I knew Dave in the 9th grade at Pulaski Hts Elementary. We stayed in touch over the years when he and Eve moved to Houston. Many fun times together as members of GGB stealing watermelons and goin to juke joints. We had a ton of fun. A wonderful smile, big heart and infectious sense of humor. Will sorely miss him.

David was a wonderful older brother. We had many good memories and times together. He loved his entire family and all his friends. He loved to travel and learned all he could about wherever he went. He loved to read and learning was important to him. Mostly, he loved people and wanted to help all he could. I will miss David very much and always be grateful he was my big brother. RIP
