A Turtle’s Tribute:

David was born November 23, 1959 in Jackson, Mississippi. He graduated from LSU with a Bachelors of Science in Business.

David worked in the Airline industry and in Real Estate.

The following are the the lyrics to the Ray Charles 1961 hit “I Can’t Stop Loving You” inwhich Randy Culbreth placed in the Masterpieces Concert Program in March, 1993:

I can’t stop loving you.
I’ve made up my mind.
To live in memories,
Of the lonesome times.

I can’t stop wanting you
It’s useless to say.
So I’ll just live my life,
In dreams of yesterday.

Those happy hours.
That we once knew.
Though long ago,
Still make me blue.

They say that time,
Heals a broken heart.
But time has stood still,
Since we’ve been apart.

I Love You,

He was buried in New Orleans, Louisiana.

At the time of his death, David was survived by his loving spouse, Randy Culbreth; his parents, Aubrey and Toby Bassett; sisters, Liz Bassett and Kathy Bassett Hardy; and brother, Jeff Bassett.
