So many memories that you have blessed (or cursed…) us with. Was driving through denham the other day and a swear I kept seeing that red Suzuki Samuria with the Duck Poe spare tire cover, I know this was you entertaining me. It is surreal that you are gone, the world will never be the same. I know you will do what you can to protect us from up there, and watch that beautiful young lady grow into a woman and start her own family. Your family and extended family are in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for your service, your friendship, and memories. Rest in Peace

You were one of the GOOD GUYS and I am saddened that you are gone. Our streets are less safe now without you and we will always be grateful for your service to our community. I wish to give your family and the police department my sincere heartfelt condolences. David Poirrier cared about the people he served and protected. We will miss seeing him weekly in the 70815 area code. Heroes walk among us and some fly above us. You will be missed sir.
