  1. David was a friend to all who knew him, a loyal district employee and an understanding and encouraging boss. His loss is difficult to accept and yet I know that his family has much to be proud of and those of us priviledged to work beside him will always remember him with fondness and admiration.

  3. Dear Donna and Family,
    I was so sorry to hear of David’s passing. He was admired by many of us in Edmond Schools. I was four years older than David and was a friend of David’s brother, Tom, when we went to Lawton Eisenhower High School. God bless you and your family as well as send you his peace that passeth all understanding. Sincerely, Stephen Crane


  5. I had the privilege of knowing David for twenty years. What started as a business relationship developed into a lasting personal friendship over time. David was a remarkable man who handled a difficult job with a calm professional style that endured him to all who worked with him. He loved his family and was a very compassionate man who always exhibited a humble appreciative manor for life’s blessings. His passing leaves a void that cannot be filled but the lessons he taught us all on how to live life, treat people and live life will endure for us. It was an honor to be his friend.

  6. Dear Donna, Please know that you will be in my prayers. How shocked and sad I was to learn of David’s passing. I can tell that he was deeply respected by his colleagues in the Edmond Public School System. I know that he will be greatly missed. My heart is with you during this very sad time. Sincerely, Judy Keegan Wolf

  7. I am so sorry to lose my dear friend. We are in NY for the holidays otherwise I would have been there with you. My love and prayers go to you and the kids. I promise to call when we return in January.

    With deep sadness love, Terry
