To the family of David " Krugar " Gorack, our Sincere Condolences to the entire Gorack family at this difficult time, We grew up with Krugar he was like our brother, he always had a smile on his face! he'd always make you laugh! I moved with my family way up north in N.Y. state 36 yrs ago, I haven't seen or spoke to Krugar since, but my brother Vinnie and I would speak of him quite often, always chuckling, I'm so sorry that I never took the time to look him up with Vinnie whenever I was in T'ville. If there is a heaven, I'm sure Krugar is there, with a smile on his face! Sincerely, George and Vinnie Pawlowski

I am high school classmate of David's and am saddened to learn of his passing. I was not aware that he was such a warrior.
