David and I were friends in high school. Although I was in the class of '62 we were both members of the trumpet section in the ELHS band. I remember that for extra credit points we would go down to the Salvation Army and play for the homeless folks in the audience. I completely lost track of David after H.S.and did not realize that we had both migrated to the Cleveland area, but I recognized his photo immediately in the obit. Condolences to the family. Sorry to hear of his passing. Jim Baxter
