He was a true southern gentleman, and I knew when I met him that he would be a part of our family instantly. He was a humble, kind, funny, loving and generous human being. He loved all of us, I think before he had even met us, and most importantly, he loved my sister unconditionally. Not only did he love her on her best days, but he loved her even more on her worst days. David had recently proposed to Cindy, and we were all looking forward to their special day. Just when we learned that David was on his way to a probable full recovery of his injuries, life delivered him a sucker punch. We all lost a great friend, future brother-in-law, son-in-law and uncle. We lost David. He will forever be in our hearts, and nobody will ever fill his shoes. My heart breaks for Leslie, Courtney, Christina Jo; Cindy, and Alexa. I have never seen such a dedicated, interested father, partner, and step-dad. Along with everybody else who knew and loved you, I will miss you forever, David.
