    David will be missed by all of us that knew him. My memories of David from high school were of his mischievous smile that he seemed to always have. My sympathies to not only his family, but to all of his friends that will miss him.

    This came as a real surprise to me. i always thought highly of David and worked with him at FedEx from his start in the dispatch office. i would always see him early in the morning when i came in when he was planing his route for the day. i am sorry he did not get to enjoy his retirement. prayers to the family.
