    I knew David my freshman and sophomore yr at Dunlap Illinois High School for the 2 yrs My family lived there. My path led me to Prineville, Oregon due to my life’s passion for Mustangs. I had several. I also Knew Mary his wife but left Illinois before they were a couple. Dave was in the school plays and a singing performance group; New Horizons. I had that commonality with him. He left me a message at classmates but I just now looked him up. How sad he passed away just a few months before . What I remembered most about him was his laugh. He was very sweet and a fun person. We had lots of good times performing and having fun. I’m just shattered I never got to connect with him and Mary. I’d love to see his photographs. I wish someone that reads this can pass on my condolences to Mary and of course his family.
