It was rare to not see David without a thermos of coffee, a smile, and a kind word to share. He always had a hand ready to shake or a hug to give. He never met a stranger and would always lend a helping hand. He loved his family passionately and enjoyed spending time with them. He would want us to remember to “take time to smell the coffee”. David will be cherished and missed dearly.
