I can't believe this. I came across this through a search of all past high-school or college fellow comp sci guys I grew up with. Having had professional success, I now wanted to financially help those who had helped me succeed. I knew Dave from high school and from my various comp sci classes in college. He was so helpful in getting me to understand the more difficult concepts and assisted me on my programming projects. I remember him from his skinnier days, so I had to do a double take when I saw the new pics, but I knew it was him from his crossed-arm look in the posted pics that he gave to my group of friends from '94-'97 in Moon and at Pitt. I am so sorry.
On behalf of the United States Submarine Veterans (USSVI), we offer our sincere condolences to Harry and all of David's family and friends in your loss and sorrow. May God whisper peace into your hearts and comfort and heal them. We are grateful for David's service to our country in the U.S. Submarine Service on the USS Louisiana SSBN-743. To our “Brother of the Dolphin” … "Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch. May you rest in peace and may God bless your loved ones who remain. Thank you for your service to our country." -- Rev. Ray Fritz, National Chaplain United States Submarine Veterans, USSVI.
To Harry and Family,
On behalf of the Charleston Base SUBVETS and Swamp Fox Chapter SUBVETS WWII, I offer you our sincere condolences on David's passing.

David will certainly be missed here in Jacksonville. He always had great stories which he would share with us at work. I will probably miss his wierd, almost baseball-like, golf swing the most. Rest in Peace young man.
Your passing has left a tremendous void in the lives of all your friends and family. I will miss the fun we had golfing and hanging out at La Nopalera. I will always think of you when I find myself at Palm Valley. Please know that you will be remembered fondly by all of those whose lives you touched. My sincerest condolences go out to your family. Goodbye friend.
Our deepest sympathies for your loss. David was a gentle, kind and considerate person. May God Bless you and your family at this time.

David you will be truly missed and were such a great friend. Thank you for all of your support through college (UNF) where we were students and at work all through the years where we were engineers together. You were brightest and most dedicated of us. God be with you my friend.
Deepest sympathy for the loss of your brother.
Had not seen you in many years. So very sad. May God Bless you. My condolences and prayers to his family. Now you are with your mom, uncle and grandparents.
You have been a complete joy to work with- so pleasant, so conscientious, so professional- making an architects job easy!
You will be greatly missed.
David, I'm praying that your soul is at peace and comforted by the light of the Lord. I am also praying for your father and brother- that they are consoled during this very difficult time.
David, you were such a great person. You taught me so much when I started working with you. I will miss the small lectures you gave me when I didn't know how to do something. You will always be remembered.
