David joined church on March 31, 2019 in Greenville, TX at New J. Nation with Eric Anthony Brown as Pastor. David knew the Bible as well as he knew the Lord. In his final days he called on him and asked for comfort and forgiveness.
David was the first grandchild born to this family and he was always trying to make sure all of us knew it. David loved to cook. He was the family’s barbeque and fish frying man. He even had a name for the restaurant “SKO and Go”. He would say SKO a plate and then go. David was a very happy person. His smile would light up any room. He loved dancing, dominoes, and family time was always a plus. David had a heart of gold and would give you his last dollar if you needed it. He will definitely be missed. He’s “tipping” through Heaven with the biggest smile on his face saying, “Thank you Lord, I’m home.” Rest in Heaven Angel, you earned your wings and crown of gold.
