    I would like to ad a fond thought to anyone reading this. I just saw the obituary in Airline Pilot... the only thing I read in it is the Obituaries. I had the opportunity to work with Dave for about 10 years. I will remember him fondly and it is true - he was a fine gentleman. I hope to spend more time getting to know him after I fly the last flight West. He was a fine man. God Bless.

  2. I was with David in the UKY ROTC unit in '58-'59. I was sure if he stayed in the military he would be a General based on his strength of character and intelligence. To me he was the real life version of what a man should be. David and Joyce were the perfect couple on campus. I can't say enough to celebrate their memories.
