I was shocked to hear of David's health situation back in Abilene. I never met him in AHS. I use to go out to the Ag barn on S Treadaway and helped take care of my neighbor's Hampshire pigs and met David at the Ag barn. I may be wrong, seemed like he rodeoed. Sending my heart felt condolences at this time to his family, I'm sorry for their loss and as our AHS'66-'69 classmate.
