Davis and I had a long and close relationship at McDonnell Douglas. He leaves fond memories with me.
I wish the best for Martha and family - God Bless You and may God be with you during these rough times.

Dave was a wonderful man and perfect neighbor. Our prayers remain with the entire Parrish family. Snacks and food will continue. (Martha, I will try to cut down on the calories.) Please drop by for coffee, to talk or just need a hug anytime.
I grew up with his son Jeff and I have some fond memories of Dave. I'm going to miss him.

To a fellow Missileer, Warrior and Patriot that paved the way for those of us that followed – Thank-you for your service, sacrifice and patriotism. The United States Air Force and our Country has lost another great hero and leader. May God bless you and comfort your family in their time of grief.
Dave will be missed by many.
Martha, I love you both and hold you dear to my heart. I am sorry I can not be there with you, but will be thinking of you and Dave.
I've known and worked with Dave since the 1980's when I was in the 6555th. Dave provided leadership and insight at a time when we paved the way for Shuttle and new generation expendable launch vehicle payload integration and launch. I consider him a friend and he will be dearly missed. My deepest sympathies to Dave's family and friends.

I worked with Dave at H&R Block for several years. He was always a gentleman. He loved his family, especially his granddaughter. He was a dear, sweet man and will be missed.

I will miss you the rest of my life. You were my friend, confidant and the greatest father a daughter could ever ask for. "I will always look for you!" Though my heart is broken as I try to understand the journies end I want you to know how lucky I was to have you as my father and my daughter to have you as her granpa. You taught us well and you were a gentlemen to the end. I love you, we love you and thank you for being the best part of our lives. C & C

Dave, Was a Classmate, friend and fellow member of Army's football hayday of the late forties. We played C 7B Squad for three years and then the rascal left the Scrubs for the Big Team. It was well deserved as he was a big end and great addition to our Big Rabble! Thanks Dave for a job well done for family and our Country! Gene Mechling
