I just found out the news,, MY deepest and dearest condolenses to the family, to robert and beth, daves mom, his wife and children.
Dave was a great guy, sadly in life, we sometimes go in different direction for a while, and hopefully when our paths cross again, we have so much fun catching up on things. sadly sometimes firends pass on before that can happen.
dave will be sorely missed.

My dad was a great man whom will always be remembered by his family and friends for sarcastic comebacks and his witty quotes. But most of all he will be remembered as a caring and kind hearted man who would do anything he could for his family and friends.

I knew Dave in high school. I remember him as a very nice guy who had an infectious laugh. May his family remember that laugh when they are missing him.

I had a science class with David in high school. The teacher asked us all our nicknames or what we would like to be called. I remember David said "DJ". I didn't understand why at the time. I thought maybe he wanted to spin records. But now I know why he wanted that nickname.
