So very sorry to hear of David's passing. I knew him at TTUHSC through his service with TTPD. He was always a good guy to run into in the halls or in the parking lots and was always in a good mood. His stories of his time in the oil business I will remember most. He was quite the character. He will be missed.May God be with you and your family in this time of grief.

Debbi and family,I met David back in 2010 and we became friends. I had known his brother Billy since I was a teenager because of soccer. I pray for you and the entire Babcock family in these troubling times. David was such an awesome man, person and friend. He would always check on his friends even after retiring from the Texas Tech Police Department, because he had such a giant heart. Do know he will be missed by many and we know your family will definitely miss him a lot. I am so sorry for your loss but I know David is smiling down at this very moment loving his new life and watching over his family from above. Even though Badge #663 is 10-42 at this time, know he is 10-41 above keeping watch over you all. He left here to be a sheepdog in Heaven. David we all love and miss your smiling face and uplifting voice. RIP my good friend, you served well, we will take the watch from here.

David's family will be in my prayers. I knew David since the late 1990's, he worked for Tech while I worked for UMC. He was always helpful, professional and kind. During a huge rainstorm in the late 2000's, my son ran over a median near the 19th and Canton on the Tech campus (the water obscured his view). He called me and I drove up to assist him. When I arrived, David had already been there, helped Michael get his car into a parking garage and helped us decide how to address the flat tire. He was a great friend to many, I am proud to have been one of those, and join all in missing him. Rest In Peace.

I knew David when i worked at Texas Tech HSC when my office was at Thompson Hall. He would always stop by and chat when in the building. He was always so friendly and personable. He would ask about my son who is also an LEO. When I would see him at Tech basketball games in recent years he would always greet me like he had just seen me the day before. He will be greatly missed. I pray God's loving arms hold you and give you peace during your difficult time. I know David is home with his Lord.

I went to school with David, he was in our wedding. David was a great guy, and we had tons of fun growing up. We have not seen each other in year, but we had a lot of good times. I am sorry for your loss, and pray for the family. David and a bunch of us went to Temple Baptist years ago. I am sure he is home with his LORD.

Debbie, we knew your husband from work and had the pleasure of seeing him every now and then walking the halls and checking on everything. I coached volleyball at Tech, and he was always SO nice to our staff and would stop up if he saw us around campus just to say hello or chit chat. He was such a nice man, and ESPECIALLY nice to my children if I had them at work with me. You could tell he loved kids! I was blessed to work with amazing people while at Tech and your husband was one of them. I'm so sorry for your loss and you and your family will be in my prayers. Beth
