I was shocked to learn of David's passing. I did not know him at City. I met David at the YMCA many years ago. Over the years I found out that I had known his dad at the TNT Plant. His dad was a fine man. On my way to school in the mornings, I would run into David at the Kangaroo Station in Riverview. David was (is) a fine person.

I DID NOT KNOW OF DAVID'S PASSING UNTILL TODAY.  DAVID WAS THE FIRST "UPPERCLASSMAN" THAT I MET AT CITY.    HE EXPLAINED THE CLUB STRUCTURE TO ME AND SOME OF MY FRIENDS WHEN WE FIRST STARTED AT CITY.   HE WAS ALWAYS NICE AND KIND.  SORRY TO FIND OUT HE'S GONE.  RIP DAVE.

I was sad to hear David had passed on. I recall many lively conversations and debates around the lunch table our senior year and a great deal of laughter. He and David Robinson were our "two Davids," both sharp of mind and wit.

I remember David fondly though I haven't seen him since high school.  His witty comments made 10th grade English lively for me.  I was so sorry to hear that he passed away.
