Dave and I had many morning shift change talks during our time together at AT&T. He was a dedicated worker and Bible Believer. I wish we had lived in same area so we could have had more time working projects!

My condolences to the Harsh family. I moved to Kansas City from Georgia back in 2014 and I worked with Dave at AT&T before he retired. He was so helpful to me with learning the job. He will definitely be missed. My prayers for you and the family.

I just heard of Dave’s passing through a mutual friend. I was very saddened by this news. My wife, Betty, and I started with NWB and AT&T in Des Moines. She had first met him there. I ended up working with Dave here in KC. Dave and I had owned Corvettes at different times and had a number of discussions about that. We also talked about Model T’s, diesels and his Piper J-2 Cub. When it came to work, Dave could always be counted on to ‘take care of business’. He is gone too soon. My condolences to family and friends.
