Rita, David, Donna and Deborah, so sorry to hear about Dave's passing, but so many great memories of a lovely husband, dad, and friend to so many. As a young boy, I think back of the lovely and funny times when Dave and Rita would visit my mom and dad, and spending time down the Cape. As kids we always looked up to and respected Dave being a fire fighter and war veteran. I am sorry I was not able to make the services. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you all, move forward with the lovely memories of the past and please know he is with some very special company up there, I am sure he was welcomed with open arms.

Dear Auntie Rita, Donna, Deb, David and their families. My love and spirit are with you all. You all know how much my Uncle Dave meant to me. I know he's at peace and not in pain. He was my memory that reopened my mind to those beautiful memories I had of all of you. I'm so grateful to have experience his unconditional love, conversation with him, his sense of humor, his hugs and that smile. I'm proud and thankful of his service in the military and as a Fireman. I love you my Uncle Dave ♥️🌹

I am very sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. He was such a nice, pleasant guy. I can picture him and Rita dressed for a Halloween party and stopping by our house with Tony and Ninae.
