- Debbie and I are saddened deeply to hear of this great loss. In the 1980s David was a part of L.I.F.E. Youth in Quincy where I was the youth pastor. David was a special teenager. We greatly enjoyed him being in the group. It was a treat when he got to visit us once in Kentucky when he drove a big rig and was passing through Louisville area. Now Debbie and I are serving a long term assignment for youth in Guatemala but we still have awesome memories of those LIFE days in Illinois.
