Such a shock to hear of Dave's passing. Dave was a good friend and someone you could always depend on. We worked together directly for 15 years and Dave was the go-to person for so many areas of expertise. He could be counted on for wisdom and a wry sense of humor. Dave was quite the artist. I actually have one of his sketches in my office to this day. When one of my sons was sick, he provided a sketch of superman to help brighten his day. Dave will be remembered and missed by many.

It was in great sadness of learning of Dave's pasting. I spoke or saw Dave several times a week and went to lunch with him often. I considered Dave not only a great co-worker but even a greater friend. Dave would give you the shirt off his back if needed. We shared many of the same interests and he would laugh at my trials and tribulations of raising 4 sons and some of the things they would do. He would tell me about his cats and I would tell him about my dogs. Dave would share his knowledge about subjects he new more about like the time he convinced me to put $400 in cables for surround sound in my man cave. He was right. In turn he would ask me about things I know how to do, like the time Dave asked me to help him buy a car. We spent the day car shopping and by the end of the day he bought a new car. He was amazed with the deal I was able to get him. We shared a lot of great moments together and I will be always grateful for knowing Dave. I will miss him greatly.

I was deeply saddened to learn of David’s passing. I met him some years ago when I became his hairdresser, and considered him a great friend. I admired his dry humor, his good taste in bourbon, his love of felines, his admiration of a Tarintino movie, and the respect and love he showed his friends and family. My deepest condolences to his family and loved ones, he will be greatly missed.
