David worked at Perdue Woodworks for appx. 30 years. I’ve known him for 29 years as I worked there also. He was a very nice man, always liked to visit. He was so eager to show photos about his travels. It’s a shame that his life ended so soon. He had saved up to live a much longer life!
Condolences to his family. God bless you all!
