    Mr. Totino was a kind man. When I was working security at the Church he attended, he would frequently stop and chit chat and always thank me for my service. I also thank him for our service to this nation. I pray that God will comfort his family and provide peace in their hearts.

    Mary, sweet Mary. My heart aches for your loss, for all of us that knew and experienced the strong and gentle man that was David Totino. His was a presence that made you want to be a better person. He loved his family with his whole being and loved his Lord even more. You and the family are in our thoughts and prayers and hope you find peace and strength in the days to come❤️

    Truly a man of God who had time for anyone who had a need. David lived what God’s Word teaches that He wants us to do to honor our Creator; and in so doing, served as an example for all who came into contact with David. I cherish the times when David, Mary, and I spent time in each other’s company; whether in the Lords House, or out in the community.
    Mary, know that we are here for you now and talk to The Father for your peace and well being. In Christian Love, Dennis & Bera Thomas

    I have known David and Mary for many years. David showed me early on through example what love of God and family is all about. Although I have not visited with him in several years, his example stayed with me and helped me to be a better man.
