    My Dearest Lisa, Paul and Adrian,

    I have so many wonderful memories of David’s laughter and his fun loving ways. When I was younger I thought he was the smartest man on earth because he was so full of knowledge and always had a story to tell. And just like my dad he loved music and I always enjoyed listening to him play his guitar. He will always be in my heart. And although I am not there with you my heart is. May the Lord bring comfort to you and your family as you grieve the loss of a very special man, husband, father, and friend. Love Aunt Kitty

He put his customers ahead of anything else, and I knew that he always gave his best efforts on our behalf. David was an honest man with great integrity. I considered him a friend, and he will be missed. Condolences to his family, and loved ones.

  11. I am deeply saddened by the news of David’s passing. I first met him in 1985 when he was working for his great buddy Claire Shoemaker. I found David to be an energetic, dedicated and fun person to deal with then and during his time with Soundtex. I got to know David much better when we worked together for CGC starting in 1999 and again during his time as Executive Director of the AWCA of which I am a board member. David was a very kind and truly dedicated person with a huge heart. I have many fond memories of fun times and my life is richer having had David in it and I will miss him.

  12. Aimee and Gareth Hales :

    Gareth and I were shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the passing of your father. My heart goes out to the entire family, but especially, Paul and Adrian in this time of sorrow. Words can not begin to express how we feel.

    I will always remember Uncle Dave as a happy, cheerful storyteller, who always had a long winded joke to tell. Uncle Dave loved a good time and was always smiling, with a funny laugh that was contagious to everyone around him. Mostly, Uncle Dave was a loving father.

    We wish we could be there with all of you. Please take comfort in knowing how much we all love your dad. Uncle Dave will be greatly missed. Our love and thoughts are with you.

    XXOO – Aimee Anscombe (Hales) & Gareth Hales
