Enjoyed the friendship through DOT. To the family I wish each and everyone to cherish the memories with David. He was a great person to work with and a great friend to have @ DOT. My prayers and thoughts go out to you all. He always would talk about his family. I am sure he will do a lot of hunting up there because he did love that sport a lot. He was definitely a great teacher in what he knew @ DOT. Joanna, Chloe, and family may God wrap his arms around each one of you through this difficult time. Prayers to all.

Our hearts & prayers go out to family. I grew up next door to David’s grandparents, his father & I were like brothers. Libby & I graduated high school together. We were very close to David until he left Maxton. I hate we had lost contact with him, but were sure proud of the man he became. We know each of you have wonderful memoirs of David. Again we will keep your family in our prayers.
