Love ya David

I grew up in Lompoc and remember David quite well when I returned home to take care of my "elder parents". . .Monte and Isura De Almanzo.

There was a forty year span as I left Lompoc for San Francisco and when I returned David was there with his great smile and many "pearls of wisdom". . .we shared many, many stories of our lives as children in Lompoc. . .some good and some not so good. . .but we did succeed and I'm proud to have been his friend. . .even if I...

David; I was saddened when I read the obit. It was great to have worked with you at J.M. You always had a smile on your face and a good word, Even I had left J.M. in 1972 there are people that I do remember the good times, and and the great people that I worked with there, and you where one of them.Rest in peace.,

I was saddened by the news when my parents broke the news to me were they found out about it at la purism church. My most sincere condolences to the Gaitans and other family members. To the people that were affected and impacted by his life god bless us all.

Dad, I remember your wonderful laugh and your voice since I was barely old enough to ride on your shoulders. I am very sorry for all of our missed opportunities to be together, and know you would want our Family to use our opportunities in the Future to always treat each other with Fairness and Kindness. I am glad you are in Heaven with Grandma and Grandpa now, and know you and they understand.
Love You Always,
