David was my dad’s cousin, I grew up knowing Dave as a cool, funny, caring man. He was always there to make us laugh and feel welcomed. Of all my dad’s cousins, David was my favorite. I’m sorry for his sudden loss of life. My condolences go out to Darla, Dustyn and Stacey. I’m very heartbroken to learn of his passing.
