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
I will always remember that game against Gary Roosevelt where he led the Vikings to a 1 point game against Glenn Robinson. They lost that game but David was amazing that night. He was so fun to watch on the court. Rest in Peace David! -Tarick Abdo
Dave, Most remember you for basketball. I remember your love for your mom, dad, and family and sense of humor. My favorite joke teller of all time. RIP brother. You will be missed. -Curtis Robinson
To Ms. Joyce, Mark, and family
Oh my goodness how the years have passed by. It seems like just yesterday David and I were hangin together back in jr high and the first couple of years in high school. David was not only great at ball, but he was also such a great friend of mine during those years. I personally still cherish those years we had growing up together. I just learned of the news recently that David has passed away and am so sorry for you all. Ms. Joyce you raised a fine young man and I know you are proud of all of his accomplishments in life. May God bless you all through these times. -Matt Milanowski
Thoughts and prayers to you and your family. I am about 6 years younger than Dave, but remember sitting on the sidelines at Tower Park in Valpo getting a chance to watch him play street ball and was always amazed at his pure talent and vision. I would have been just getting into middle school but he’d pick me on his team and I got to play along side him on those hot summer nights under the lights at Tower Park. He will be missed, but never forgotten. -Thomas Rickman
