He was a man of strong faith, deep feeling, and tremendous compassion. David’s greatest passion was assisting people in any way he could.

He enjoyed his time and experiences with Encounter Church, the Dallas Amputee Network, Benbrook YMCA and other Regional YMCAs, White Settlement Senior Citizens Center and TCAN. When he wasn’t involved with his organizations he was enjoying his time growing his houseplants or involved with marathons. Throughout his life, David cultivated many lifelong friendships. One of his closest friends and companions was Kinsey, his loving service dog. To David, to be a friend was to have a friend for a lifetime!
