I don't honestly know whether he did or did not, however, A. it's really none of your business and B. it's not how he died, so what does it matter?

I was just asking a question! I knw how people start rumors in marion & west memphis and all I was doing was looking for truth in the rumor. I heard he died from HIV. I was a really good friend to him and never heard anything about it. So I was just asking.

You were a "really good friend" to him, yet you "heard" he died from HIV? Doesn't sound like a "good friend" to me. I'm sorry, but anyone who's a good friend to anyone, will know what's going on with them. Otherwise you're an aquaintance who's merely being nosey.

Good friend, or not, either way if he did or didn't have HIV shouldn't even be your concern. If you're such a good friend, how about contacting someone close to him and give your condolences and stop adding fuel to a firestorm of rumors.

Nothing to be shocked about, it's just one of those things he probably didn't want to whole community to know, but hey, he's dead now right, let's chat about it on topix!

Seriously? Let it go.

First of all, I just have one thing to say. I DO NOT CARE HOW DAVID DIED. The undeniable fact is that a absolutly radient, funny, bubbly person, is gone. If there was something like that, that he and his family decided to keep secret, then who the hell are we to ask, comment, or question. It doesn't matter. I don't want to know because I would feel no different. I have never felt the need to say anything on this website before today. Hopefully I never will again. David was a really sweet person, and he will be missed by all of his TRUE close friends. I can only say that what little time I got to spend with him was SOOOOO much fun, but then again that was just David. To those of you who are in mourning for the loss of your friend. It get's easier. Not better, but easier.

He had a wreck 3 years ago and suffered severe brain damage, he's been in a wheel chair and unable to walk or talk since the accident. His body basically gave out on him. He did not have a heart attack or HIV.

I am reporting this so it gets taken down. David Ray was one of my best friends. He did NOT die of HIV nor a Heart attack. He had sever brain damage and had to live in a nursing home for awhile until shortly before he died. How he died was tragic not because it was hiv or anything like that but because David had been a man so full of life. Anyone who knew David was blessed because he was truly a unique and wonderful person. I am so honored to have known him and cherish the memories I have with him. Please just let him rest in peace. Is that so much to ask?

Yes I miss David so much! We hung out and went to the movies together! I remember his laugh and how he could make you feel great on one of your worst days! We and all of our friends had a great time hanging out and being goofy! He will never be forgotten!

David was my best friend.
I still consider him to be my best friend, even though he isn't physically here with us anymore.
His laugh was infectious (in the most positive way).
Things like this post is one of the reasons I'm happy I don't live in Wm or marion anymore.
Too many rumors and people talking out of the side of their faces.
David was a remarkable person and I don't believe there is one person alive today who could have anything negative to say about him.
I miss him daily, as I'm sure many people do.
So I beg of you guys to please stop spreading rumors.
He did not have HIV nor did he have a heart attack.
He was hit by a semi truck, it caused him to have a traumatic brain injury that persisted for 3 years, and that is what caused his death.
I'll ways have the fondest memories of my best friend.....
Rest in paradise my brother
