RIP my friend! Well done thou good & faithful servant. May God bless and comfort your family, as well as your brothers & sisters with LPD.

When I was an SRO, every summer we conducted a Youth Academy for middle school kids as a leadership class. David always gave his time to come speak to the kids. Imagine app 15 middle school kids completely silent as he described taking his last breath...before being resuscitated! To this day, I still get chill bumps.

So sad that another local hero has gone so soon, but our loss is heaven's gain. This one has regained his strength, and is able to run free from the pain and restrictions his earthly body held. As the daughter of a NC fallen officer, I have walked the road this family now must trod. God be with them and hold them in the palm of His hand.

A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Lexington Police Department. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!
