David and Phyllis touched our hearts many times since we moved in next door.
From the moment we met David it was obvious how big his heart and genuine his heart was.
A favorite memory of mine is my daughter was just a little over 3. She was watching out the window, David and Phyllis were walking
Hand in Hand my daughter just kept commenting they love each other so much.
I as well saw the love between them.
I will miss visiting with David over the Fence.
All our Prayer’s for the Family, May God hold you close!

Phyllis and family,
Our hearts are broken at this news. David was such a kind and genuine man, always had a smile. We have missed having you as neighbors and will always treasure the doll crib David made for our daughter using reclaimed wood. No doubt he is creating something spectacular in heaven with his friend, Jesus. Our love and thoughts are with you.

In His Grace,
The Neugent Family
