I'm in complete disbelief that I'm writing this memory about David... I think I share the same feelings about him as a friend that almost everyone that knew him well did. He was honest (sometimes too much), caring, reliable and thoughtful. He had an uncanny way to say the right thing at the right time to make you laugh - right when you needed it the most. My wife and I are still in shock.
David and I worked in the same cube at the Department of Justice in the early 2000's as the engineering leads for their email, active directory and Microsoft infrastructure deployments. At the time, this was fairly new technology which meant we were working many late nights and drinking at the bar many late nights. It was the most successful project in OJP history due to our team and David's mentoring. David became one of my closest friends here almost overnight and 18 years later I still considered him one of my closest friends. To his family and close friends that I have not had the pleasure of meeting, David was truly one of a kind. Please know that your tears are shared here in DC and many other places as I know David enriched so many of our lives. God bless each of you and I hope these memories of just how awesome he was as a person will help each of you heal. Love you David!

In a few hours I will be travelling to say my final goodbye to you my friend. It's ironic that it's when I just finished my associate's degree, and as I prepare to start for my bachelor's in Business Administration, why ironic? Because David was the reason I got enough courage to finally enroll in college, even when I was feeling defeated David was there to cheer me on, and give me advice on anything and everything

I mean you even gave me advice on death, when I said I wasn't going to be able to bear it when the time came and my mother, grandmother, etc passed away.

"Jacob, people die, Your mother is going to die, your grandmother is going to die, Brandon, myself, that stranger you passed on the street. Stop worrying about it because worrying about something you cannot change does nothing, and you'll waste your time instead of making the most of your life."

I cannot begin to express in any words in the english language how much you changed my life in just 3 years, 3 years of some of the best memories of my life, some of the best experiences. I know strength and perseverance because of you. I love you buddy, and will forever miss you my friend.

Dave was always easy to talk to and quick with a story. We enjoyed his company at many family gatherings and he was definitely a part of our family. We will miss him dearly. Fly with the angels, Dave, and look after us.

One of my fondest memories of Dave is the day we spent together walking around Vegas after a conference. We spent all day and most of the night going from casino to casino just talking and laughing it up. It's a simple memory but one that reminds me of Dave's generosity, kindness, and ability to make people feel comfortable. He was a great friend and colleague and I miss him dearly.
