As an essential worker during this pandemic, David risked his health to aid his community. He devoted himself to his work within the housing community, and his efforts were seen by all those around him. He was a truly selfless man who worked to give his daughter the best life he could.  David was such a great  son, and caregiver for his dad who depended on him for his care while recovering from a stroke. One of the hardest and resilient workers there was. As a beloved father, son, and brother, David's memory is one that brings joy to those that knew him. 

Passing away at the age of 64, David is gone too soon. He left behind his 25 year old son, Coby, and his only daughter, Samantha with who he lived with. She is 22 and pursuing her college education. She wants to honor her Father by hosting a memorial with her extended family. Her goal is to host her Father's memorial on February 6th, his birthday.

We are asking our community and anyone touched by our story for help. Any donations that can be spared during this turmoil time are of great value to his family and surrounding community. All funds will be put toward the medical expenses and memorial costs and will go directly to Samantha and her extended family. 

Thank you for your time reading our story and for any help you can give.
