This was a shocker. Dave was/is a wonderful person. Class of 1965, and the planet, lost a good one.

I’ve known Dave since 1970; college days, while Fran.

I’ve never met a more gentle selfless soul. He made time for anyone and everything for others. No task was too burdensome for him. I never saw him raise his voice. He loved his family dearly. He was a Veteran.

I hope as I write this ‘Pinko’ is with our Mother in heaven.

Whenever I would run into Dave, he always took the time to talk and ask about my life. He made me feel like I mattered. His warmth, caring, and his love for his family will always be remembered.
