My condolences to you and your family. David was my 2nd cousin. My grandmother Stephanie was David’s mom’s sister. I will keep you all in my prayers.

Condolence from Chandler and Heather Paquette on December 3rd, 2019 5:47 pm

So sorry to you all. Our sympathy goes out to you, especially during the holiday season. David did so much for the citizens of Woodstock, and most of it was never appreciated by the people that were able to travel our roads because of his (and others) hard work and dedication. Be well one and all.
