David was well loved by most all who knew him. He was kind, generous and loving. He was also intelligent, humorous, and wise. He was always willing to share those parts of himself with others. He was completely devoted to his family, most especially his grandkids. He was a man of conviction who was rarely swayed from what he thought or believed.
