was one of a kind. Opinionated, vocal and confident in his ideals. I first ran
across David and his wife Penny at Citizens Port Development meetings in the
90's while I worked for Louisiana Pacific. They were a great tag team when it
comes to politics. Robin and I saw and visited David and Penny at stock car
races, and they both had articles reporting the races locally. David once wrote
a letter to the editor challenging people to run for office and it was that
little push that had me sign up years back. And while he did not necessarily
agree with my politics, he wrote me a check to start me on my way.
Some people just gripe and complain and do nothing to try to solve issues. This was not David. He was feet first in controversy. He will be sorely missed in this community.
