  2. So sorry to hear of David’s passing. I enjoyed working with him. I have fond memories of going to the lake together and we rode our bikes to Red River a time or two. We also went to a few concerts together. He was always fun to be around. One of my favorite guys of all time. He will be missed.

  3. Great guy, great buddy, awesome friend! We had lots of fun in the late 60’s and early ‘70’s. A true friend that I think about often as our times together were meaningful and fun.
