"David was one of a kind. He had a great sense of humor, he was quite the prankster and he could always make you smile no matter what kind of mood you were in. He had a unique way of looking at things and always had a different perspective no matter what the situation was. Growing up with and hanging out with "Ike" was interesting, to say the least. Rest in peace "Ike" you will be sorely missed but fondly remembered by all who knew and loved you."
