David

​David was born in 1974 and became an interesting, happy, smart, and fun guy who grew to be six foot tall with reddish-blond hair and big brown eyes.  He loved playing and watching sports, music, movies, playing chess and cards, and living life.  After graduating from high school, David studied English Literature and Philosophy at the local community college.  He became an avid reader, a philosophy buff, and somewhat of an existentialist mixed with Buddhist. He was also a self-professed “bit of a bad-boy” who didn’t want to conform to society’s expectations. 

 

Dave wanted to travel and experience new places, meet new people, and learn new things.  He was full of ideas and thoughts and loved to engage in thought-provoking conversations.  Dave always had a story to tell and hoped to be a published author someday.  But that day never came.  In his mid-20s, David tried heroin and loved it.  He chased the feeling it gave him for the rest of his life.  In 2014, David lost his battle with addiction.  The Last Stop is the story of David’s addiction and how heroin stole his ambition and lust for life.
