"The only stupid question is the one that was never asked."
Ever-helpful and always willing to instruct newbies, David shared his knowledge joyfully. He was also the unofficial leader of the long-running 'Back Porch Chats' where members gathered to discuss their day, and lend support and friendship to others.
Even when his health deteriorated and he was in constant pain, he was cheerful and ever-helpful to all. A dedicated teacher and a loyal friend, he will be greatly missed by our community.
