    If anyone knows how to get in touch with David’s family, please give them my contact information. David was a friend of mine and we talked pretty regularly. If at all possible I would like to speak to his family.

      I am his oldest daughter, even though not mentioned above. You can reach me at [email protected]

        Too bad you repeatedly refused DNA testing he requested and denounced his entire family on social media.

      If you would truly like to get in touch with his family, those that did not disown him 9 years ago, feel free to contact me anytime. There is a reason someone was not mentioned above! I will get you in touch with anyone you would like. Thank you.

    Trying to find out if David ever told you about his daughter, Heather and his four grandchildren. His other daughter Darla has decided to ignore David’s oldest Daughter and the four children of hers. David and I have know each other since 1975. We had a daughter in August of 1978.
