  1. Arthur David is survived by his wife, Maria Elena Wells, step daughter, Jersey of the Phillipines, and other step children he loved – PM (Paul) and Shelley; Mary Elizabeth You, David, are loved and mis; Ashley Powell and brothers Cody and Jordan Meisselbaum. He was a gifted musician. He loved making music with friends and family, and oftentimes with strangers. In his travels and truck driving days, I guess you could call him a troubador as when it came to music, there were no strangers. He had a natural mechanical ability where he could figure out how something worked, fix it, put it together again, or create his own. The restoration he did on his 56 Chevys was a joy to him. David first met Jesus Christ in the early 70’s, alone, shut up with the Bible where just in reading the red letters, Christ revealed Himself to David. David searched for truth and righteousness all his life. But the truth of Jesus Christ was never surpassed and his faith and trust in Jesus Christ carried him to the end. You, David, are loved and missed by more than you could know. Aunt Shirley

The ones that stands out most is that I should always place God first and to stand firm on his foundation . You said I should be praising his name on the rooftops ! I don’t think I can get up on any rooftops but David I will do my best to serve him well and proclaim his name to all ! Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior ! The one true God ! Until we meet again . I love you brother.
