Renee & Family
I am so sorry for your loss. Dave was such a unique man. He was always smiling and goofing off. He loved his family more than anything in this world. It was a shock to hear he was in the hospital, how can such a young wonderful son, husband, father, grandfather and friend be taken away so soon. My heart goes out to the whole family. I am praying for you renee, to have the strength to continue. I am always here for you!

My whole family is in shock from the news of Dave's passing. Dave and I had to many great adventures to name, but he was always their for me, from being my boss at Britax, to getting me out of being a broker at the bridge (which he knew I hated that job)to come drive with him for silver leaf. We had alot of goals in life and taking trips for quixstar to hanging out at each others houses. You will be missed my dearest friend you and your family will always be in our thoughts and prayers.
