I am so sorry to hear of David‘s passing. He was in our class (1975) at Cameron growing up. He was a good guy with a level head. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

David is my nephew. I loved him very much and will miss him. He had a great sense of humor and was very fun to be around. I live in Seattle, so I didn't see him very often, but I always enjoyed being with him. He served his country and was a proud Marine. He loved his family. I will miss you David.

A great friend of forty years. We spent some happy time together, when Megan was born. We spent some sad times together, when little David passed. You have gone home now, I'm sorry we could not be there for your send off. We will all miss you dearly. Semper Fi my old friend, Semper Fi. Ed & Sharon Mitchell
