David and his brother Bobby were my first two playmates in Newport when I was a child. His mother Anne was my mother's best friend and maid of honor at her wedding. I remember building towers out of playing cards at their home when I was 4 years old. Didn't see him after we moved away but remember the fun as a child with his family.

May he rest in peace and he will always be loved.
