Dave gave me a great hint for driving when I first got my license back in 1974 that I have passed on to others. RIP Dave.
I only met David once at a NCOTC dog awards dinner. He was kind and so supportive of his wife Eleanor.
Please accept our sincere condolences and we share your grief.

I deepest condolences to Eleanor and family,
Jerry & I are heartbroken for you, Steven & Karen. I always had interesting &/or fun conversations with David when he came by the office & Jerry caught up with your family whenever he was at Lowe’s.
We are out of town & feel badly to have been unable to tell you this in person. Please, accept our deepest sympathy.

I was shocked and saddened to hear this sad news. I met David at the Banquet in January and was impressed with his kindness, strength and bravery.
We are sorry we could not be there Friday, but please know our thoughts and prayers were and are with you and your family.
