Wheelchair Man in Mueller?

Does anyone know anything about the guy who maneuvers his wheelchair down Antone and Tom Miller, making several circuits a day?

I had occasion to speak with him briefly and he seemed like a nice, articulate guy. I assume others have gotten to know him, even briefly...any details? What's his story? Anything we can do to help?

His name is David. I understand he lives in the neighborhood across Anchor. Apparently he was once a very active jogger in the area. He once explained to our nosey grandson what his condition was but I don't recall. I just recall it is a degenerative condition.

Several in the neighborhood have reached out to him. He usually does not want assistance but some have helped him up long inclines. He usually has all the water and supplies he needs. He will be out at all hours of the day or late into the evening.

Our experience has been is like to visit some but not always. He definitely does not like dogs. Nor does he like bushes or other intrusions into the sidewalks.

We just always try to speak and call him by name.

David lives in the JJ Seabrook Neighborhood as I do, and he moderates the neighborhood association's online group. He knows a lot of history about the local neighborhoods, and yes he was a jogger until an accident.

Over the last 10 yrs his physical condition seems to have gotten more challenging. Before Mueller, I lived just across Airport on Crescent and back then he used a walker. The guy certainly has the mentality of an athlete, he is constantly on the go, pushing the limits constantly. Good to know his name and some particulars, thanks.

I met him when I was out running late one night a couple years ago. Thought he might need help getting somewhere. He made it clear he did not.

Walked with him for about a mile and he told me about himself and the history of the area.

Hadn't talked to him for a while up until a few months ago, when his new route included my street.

Really nice guy. Always good for a chat. Never remembered to ask his name in all the times I've talked to him, but now I know it.

Someone asked a long time ago what they could do for the wheelchair man, aka David, well here's your chance. Please vote on this link to modify the bus stop at 3300 MLK and Tillery for wheelchair access. This stop is near David's home and he has tried for many years without success to get Capital
Metro to change the curb so he could get on the bus. I have personally watched him try to get on the bus at that stop, and it was painful for me to watch.

Thank you in advance on behalf of David and other people in wheelchairs who use public transportation.
