I am so sad to hear of Dave's passing. I first met Dave and Vickie when their kids were at York High School. I then worked with Dave at the brewery. Dave was always smiling and great to be around. He was always ready to lend a hand. All who knew him will miss him.

Since hearing the sad news of David's passing I have been thinking of the fun memories from Woodrow Wilson Elementary. Especially those
of walking home from school with the other neighborhood kids. And, of course, seeing his smiling friendly face in the halls of NNHS. He was always such a nice guy. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

After hearing the sad news of David's passing I have been thinking of the fond memories from Woodrow Wilson Elementary. Hanging out at lunch, joking around on the walk home with the other neighborhood kids. He was always such a nice guy with a fun personality. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and I hope that sharing your wonderful memories of David will help to ease the pain at this time of sorrow and loss.

I am so sorry to hear this news. I worked for the HOA. He always came in to chat with me for a few minutes when he'd bring in the dues. Always joking about when he made his payments. Such a sweet man. One of the few residents I miss seeing.

David was a good friend of mine growing up in the east end of Newport News. I'll never forget driving him around in his 1961 Oldsmobile while I had my learners permit. I actually parallel parked that behemoth to get my drivers license. What a great guy! Left us way to soon. Godspeed David.

David was one of my favorite Typhoons, it was always fun sharing the great times at Newport News High School and even though I was several years ahead of him, David had a great recall of the NNHS history that we loved to talk about..We may have exaggerated a tad, but er're not perfect...

He will be missed for sure...my best to the Family....Bobby Hilling, NNHS Class of '62
