David or Cub as we all called him, will be missed greatly by all his family and friends. He will be missed by all his TVA brothers and sisters also.
His friendship to all his co-workers was very special because he always treated them with the greatest of respect, he was always ready to help with any questions or issues. I considered him a very close friend. Im am sure God has a very special place for him in Heaven.

Sorry I was not able to attend today. First time I met Cub he was wearing cowboy boots and starched blue Jean's looking for a job. That was start of our friendship that grew over the years. As ea h year passed we became closer as our friendship an respect grew for each other. I have lost another good friend that we laughed an sometimes cried together. Good trip friend will always love an remember yiu.

Cub, as we all knew him on the job, was an example for a lot of fathers. He and I talked a lot about his children and it was evident he spoke with love, caring and pride. He took pride in his work and had a way of building friendships with coworkers. Heaven has gained a new angel and we are left here with wonderful memories of a friendship with "Mr. Cub." May God bless all of Cub's family. From an old TVA HED friend.

Cub, as most of his fellow workers called, was a wonderful person. He would do anything to help others. Cub was kind, understanding, compassionate and a really great guy. I don't think he ever met a stranger and he treated others in a wonderful Christian way, always believing the best in others. He was a friend to all and leaves so many sad hearts behind. Thanks Cub for all the wonderful memories!
