David will be remembered as a brilliant, hard working man of exceptional character. He worked with us for a few years and in that time demonstrated unmatched work ethic and an eagerness to help in any way he could. We are deeply saddened to hear of his passing but are comforted to know he is with his Savior in Heaven. We are steadfastly praying for his entire family as they grapple with their grief. The world is missing a truly great man.
