His name was Carl David Rittwage!  We knew him as "David". He was born in 1957. He passed away from Hepatitis 'C' on Dec 15, 1996. His family moved into Lakewood, when Dave was going to Harding middle school!  Through a number of medical operations in which 'home schooling' was applied! He managed to get his high school diploma in 1975, but was not able to attend the 'on stage' cerimonies, with the rest of us!  I corresponded with one of his younger brothers today (8/21/2016) & this information came out, for all of you to see!  It was a 2nd liver transplant, that he had recieved, that gave him the hep C!  Gave him 11 years of life, before they laid him to rest!

He lived on the corner of Elmwood & Hilliard; we grew up in a close-knit community.

One of his brothers, Raymond 'Mike', passed away in 2004.
