Our father was talented in many areas of both his professional and personal life. He was intelligent, magnetic, charming, funny, caring and dynamic. Perhaps more than anything he was devoted to his late wife, children, family, and friends. We’ll always remember that special smile, that caring heart and the love we will always have for him. The children of David, would like to thank the town and local businesses of Columbia. “The love and support we have received has been beautiful and deeply appreciated.” They would specifically like to thank Triada Advisors and Tax Services, First National Bank of Waterloo, Accent Title, Lawlor Funeral Home and Crowder & Scoggins Law Offices.
