As a young boy growing up in Valpo, I idolized David and his game. That guy was tough as nails and could shoot from anywhere on the floor. My condolence to his family, RIP David. -Chad White
I knew David from our days in elementary school. We used to play baseball, kickball, football, and basketball together. Those were great times and fun days. I remember David as always being nice and easy to talk with. My thoughts are with his family, especially his brother Mark. -Marcus Powers
