David A Bates

Birth: Feb. 14, 1976
Death: Sep. 2, 2000

David A. Bates was the son of Larry and Anne M "Frazee" Bates, and the brother of Loren Bates.

He was employed as a manager for Popeye's Chicken.

David was a graduate of Ellicott High School and was a kind and gentle soul.

It was because of that kindness that one night David was murdered by a young man that he let live in his home.

Many of his family and friends miss him very much and can't believe he is gone.. however we are all grateful for the conviction of his killer.

Sometimes it doesn't seem like life is fair.. David had so much going for him; he was very intelligent and appeared on TV for Ellicott High School in face offs against other schools in Intelligence Q & A's.

He was the best friend of my son..and our family still mourns the senselessness of his murder.
