David was a true Southern Gentleman. Always kind. Always loving. Always had a gentle smile on his face. He made a lasting positive impact on everyone he met, even those whom only had the privilege of meeting him just a few times in their life. He raised beautiful children whose fun-loving attitudes are contagious. David will be dearly missed but always remembered. He now serves as a guardian angel for us all. Our deepest condolences, - The Jack Ballard Family
