    David was raised with my brother and myself, making him like a brother to me! He was my confidante and best buddy even though he was a little younger than myself. I loved him very much and trusted him to be a good person; unfortunately, he was able to live long enough to show everyone that he was all of that and more. He was a gentle soul and almost died at a very early age due to being burned (scalded) over much of his body but he never allowed that to deter him. Smiles, he even went to bingo with me sometimes. He left us doing something he wish to do more than anything and that was to be Marine. I loved him and even today, I miss nephew, my buddy and my friend. You'd probably be a mellow man today after serving your country. Love you sweetheart and GOD BLESS YOU!
  • Rest In Peace old friend

    David enlisted in the United States Marines on April 11, 1966 prior to his graduation from Courter Technical High School were he ran track, cross country and he also played football. He was an outstanding person and he was loved by his family and friends. I am proud to have known him and to be able to call him my friend, rest in peace my old friend. You will live in the hearts of all those who love you and miss you!
