To Sharon and family, I'm sadden to learn of David's passing. My deepest condolences to you. May you have many great memories to see you through this time and into the future. We were classmates at Marissa High School in the early 1960's. He was a good person and fun to be with. May he rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
