I have a lot of great childhood memories with Dave and his family. From the computer games on the commodore to the boat rides at the ozarks we always had fun. He always made me smile and feel like i was family. Happy to have those moments. He will be greatly missed.

Debbie, Dawn and Dustin, I was sad to hear the news of your loss. I have fond memories of your family. Youre in my thoughts and prayers

I had the pleasure to work with David from 83-92 and really enjoyed our time together! He kept us entertained! Thanks for the memories! Larry
