I worked with Dave at the Nuke Outages, he was always energetic (to say the least) and always the guy who wanted to go in and fix ANY problem, no matter the difficulty. I always admired that about him.
Rest Easy Brother.

I had the fortune to know David as a student in my 5th grade class and as a classmate and friend to my daughters. David has a heart of gold, a smile that lit up a room, and a twinkle in his eye. My condolences to Anna, Nicole, and Jeffrey, his wife and daughters, and all of Davids family and friends

I was saddened when hearing of Davids death. I taught IA at Leland and had David as a student. (grades 6-12) I remember him as likable and he was a good student of mine. As many students graduate we teachers do lose contact with them, but dont forget their names when events like this happen. I was glad to read that David was a Veteran and joining the Navy gave him a sense of direction and purpose. It sounds like he was a great guy in his circle of family and friends.
