Since first meeting David in late August, 1987, he was never anything less than friendly, hospitable, and generous. It was always a treat to visit him and Tim whenever I was alongside with Brian. My best memory of David is when Brian, I, and other friends would freeze our feet off at the Cotton Bowl, then come back to Tim and David's place for the biggest New Year's spread of the BEST food. It seemed to be such a joy for David to treat us college boys, and we were always grateful for what he would do for us. I hadn't seen David in-person in a few years, but I've enjoyed keeping-up with him and Tim via mail and via Brian and Reta. He brought joy to those he met, and for that I am thankful.

Brian, Reta, and Tim,

Our thoughts and prayers to you all during this difficult time. No words can truly express how we feel for your loss. May you fond memories and times of past laughter and joy help you heal. We know there is a missing part of you family, but David knew how much you loved him. We are sending you loving thoughts and think about you daily.

I never got to meet David, and only knew him through Tim, but I came to understand what a wonderful man he was and a loving mate. Tim and I became kindred spirits, as we both had close family members that were very ill. I wish so much that I could have gone to PA from TX if only to give David the biggest hug ever! He will be sorely missed, and I know he's looking down from Heaven smiling at his loving family. God bless you, David, and Tim, hold on to the lovely memories of your life together.

I had the pleasure of knowing and working with David for over 26 years in Texas. Even though I left Texas Urology for a period of time, he always kept in touch and wanted to know how my family was, even when he was going through a difficult time with his own health.

Some may not know David was also an avid "grower" of plants in the office. He would grow the largest and prettiest African Violets anyone had ever seen. And, after Christmas, you didn't throw Poinsettias away, David somehow managed to salvage those "spindly" plants into a gorgeous foliage plant for the next year.

David was a kind and gentle soul. He was a courteous gentleman, He always went above and beyond what was required of him for the patients, co-workers and the doctors.

Tim, words cannot express my sorrow for your loss. The love the two of you had for one another was apparent. Hold those precious memories close to your heart, for he is still with you.
