My most sincere condolences Ms. Pat, to you and your family. David and you have always been so very helpful at ORM with all my projects. I will miss the most however running into both of you at lunchtime, seeing both of you enjoying your table together was always a bright moment of the day.
May he rest in peace.

Dave was one of those folks who always had a smile and never met a stranger. We will all miss him around the workplace, he brightened up everyone’s day. Have to believe he’s in a much better place now. Hugs to you, Mrs. Pat.

David and Pat Barron was the sunshine of the Claiborne Building. His passing has left the place a little darker.

Ms. Pat, I’m so sorry. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Dave was wonderful to work with, always pleasant – even with all my questions! I remember an ORM annual meeting several years ago. Dave was introducing himself to speak about the RC04. He spoke briefly about himself but ended that the most important part of his history/job description was being your husband and your chauffeur. Sherri G @ UNO

Dave was incredibly witty, funny. He was always in an “up” mood. He was the consumate professional at ORM and always happy to help out with any situation that was in his wheelhouse. He was well-respected by our clients. I know GOD has greater plans for him…love to Pat.

I didn’t know Dave personally but through the Zoom worship services each Sunday by Bro. Malcolm. I remember the last service where he looked so well and had such hopes for healing. May God bless you Pat and your family. I know you will miss him. Prayers continuing for your family now and the days ahead.

David was truly a blessing to be around. He could make you laugh until your stomach hurt. He could tell a story like no other. He cherished his family . He always treated Pat kind and put her first before himself. Always willing to help others. David will truly be missed by many.

Pat, You and your family have our deepest condolences. Dave was a wonderful, caring person and I am very proud to be one of his cousins. I remember our family visits to Las Cruces during our summer vacations to visit Grandma, Margaret, Emerson, Bob and Dave, We had such good times, I also fondly remember your wedding where I served as an usher – it seems like only yesterday. I am also thankful that Stephanie and I had the occasion to have a meal with you and Dave when you traveled up to Ruston to view the tornado damage on the Tech campus a few years ago. Please know that you are, and will continue to be, in our thoughts and prayers. Much love, Guy

Dave was a wonderful guy. Your family has been continually in my prayers. Love to you, Pat.
