    I’ve known Dave since Junior High.
    His wit and wisdom will be missed.
    You may not always agree with Dave, but seldom could you refute his facts or logic.

    You will be missed.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have known David for 25 years online. I met him the Legion HQ BBS. He was a good political debater. His arguments were always solid and I don’t recall any personal attacks. He will be missed.

    I knew Dave from band at CHS. I believe he was drum major for at least three years ending in 72-73. Dave was a solid leader who advised the younger band members in a constructive manner. Which we needed badly. Much appreciated including his dry sense of humor.

    David was a friend of my through high school in Charlotte. We went to my junior prom together. I had been following him on Facebook but didn’t realize he’d passed until I saw his picture among those in the Charlotte Oriole Lost Classmates. Please accept my condolences and my prayers.
