Rest in peace Dave. We had so much fun in High School and shared many laughs together. My prayers go out to Stephanie and family.

I was saddened to hear of David's passing. I had the pleasure of knowing David as he was a student of mine in drafting class for 2 years at Central; it was a great joy having him in class and he was a straight A student. The year he took my architectural drawing class, I had my prep period and David had his study hall at the same time. He would get a pass and would come down to my classroom and I always enjoyed his visits and his humor. It was fun having him around! I have remained close friends with his older brother Steven, and was aware of David's battle with multiple myeloma. I know he will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Will be keeping the entire Slamar family in my prayers during this difficult time. -Mike Broderick
