David and Hanna were friends to many of us who grew up in Tarrytown especially as teenagers. I fondly remember David for his laid back attitude and his dry wit and humor.....a very sweet, loyal and honest friend to many including me during our young years when Austin was a much more pleasant place to live!

I first knew David in the mid 1980's as an insurance company co-worker and friend. We were latter reunited at Texas Builders and where he retired. I remember David's vast knowledge and wonderful work ethics and his telling of stories of his life. He will me missed. I pray for his family and friends during this time.
