One of my favorite memories is when he catered a birthday party for her at his office lounge.  He hired 4 manicurists to come in and give us all pedicures while we ate and watched the season finale of American Idol.  Who does that?  It was so thoughtful! 
Besides his wonderful cookies, he was a great cook too. At their get togethers, he would always say that something wasn't that hot and then my mouth would be on FIRE!  I never learned!! 
 
Dave will forever be missed and never be forgotten.  RIP Dave.

Thought the world of David and there will be big hole in my heart. When David came to visit he had a busy schedule trying to see Mom, Sisters, Brother and many many nieces and nephews. His Mom, Aunt Linda and Myself drove down to visit David and Yoli and spend a couple of days. What a wonderful trip to spend quality time with David. Went to some of his local hangouts in Hermosa and Manhattan Beaches. Could never pay for a meal. Went to Comedy Club and everyone new David, got upfront table and treated like celebrities. Met up with David's best friend Mark and Adriana at their house for evening nightcap, sharing stories and talking into the wee hours. The high light of the trip was David and I the next day cruising up and down the PCH in his "Boss" mustang convertible. So Cool! I will miss him and his frequent phone calls checking in. Was redoing my fence and a bag of DeWalt drivers shows up at the house. So David! Will miss his smile, his laugh and his easy going lifestyle. Gone but not forgotten. Uncle Clark
