In Honor of David on his 55th. Birthday

    David attended Moss School all of his 12 years and graduated in 1966. He attended East Central University in Ada and graduated in 1970 with a bachelors degree in science. After graduating, he went to work for the Department of Energy and lived in Kansas City, Kansas for a number of years before being transferred back to Oklahoma where his office was located at 50 Penn Place in Oklahoma City.  
     During the Reagan administration, he was transferred to the Department of Housing and Urban Development at the Alfred P. Murrah building.  He worked with the native American program, which he truly loved.  He traveled a great deal from Alaska, Hawaii and all of the lower U.S. states. He began as an accountant and then worked helping the native American's obtain community centers, etc..   A plaque honoring David for his involvement is at the Sac & Fox Tribal Community Center at Stroud, Oklahoma.
      He was a great supporter of Moss School, attending the alumni banquets and giving money freely to support anything they were involved in.  His H.U.D. family would laugh at him because he wouldn't take off from work for any reason, EXCEPT a Moss ballgame, basketball, softball, baseball or even livestock shows that his niece and nephew were in and then he would come back to work and that's all he talked about!
   
David is truly missed by his family & friends but his memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew him. So with these pages we give tribute and honor to his life and memory.  Like the rose that is crushed. . . . . David's life leaves behind a strong fragrance of the beauty of a life lived for others.
