My sympathy to all of David's family. We went to high school together and I lived at the bottom of Mill Hill on Raymond Street. So difficult to give up a loved one. We'll keep all of you in our prayers. Mary Jo Trimble

David was a very good friend when we were at HTHS. The three musketeers, Lennie, David and Eddie, could always make us laugh and keep us entertained. I have many fond memories of David and our great circle of friends. God bless his family during these very difficult times.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. My parents ran around with Bud and Viola, so David and I hung around. As we went to Jr. High and High School, we were always seated closely, Dalton-Darrar. And later, Viola and I worked at Bowen Center together. I am so sorry for your lost, but I can tell that you will have a lot of happy memories of David.

Janice, what a beautiful video. Boy, did that ever spur some memories! How well I remember the cowboy outfit..David, Billy Hopkins, and I all had to have one...and with a 2-gun holster...so we could run around the neighborhood playing cowboy & Indian. When I saw the photo of David in the ball cap I thought I was looking at his grandfather, Pete Furry, again. Hopefully there's a way to save that video.
Ann Marie & family left a message on February 12, 2007:

David was one of my oldest friends. We grew up across from each other on Mill St. in Harrisburg, IL. I had not seen him in many years but will always have many fond and unforgetable memories of him and his mother, his Aunt Dean, Mammer & Pete. Those were wonderful days!
