    David was a wonderful person and never failed to make me smile with his great sense of humor. Not once in the few times I saw him over the last few years did he ever complain about his deteriorating health. I will miss my cousin. Condolences to his family and all who loved him.

    Janice and family, I was so sad to hear about David. He will always be remembered as a fun loving guy. Please know that you and the family will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Retiree of Southern Bell/BellSouth.

    I met David and went to grammer school with him at Wilson Elementary when his family lived on the corner of King and Mauney in Gastonia. David’s Mom started a Cub Scout Pack in the 4th grade at First Baptist. David’s Dad was transferred and I lost touch when they moved away, but reconnected when they moved back during High School. I knew he was living in Myrtle Beach, but I could never make contact. Hate to hear this news. Our prayers for your family.

  • Becky VanAntwerp and Judy Andrews Posted February 26, 2020 4:09 pm

    Janice, we were so sorry to learn of the loss of David. Our thoughts are with you and all your family at this very sad time. Just know we love and care about you.
