    Roger, to you as well as your wife and daughter. There are no words to express what we feel in this time of grief but, I would like to say that we all hurt greatly with you and your family. There is nothing to say that will make you feel better. I pray that God sends his angels in heaven to embrace you, comfort, console and make this time of grief a bit easier to go through for you as well as all your family. We do grip on to our faith and the promise of our loving God that we will see our loved ones again. We love you and we are praying for strength and consolation from the most high for all of you.

    The best caseworker I’ve had who truly cared about you and his work. He got to see his first sonogram a moment I’ll never forget we always talked about music and God we would pray, he truly had a heart to help others . God bless you and your family and thank you for bringing David into this world he’s truly touched so many I’m just one of the many .

    I came to know David at church and had the opportunity to work with him at Sprint. He was a truly amazing man. I haven’t seen him in 8 years but feel the loss of his life as if I had just seen him yesterday.
    My sympathies to you and all who knew and loved David.

    Pam and Roger,

    I am still at a loss for words. I didn’t know your son, but it sounds like he was an incredible young man! I have known you two for many years. You helped hold me up through the loss of my beloved husband and 4 others these last three years, and now I am struggling on how to comfort you during this horrendous time! I cannot begin to fathom losing my son, daughter-in-law or grandsons! We are NOT meant to outlive our children! There must be a plan, David was called early for a reason! I do know your strong faith, will bring much comfort to you both. I can continue to send love and prayers, to surround you especially now. You are in my thoughts constantly, and please know how much you are loved by so many. This will help guide you through these rough waters. We love you!

    May you find the peace that will sustain you through this indescribable pain. May sweet memories rob the loss of its suffocating power. Sending prayers.

    David was and still is very dear to our family. His friendship with our son Ryan was truly amazing to witness. Their humor, kindness and deep thinking was so similar hey were like brothers. I loved the great hugs David always gave me when he came over to the house. We pray for you and your family. God obviously needed David to look and speak over a bigger audience.

  20. Christine Glazier on March 19, 2019 at 11:34 pm

    David was a treasure to our family during a hard time. My son had him as a PCA for quite awhile and they stayed in touch for years. He’s missed terribly. We’re so sorry you are all going through this.

  21. Christine Leslie on March 20, 2019 at 11:29 pm

    I had the pleasure of working with David years ago. He was a wonderful young man. So sorry for your loss. Sending my thoughts and prayers.

  22. Patricia Earley on March 23, 2019 at 5:33 am

    Pam and Roger, it has been many years since we all went to bible school. I just want you both to know how truly sorry I am for the loss of your son. I’m sure he was a blessing to be around. Jesus took him home to be with him. It won’t be long and we will all be going home. May the sweet love of Jesus comfort you in this very difficult time. Praying for your entire family. Love Patricia Earley (Gies)

    I randomly thought about David earlier when I was in my car, and I wondered what he was up to as it had been many years since we talked.

    I was shocked when I searched his name on Fb. Although we were friends for only a short period of time because I met him not long before he left Bakersfield, I knew he was one of the good ones. The world is worse off for having lost him.

    RIP David

    I knew David when I worked at the Rainbow Center. I just now found out about his death and I am so sorry for your loss! I know this doesn’t mean anything probably, but David was a great guy and wanted to follow Jesus! He was funny and great to be around!
