The original died in prison of aids. He took part in a murder that was on the news late 80's early 90's.

Did he graduate from Pt. around 1980/1981? Just wondering. I went to school with a guy by that name but never heard him referred to as crazy Dave. I think I recall hearing he got into some kind of trouble years ago & later passed away. In school he was an ok guy. Wonder what happened? Can someone please fill me in on how he plays into all of this? How'd he get involved? I was living away from here during that time.Wasnt he married at one time?

There's another guy around town that's also known as Crazy Dave, his actual name is Dave Smith. He runs a heating/cooling business, drinks all the time, and is really loud and obnoxious! I think he's been bared from every restaurant and bar in town for his outrageous behavior!
i thought he was nice

Crazy Dave used to party with junior siders . They or I should say one or both killed mike Oliver - mike used to live in Henderson .. Dave was a known drug dealer for many years. He went to prison cause he took the entire blame for mikes death .. Some say dav took the blame cause he had cancer.. Some say aids ... Dave was an older man at that time any way.

So Dave wasn't someone who would've graduated around 1980 or 1981? Would've been around 50 now if he'd lived? If that isn't the one, then does anyone remember the one I'm thinking of? Had a wife named Lisa but then divorced years ago. Now she is deceased also. That's the only Dave Lanham I ever knew around here. Would somebody please clear this up for me?

I was a Police Officer in the 70's and 80,s. Crazy Dave Lanham was in and out of jail all during that period. One could say he was the town drunk. The Otis of Point Pleasant. Not a person that anybody would want associated then.

I remember that incident also, but that was crazy Dave Simpson not Lanham. So my original question is still unanswered. So many "Crazy Dave's" around.

Ok. This is the last time I will ask this I promise. Does anyone remember David Lanham who graduated from PPHS in either 1980 or 1981. Was originally married to Lisa Humphrey. RIP. They later divorced & she remarried. Not to bring her into it, but it may jog someone's memory as to who she was, then in turn as to who he is. She was very sweet. After their divorce she lost a leg in a motorcycle accident, happily remarried, had kids, but passed years later due to health issues. Now back to him. I think he had blondish hair & I think I recall something about maybe his parents moving away from here after he graduated. Maybe Florida? Anybody???? Just boggles my mind that someone of the same name from the same town could commit such a heinous crime & nobody even remember the other guy with the exact same name. I always thought it was him. Wow! Anybody at all who is around 50 years old remember who I am referring to? I am stumped.

to Just Wondering........I can clear it up for you, you are talking about Davy Lanham, who yes was married to Lisa and had a son Josh, he then moved to Florida with his parents, Judy and David and lived in Naples where they had a home remodeling business. He has a sister Sheila and now the whole family lives in South Carolina, where Davy is remarried and has other kids.....hope this helps clear it up. The Crazy Dave they are talking about that was suppose to be involved in the murder of Mike Oliver, and David Simpson is the one who was murdered in Huntington years ago !!!
