I wish I would've known he was battling cancer, I would have made the trip down to North Carolina to visit him.Since I left ERICO I reached out to him maybe once or twice, though I thought of him often. Such an absolutely brilliant man, and I will never forget him. One of my most favorite people I have ever worked with. May God Bless You David!

David had a great sense of humor and was a kind and friendly person. Much more than that he brought my sister so much happiness during the time they had together and I am so happy they were able to share those years together. We will miss you David.
