  1. We are so sorry to know that David has died.
    We remember him as a very young man playing
    with his cars. Of course we remember April and
    young David staying with Pete and Maureen and
    hanging out with Karen and Lynn when they would
    let you. Very fond memories of all of you.

  2. May the memories each of you have of David as he ran his own race called life, help to comfort you in the days ahead. He will forever be in the memories the Hutton family has of special people we’ve been fortunate enough to have had in our lives.

  3. David was a gentle soul and he will be missed deeply by the Lampkin family.
    My sister and I were sharing fond memories that involved David not long ago, and I am comforted that I will always have these memories of him in my life.

    My heart and prayers go out to Jo and family in this time.

  4. David and I were married for 35 years, we had our ups and downs but no matter what we always shared love for each other, for our children, our grandchildren and our friends.

    As I told the grandkids, he was so missed by his mom and dad that he went to heaven to join them and to be with Jesus. He will be there waiting with open arms when it is our time to join him.

    There will foverve be a hole in my heart that can never be filled. He was a unique and kind soul. There was nothing David could not fix, and he enjoyed a challenge. His friends have been such a godsend to us at this time.

    Thank you to everyone who was there fighting this battle with us.

    Joann Peters
