    David was a member of the Indianapolis Police Department. Shot and killed when making a traffic stop. RIP David.
    Yes, David was a wrestler as well and I knew his parents too (great people). His dad, also a police officer, was our photographer in HS. I have some photos in the attic somewhere that he gave me. They lived in Wanamaker in your neck of the woods. We use to hang out there sometimes during the summer.

    David was a year below me and we used to give him crap because it was his hold that called back the winning TD in our sectional loss my senior year. He was our backup tackle at the time not getting too much PT...so we’d mess with him asking who put him in anyways. Lol...all in good fun and he went on to get his ring the following year.

      His mom was also a policeman. I think they're both retired now. I know Spencer has been for a few years. Now that you mentioned it, I remember Spencer taking a lot of wrestling pics. They lived on S. Franklin Road a couple of miles outside of what is considered Wanamaker. They sold that house about a year after David was murdered.

                      I thought he had already passed. He did a ton of movies and TV.

                        • I grew up listening to the "Oldies," it's all my parents played in the in the car back in the 80s. For the life of me I couldn't think of any of their hits, although the band's name was familiar.

                            • Just watched him in a Triple Cross the other day. Nice long career. RIP!

                              • I watched The Sound Of Music with my 9-year-old this past summer. Plummer was a fine actor. Not particularly common knowledge, but during filming of the movie, he and Charmian Carr who played oldest daughter Liesl, were having an affair. She was playing a 16-year-old and he her 40+ year old dad. In reality she was 22 and he was only 35. Both adults, but odd to be boinking your movie daughter.

                                Winners see success and want to climb up to its level. Losers see success and want to drag it down to their own.
