In my mind I will always remember the David I knew in the eighties -- a tall gangly kid with a gig cowboy hat with an equally
big smile who shared my love for Hank Williams, Jr. music. Happy Trails, David!

Bob and Sandy and family, I am so sorry for your loss. It has been a while, but David always had time for friendly conversation when we would run into each other in Ukiah. And I will always have very fond memories from growing up spending time with the Lazinkas! I will be thinking of you all. With great sympathy, Bill and family

How I remember the excitement in Laura's voice, when she and Dave first met. I remember her saying what a wonderful man Dave was and she looked forward to another date with him, which lead them to marriage. I am sorry to be so late in saying---my prayers go out to you, Laura; as well as the rest of y'all's big family. David was a great man to my friend and coworker, Laura; and forever now, he will be in the memories I have of seeing he and Laura at Wally World quite often in the past. God Bless you all with love.
