I was saddened to read of David's death last December and I offer my condolences to his family and friends. We were in the Boy Scouts together and I have many fond memories of David and his older brother John. Their father was especially kind and considerate of me as I worked my way through the ranks of scouting with his two sons. I also lived just a few blocks from them, and remember the touch football games in front of their house on Saint Mark's Ave. as well as chess games in their living room.
I left Charlotte in my early teens and we lost touch. Thanks to the internet I was able to contact him several years ago via a Christmas card I sent. David's health and memory had begun to fail him but Peggy responded with a nice letter informing me of his illness and said he did remember me; something that please me greatly. The picture is one I took at summer camp on Lake Norman. David is standing second from the left and John is in front. A. Gibbs Mitchell
