Today would have been David’s 32nd birthday.
David began going to school at Bracken Christian School in the 8th grade. He had always been quiet and usually had one close friend. While at Bracken his friend list grew and his love for the Lord did as well.
He loved sports but he could not play any contact sports because David had a heart defect. He had to have open heart surgery at 2 weeks of age. In spite of that he flourished. He played softball and was manager for the basketball team. He was very involved in Boy Scouts; he loved sharks, sports and hanging out with his friends, especially with the love of his live. David wanted to be a marine biologist for a while but was also interested in architecture.
On January 31, 2002 David went to be with the Lord. He had a heart arrhythmia while in P.E. He was 18 years old. He has two brothers, Michael and Matthew, and two loving parents, Larry and Mary McNeill.
A memorial pond was placed in loving memory of David by his family and is located in the middle of our courtyard. The pond was financed and built by the science club and Mr. Ross, the maintenance director during that time.
Today we honor David’s life and pray many blessings for the McNeill family. May you feel the Lord’s presence especially today.
