  1. I went to school with David during High School. If I remember right, his family had moved to Bryan from Brookshire, Texas. Great guy, as I can recall. David NEVER had an unkind word for anyone. I am sure he will be missed. May God bless you in your time of need.

  2. we have moved to San Angelo and found out about David’s passing from a relative in Bryan. We loved David and his wonderful family so very much and they were such an important part of our younger life. We wish for all the family that they can look past the grief and focus on what a gracious and wonderful young man David was and how much he meant to many people. We are grateful that he was able to receive his transplant and live long enough to watch his children grow up.He expressed how much that had meant to him to us at his Dad’s funeral. Please know we hold you all in our prayers. In Christian Love, Gary and Ruth Ray

  3. I had the opportunity to work with David in several asbestos depositions in Birmingham, AL in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. He was always a pleasure to work with and represented his clients well. I enjoyed his company and I know he will be missed by your family. He was an all around great guy.

    My deepest sympathy,
