the military and country. He was a devoted father and husband. An avid Aggie, there was no one more passionate in their following of A&M sports. His greatest joy in life was to watch and coach his children in all of their activities, never missing a game or
event. David made a significant impact on every child he coached and every person he met. His first priority was to always put his family first and do whatever he could to make their lives happier. David's favorite place to be was sitting on the porch at Lake
