David wanted to help others. He exemplified the life of servant leadership and devotion to Jesus. His favorite Bible verse was Isaiah 6:8. His legacy was based on his love for The Lord. A Coast Guard Academy graduate and a deck officer in the Merchant Marine for 21 years, David helped others with his service through disaster relief with Samaritan’s Purse and as chaplain with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team. He also served as a chaplain with the Emergency chaplains of Durham, NC. David spent the last 5 months of his life working with the Spartanburg Opportunity Center, a homeless shelter in SC as well as helping with his church.
David was diagnosed with a geoblastoma malforme in February 2019. He never allowed the cancer or the treatments to slow him down. He wanted to be sure that others knew the love of Jesus. David was an organ donor. For his family, knowing that part of David’s eyes were used to help another individual see, is not only a miracle but a blessing. David always saw the best in everyone. We as his family hope that others will see that same “best” in others they encounter.
