Uncle David, I miss you man. We miss you. I always loved stopping by my dad’s office at Community Pest Control in Pasadena and chatting with you on my visits home from NYC. Especially politics. We were always on the same page about them. Yuko, Kokomi, Momoka and I send our eternal love.

Dear David, I have thought hard how to remember you: your beautiful smile; your unique humor; your belief and trust in our Creator; and your generosity, especially of spirit, when it came to your grand children. I will miss your frequent calls and our political banter. I will miss your thoughtful holiday and birthday wishes. But mostly, I will miss you. Kathleen Bias (sister in law)

I love you brother. You always had the best sense of humor. I would love to have had the chance to give you a hug and say see you later. You were such a happy kid playing jokes on everyone, but you always had a good heart. I hope your family in Indiana appreciated and loved you as much as we did. Keep on playing jokes! Peace be with you. You are loved! Your sister Elaine and her family

David was loved in life and continues to be loved, as we remember his presence In our lives and in the lives of others in our family. We thank God for David. We especially remember his gentle kindness, care, and LOVE for his son, daughter, and for each of his grandchildren. Memories of his love of God, family, and country stand out as most important to him in his life. Our hearts are broken at his passing. We miss him tremendously. However, when we think of his ready and clever sense of humor and laughter, we are comforted and feel blessed to have had the time to make special memories with him. We will all remembered and cherish David, as a father and grandfather. Others, loved ones, and close life long friends will also remember him with love and respect for his unique qualities, special gifts, and talents. We look forward to God’s promise that those who die in Christ Jesus will see loved ones again when the Lord returns and takes us all home to be with Him throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity. We look forward to that day. God With Us
