Carrie, girls, Margaret, Gene, Jennifer and Tommy. My memories of David was a gentle giant who loved family and people. I did not spend much face to face time with him, but I know how well loved he was. I have followed your family Carrie though news from Margaret and Gene. I know that they will continue to be by your side. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Sug and Ron Grant

David and I played many games of pool in the student Center at Louisiana College with friends. He was a loving person, he loved nature, his dogs, going to the lake, and dreamed of being a firefighter. When he entered a room all eyes went to him, like it or not, and everyone asked about his height. He was caring and friendly to everyone he met. He will be greatly missed. His daughters and wife were his world and I’m sure he fought very hard to stay here on Earth with them. Praying for all of those he left behind.

David will be missed. God bless his family. They're in our prayers.
