I have been in touch with David's son, Davy, and he said David's death was a surprise to everyone.  He died of an aneurysm.

David and I were next door neighbors during our high school years and he signed my yearbook with the greeting, "Hi Ole Neighbor."  We had conversed many times via email and Facebook the past 12 years and every time he would use the same greeting "Hi Ole Neighbor."  Guess he never forgot!  He was a funny, sweet guy and he said , "We had been classmates, neighbors but most of all friends."  I will always remember you, "Ole Neighbor."

You got to be kidding, Was just thinking about David the other day and wondering how he was. I lost contact with him when a couple of years back I posted something on Facebook that was nothing but a joke, funning with him, can't even remember what it was now but something simple.  Sure sorry to hear about this. His parents and mine were the greatest of friends when growing up and after they all married. We went to his Dad's church there on Mercer Ave. for years before my dad felt a calling to the ministry that took him to Tucson Arizona. Anyone reading this happen to have any information on Charlotte Banks that use to go to Mercer Ave? I'm in Tucson, on facebook Warren Garrison, hit me up please. Again, sorry to hear this about David, I almost didn't read the post because almost everyone that's died recently were in other grades than me and I really didn't know them, glad I didn't let this pass, but sorry to hear this news. -------Warren Garrison

PS Is David's mother stil alive, Mildred?? IN case anyone has answers on these hit me up at please rather than here.
