It is my deepest regret to learn that Mr David Tartt passed away. He will be be truly missed. He was the kindest, lovely and positive person anyone could’ve had in their life. He was my Supervisor at the USACOE from 1994 to 2008. He was family. My grandson RiJhaun Maxwell and Mr Tartt had a special bond on the first time they met. Me Tartt called my grandson his adopted grandson.
