Not only was David musically talented, he was a wizard at keeping his cars beautiful. I remember his early 60s white T-Bird and how he labored to keep it spotless and functioning perfectly. He was a runner, and though we never participated in a race together, running with him in the neighborhood just before he started getting his memory lapses was a special memory for me. I'm going to miss you, brother.

David was the best drummer I ever played with, and the nicest human being I have ever known. He always had a smile, a quick one-liner, and a great sense of humor. David just always seemed to make you feel better. I will miss him more than I can say.
