DT was my neighbor in Tree House Apts. for many years. He taught my how to cook cabbage and share a lot of on the porch conversations. I will miss his sense of humor.

One of the sweetest guys I have ever worked with. My prayers and thoughts goes to his daughters. He loved his girls more than anything. He will be missed by many.

He really was a nice cool guy. His birthday is coming up July 3rd it will be really hard for me because he celebrated his b-day for a whole week or a month if he could... I will always love him dearly in my heart. Love you DT - my brother for life...
