When I first met David he and I stopped to help a couple of elderly people who had been in a traffic accident. Using his prior knowledge as an EMT with MEMS ambulance service I knew those folks were in good hands. We were in a couple of college classes together that year. I was saddened to hear of his passing. He was a super nice guy, always willing to help anyone that needed help. My wife knew him as well as they grew up in the same neighborhood. Rest in Peace, my Friend.
