    I’m deeply sadden by David’s passing. He was a good and business associate on whom you could always depend. Always a hard worker, and always looking to improve things – that it’s how I will fondly remember David.

    Prayers for his family and friends.

    David and I started together at XPO (New Breed) on the same day back in March of 2006. Being on the same startup project, there were times we literally worked shoulder to shoulder getting this site operational. David was a great guy and an excellent business analyst. His spirit, his enthusiasm, and his dedication will be sorely missed. I consider myself fortunate to have know and worked with David.

    Our prayers go out for his family, friends, and co-workers.

    It is sad to hear of David’s passing. It is poignant to me that I never knew of his fondness for salsa. I do fondly remember working with and learning from him. He was one among the few who always knew exactly what he was talking about but still appreciated others’ contributions. On conference calls, he was the ‘loud’ one and I was the ‘quiet’ one and this disparity caused many in the complaint to have to ‘ride the volume’ which made quite a few of us laugh. He was smart and funny and intriguing. RIP

  • Matt Pendergast says:

    I had the pleasure of working with David as a Boeing customer on the recieving of New Breed / XPO Logistics services. The beginning of that project was very chaotic and stress filled. David calm and polite personality and his contentious and methodical approach was really appreciated. He was such a sweet guy. My heart hoes out to his family. I am so sorry for your loss

  • Douglas Gore says:

    Hearing of David’s loss brought me great sadness. He was a great guy who always went above and beyond in everything he did. He will be missed greatly

  • Lynn Houle says:

    The absence of David’s unique and energetic personality at our office is a void that will not be filled. I’ve never met anyone who put as much care and energy into their work as David did. Yet no matter how busy he was, he always took time to stop by our desks to ask how we were and whether there was anything he could do for us. His thoughtfulness will be missed; I hope we all take a page from his book and carry on his legacy of taking more care to stop and say hello to each other. The XPO BASN Everett office will never be the same. We pray that his family finds peace.

  • Michele Coppotelli Solis says:

We will always remember the love he created between all of us especially during this difficult time. My prayer is that God brings comfort to everyone who loved David.

  • Daniel Callender says:

    I had the pleasure of working with David on many BASN projects over 5 years. He prepared, researched, and executed his work with precision like no other. David was not going to cut corners or leave something to chance. He ensured the end product would meet if not exceed what was expected. He will surely be missed. Prayers sent to family and friends for comfort in this difficult time.

    Our family has been, and will forever be impacted by the loss of our cousin David. Our vision of him remains of a young man full of life and laughter, perhaps sitting by the campfire with friends and family enjoying each other’s company and the bonds that hold us together.

    I was his classmate; could not claim know David well, but I well remember his wide eyes and his affable nature.

    Glad to see he loved and was loved.

  • Debra Fox says:

    David was that rare individual who, when he called asking for help, had already diagnosed the problem and just needed us to run a routine to the database to fix it. I’ll never forget his cheerful nature and how he always seemed to be delighted to work with me. I know he was a delight to work with and he will be sorely missed.

  • David Nguyen says:

    I’m heartbroken to heart David passed away. I had the honor of being his roommate for 2 years. He was a fun, caring, awesome neat freak roommate.

    I’m so sad to hear he is gone. 🙁 thinking of his family and his sister whom I met a while back. *Big hugs*

  • Shane Timothy says:

    David, We spent years together as roommates and traveled around the world meeting up with each other. Hundreds of bike rides many times in the middle of the night racing downhill to the Seattle Bay and back. You helped me in ways that nobody else has ever. Helping me start my first IT company which put me on the map and even going to Burning Man for the first time together.

    It was I who actually introduced you to salsa dancing we did it to meet girls but you were always way better than I was a natural talent for you! We laughed about so many things it was always like a Threes Company episode in our apartment. Having you as my roomate was ma y of the best times in my life I will never forget! I owe so much of my success in my start ups to you it would of never happened without you. I also owe a HUGE thank you to you for allowing me to say that I had a real best friend in my life you were always there for me always!!!

    I am confused, heartbroken, empty I cannot believe this happened to you. You deserved everything in life that was pure you deserved a lomg life for all of your kindness. I have missed you badly buddy I want to say thank you for all of your loya, kind, funny times, adventure I want to thank you for sharing life with me.

    You are the best friend that I have ever had and if you are still around us please look after me will you please…
