The HPD just released that they are looking for a 2006 chevrolet express cutaway truck red in color black flat bed behind the cab and yellow lights on top with front end damage to the headlights and passenger mirror broken, this truck could also be a GMC Sahara. As they are the same vehicle. I believe this truck to be used for some kind of business and not a everyday family type vehicle

My heart aches for all of you. Destiny and Candy will forever miss the relationship with their Bubby. David, Susanne, and Crystal will always hurt, and miss their son. All of the rest of us will have to support each other, and take his memory and live by the example he set. David Wayne, or Lil' David as I knew him, lived the kind of life, that we all strive to live. The wonderfully fond memories, and positive impact on everyone's lives will forever be his Greatest legacy.

To all our friends and family we thank you for your prayers and wishes. We buried David on Saturday and both of his services went great here and in Hawaii to all our people on the island MAHALO.

The police have a suspect in custody but not enough evidence for a charge yet. We will just wait and let them do their job.

Thank you citizens of Oahu for your help and prayers in this case

God Bless your family in this time.
Please hang in there.

David Sr., your temperance and bravery in the follow up days after David's passing have been very inspirational. You have been patient supportive of HPD in their process to locate the driver and allow due process. We have learned humilty from a great example of your faith and patience. I am so very sorry you have lost your son. My prayers are will you all.
Thank you, Sir, for your service to our country. Aloha.

HEY BOY!!! BOY! BOY? Lord God please where is my son? He was so good to us here that I guess you just needed to have him yourself. I won't talk to badly of the driver because I know you will deal with him. To all my family posting here near and far I know David loved us all!!!! We all loved him, we will put our differences aside and focus on the love we had for him. He is greatly missed by all, he was a pillar in our community and I can't believe that this would ever happen to him, his good grace and social character taught me much during his short life. Davey, I Love you

David I just cried when I heard the news. I know we've been miles apart since your Uncle LeRoy and I have divorced but you and your family will forever be bonded to mine. I wasn't surprised to hear and read that you are being so forgiven to the person who took your son's life. I will forever be proud of you. I commend you for your strength and your upbringing. I'll never forget the day you went into the Army. We fed you bananas , milkshakes and pancakes to get your weight increased. My brother Ted always called you bones. I call you my newphew still and I call you family. May God be with you and give you the strength to see this through. My door is always open.

Love
