A great friend since high school. I first met him when we both were on the track team. He run the 880 meter, and was great at running that distance on the mile medley relay team. I would see him and his wife at Wal Mart. We would always talk about good old times high school days. Rest In Peace brother you will be missed.
God Bless

We will alway miss and remember him dearly. When driving down James street to visit Ashley he would always wave so happily everytime we would pass by. David and Lois were always walking around the neighborhood and we always enjoyed pulling over and talking with them. You will forever be in our hearts. -The Urquidez Family.

So Sorry to hear about David. I have fond memories of David in High School and running track with him. He was a tough guy on the track. He ran the half mile, which in my mind is the hardest race in track, and he was good at it.Saw him at many garage sales and we looked at & talked about the books & stuff on sale. He always had a big smile on his face. I'll miss him as will a lot of people who knew him.
