    My sincere condolences to the family. David was my age and my favorite memory of him was climbing the side rails of the incline by grandma Matuszaks house. We were very young at the time. Too young to realize the danger. I also remember running in between Aunt Clara's house and next door. We got reprimanded a lot but we had fun. That was many, many years ago. RIP David. 🙏
