    I just learned of David ‘ s passing. He and I spent many long night together on first watch at RJD CF at Rock Mountain. He was a good Officer and my friend. He will be missed. It saddens my heart to know he passed away. My prayers go to David and his family and friends. So long my friend.

    Those of us who knew David knew he was a hard worker. He was very dedicated, especially to CCPOA and many other organizations. May he Rest in Peace.
