David was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer (melanoma) in Oct 2008 and passed away January 21, 2009.  Although I have only known him just over 5 years, I could not have asked for a better father-in-law.  We continue to love him and cherish what we have learned from him.  He is truly missed by all who had the opportunity of knowing him.  David was not only an amazing father-in-law, but an all-round great person.  He loved life.  He always found a way to see the positive in all things, even right up to the end of his time here on earth.  He raised two wonderful children (one of them, Porter, I am particularly grateful for), and was the greatest grandfather of all-time.  His life had its ups and downs, but he smiled through it all.  We are grateful for his example, for his testimony, and for all that he has taught us.  — David's daughter-in-law, Michelle, Nov 2008
I used to date David early in high school.  I was lucky enough to meet up with him again in 2008 in Kanab.  He had moved from Arizona with his current wife and was building the house of his dreams in Alton, Utah, where his mother was from.  He was full of life and energy, and looked so young and good. I was saddened to learn the following year of his sudden death from cancer.  He was a tribute to: " Life, live it while you can."  — Doris Winkler Scholte

I am writing to extend my deepest sympathies to Davids family and friends. I am saddened to hear about David's passing. I was fortunate to have had the pleasure of knowing David in high school and considered him a good friend. I had the greatest respect for David, he was a kind and gentle soul.

David possessed a generous nature and sharing, he had a remarkable sense of humor, I wish I had not lost touch with him after high school. I have fond memories of David which I shall always cherish.

Good bye David, you will be missed by many...
