I served in the Air Force with Roscoe back in 965 at Robbins Air Force Base in Georgia. He was a warm and caring man and had a great sense of humor. I am shocked to hear of his passing and he will be missed greatly.

David was the only man who didn't turn his back on me when I made a mistake in my professional career. He counseled me through my trial and tribulation. I don't know if David believed in Jesus but I will tell you he certainly carried me through the time when I truly needed him.
I pray I will see David one day he never judged he only helped. Praise God for David's life.

When I became Director of the North Texas VA Health Care System in 2009, David was the first person to welcome me. From that moment, I knew I had a partner and friend who would do great things for the Veterans we served. I was absolutely right. Dave and I spent the next several years working together to make things better. Dave was a remarkable and generous person. He loved the Veterans we served and he gave so much of his time to help them out. I will never forget him and I will miss his dedication to serve and his great sense of humor ( although he did tell some REALLY bad jokes ). I love this man; the world has lost a true Veteran advocate and we all have lost a great friend. Dave should rest comfortably knowing that he made this world a better place for many people.
