  5. David had a good heart and did his best to make you feel you were special. Although friendship was important to him his family became the center of his love. You would know what David was thinking just by the cock of his head and slow grin. I will surely miss him. Deepest sympathy to my dear friend Carol and her family.

  7. Philip & Andrea Simpson :

    Dearest Carol and Family of David Whitehead,

    We join with so many others who knew David in offering our deepest sympathy on his passing. Although it is little consolation at this sad time, it should be of some satisfaction to know that in his passing you can celebrate the end of a very joyous and productive life.

    The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much money one has or what possessions they have accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched and the sorrow they leave behind. If the outpouring of sympathy on his loss is any indication, and it most certainly is, you can proudly and confidently say that his indeed was a life well-lived.

    May you find peace and comfort in knowing that his loss is felt by all who knew and loved him.

    In Sympathy,

    Andrea & Philip Simpson

    Sorry to hear about the passing of David. I count it as a privilege to have had the chance to share laughs with him, chat with him and shared a fun time together at Wendy’s wedding, otherwise, I would not have the chance to meet the real person you highly respected and talked about.

    May you find solace from the great provider and the anchor of your peace during this difficult time.

    My deepest sympathy to you and your family. If there’s anything at all that I can do to help, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

    -Angelito

    To David’s family,

    I would like to apologize for not attending David’s funeral service as I was away on vacation in Europe.

    I have had the chance to work with David for a very short amount of time (1 1/2 year) and only have good memories of my conversations and dealings with him. I will always remember him as a ‘straight shooter’ and down to earth individual and will miss sharing my point of views with him.

    On many occasions I have appreciated the concerns he has shown for the human factor in all of my business discussion with David.

    I would like to wish on my behalf and all of Bionest employees my deepest condolences to all the members of his family.

    It was with great sadness that I learned of David’s passing at a cutting event yesterday. I had not seen David in several years, but have very fond memories of his humour, passions, and insatiable curiosity. We spent many hours discovering things we had in common as our paths had crossed many times over the years. I am glad to have known him. My sincerest condolences to Carol and the family.

  16. I was so sorry to hear of David’s passing. He always made me feel like family, and I looked to him as a big brother. You and David made our stay in Griffin valley a special one, from the day we arrived to the day we left. Thanks for helping me to appreciate life, and showing me how to enjoy new trails I come across.
