    I am deeply saddened at the passing of cousin David. David was a truly remarkable person, always pleasant and enjoyable to be around. His love for nature was evident in everything he did, and he found such joy in explaining the wonders of the natural world to those around him.

    My early memories of David included pheasant hunting and explaining hunter safety to me. His laughter, especially around a hearty meal, was infectious and brought warmth to everyone present. David’s great sense of humor and his knack for delivering the perfect joke made every gathering more enjoyable. He had a unique way of always seeming deep in thought, which only added to his charm and wisdom.

    David will be deeply missed by all who knew him. His memory will forever live on in the stories we share and the laughter he brought into our lives. Please accept my heartfelt condolences during this difficult time.

    With sympathy,
    Rusty Williams
