    We are so very sorry to hear of David’s passing. He was such a good man and will surely be missed. I hate that we missed his service. We had no idea he had passed until today. Ann, Blake, Laura, you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

    I spent many lunch breaks with David and Co. at Excel. We talked about everything from love of music to how to write formulas in Excel spreadsheets. He was very kind and very intelligent. He impacted my life in just the right way at just the right time. Praise Jesus for David’s time here with us. We will miss him, until we see him again.

    So sorry to hear this. David was one of the nicest, funniest, and best people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. I have lots of great memories listening to him singing karaoke and cutting up. He loved his wife and family so much. My prayers are with Ann and the rest of the family.
