I am David"s Dad. I want to express my heartfelt appreciation for the outpouring of love you have shown for my dear son. He has left the building for now, but is at peace. He will always be alive in my heart. Due to health reasons, I am unable to get to Colorado, but am thankful for all you have done.

We are so very sorry for your loss. I'm sure you have noticed that David was a popular guy around here and liked by many. It was always a joy to read his climbing reports, see his photos, and hear stories about him from his climbing partners. He will be missed by many.

I never met your son but his humor always brightened my day and his passion for the outdoors helped me keep my own fire burning.

As devestating as the loss is to all of us it must be nearly unbearable to you. My heartfelt condolences to you.

He was a great man and will be missed.

May God heal your heart and bring you peace. I have never met your son, but I also know his spirit through this web page. I'll never forget his last 14er , I believe is was Elbert. His puple outfit desribes his beautiful soul.
He will always be with us. I bet he is smiling in awe of all the friends he has, but just has never met yet ...... :) we are all connected ...
people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel...

I am sorry for the loss of your son. Like many others, I never met David but felt I knew him through the conversations, stories, and wildly entertaining antics on this site. David was also very helpful to me in providing sound advice and detailed route descriptions for several of my outings. My limited impression of him was of a fun-loving, live life to its fullest, do anything for your friends type of guy. The positive impact that David has had on so many of the people here in Colorado and abroad has become evident over the past few days. I offer my heartfelt condolensces to you and the rest of David's family and friends. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am so sorry for your loss. We are all at a loss here with him gone. He brought so much humor and skill to the website and taught me so much, and as so many have said, I never even knew him personally.

God Bless you and the family. He is missed.

Whatever you did to raise your son you did it right, one day I hope my son can make me as proud as yours has made you and you should be very proud of him. He was more than a friend to us all, he was our guide.

God bless him and your family.

I'm sorry as well. You must have many stories to add and I hope after some time has passed you could share some of them. Your son was a Man in all senses of the word. What a guy and I promise you that he will never be forgotten.
