Bill and Kippy
I always enjoyed talking to David. I only knew him from the Marina, but he was so helpful to us. When we needed something David would help us. Our last conversation last week involved talk about his operation, he told me that it was serious and there was a chance he would not pull through, but he said I can’t live like this. I wished him the best. As I was leaving he was getting in a truck and moving it away from the slip way…..just like he done for so many, always helping someone. Rest in Peace my friend.
