David loved huntin' at the cabin and runnin' a jug line for big ole catfish. He adored his grandchildren but we all knew his favorite was his wife’s dog, Missy. He had been known to share his ice cream with her and use the same spoon. He was a soft hearted teddy bear who would have given you the shirt off of his back.
