  1. David and I shared an office in the HL&P Electric Tower in 1974. We shared two apartments together, we had a wreck in San Angelo together , we skied in Ruidoso together. Many little times together, small events in time, but forged a life long friendship, my number one friend. You will be missed.

  2. He was one of my most challenging Sunday school teachers, and always kind and thoughtful. He was humble and generous, and a proud dad. Prayers and love to his family.

  3. Robert and Patricia Barrow

    Our condolence to David, Marsha and family. David was a true friend for over 30 years working and hunting together. I will miss our many chats.

  4. I just learned today of David's passing. I was a close friend of his and Donald's from our elementary years through high school. There were few people in my life that I respected as much as those two men. David will always hold a special place in my heart and memories. I look forward to seeing my friend again in Heaven.
