    David was one of my soldiers and a member of our 351st family. I am so sorry for his sudden loss and pray for his family. He served with distinction in Iraq and continued to serve our command and our country preparing for his next deployment. Our country and his community will forever be in his debt for his selfless dedication to serve, reflecting our Nation’s best values. We will miss him and we will never forget him.

    Dave was a very influential and important role model for me. We got to know each other very well while working together on the US Forest Service “Mud & Flood Crew” back in the summer of ’85. That friendship continued later during our daily interaction at Snow College. As a young freshman, I genuinely respected and admired Dave. He had just returned from serving an LDS mission and he had many opportunities to share with me his own inspirational experiences. Dave was a huge influence in my own decision to serve a mission. I will be forever grateful for his kind example and gentle mentoring during a critical period in my personal development. I don’t think I ever saw him without a big smile on his face.

    I was one of the few co-workers who had the privelege of meeting David in person. In my other role as a national guardsman, I was doing my annual training at Nellis and met with David during his first few weeks with us. His energy and passion to serve military families reminded me of why I am so passionate about what we do. He was an inspiring man to know, and words cannot convey our most sincere condolences. Our thoughts are with David’s family always. Ben AR MOS JFSAP.

While many of his co-workers from around the country had not personally met him, they knew about his great commitment to his country through his military service and his passion to serve his fellow service members and their families. We share in the loss of a great friend and a brother-in-arms.
 May God grant your memories of David as a source of comfort and sustain you in the days ahead.
