  1. My prayers are said for Dave’s family and friends. David was quite a character. I loved him and am proud that I was able to become friends with him for a short period of time. He taught me what a Christian man should be. He taught me how wonderful the Christian life is. How wonderful God loves us and forgives us no matter who we are and no matter what we have done in this life here on earth. I know Dave is laughing with great joy. I look forward to hearing his laughter again one day. Brenna

  2. To David’s family, I remember David way back in High School he always joked about my last name but he was always very nice to me. I remember sometimes he was the quiet one. But I was very happy that I was part of his life in High School. My father had told me that he had met a person who knew me and that person was David, My father told David that I lived in Florida with my husband and that I had 5 great kids he also told David that I was coming to California this year and that I would visit David to talk about old times in High School. My dad called me up to tell me that David had passed away I could not believe the news. My Heart goes out to his Parents and especially to his children I want to say to you, Your Son, Brother, & Father was a great person I only wish I made time to visit him. Please keep him always in your Hearts and he will always be there with you. With all my Love Carmen Lomparte (Bustios) and Family

  3. I am sorry to hear about the loss of David. I met him a few times as I was friends with Maria at Hawthorne High.
