My earliest memory of Uncle Dave is from June 1973. It was the month of my 4th birthday, and we were at Table Rock Lake. This was one of his favorite places to go fishing. He is 27 years old in this picture. He was talking to me about the birds and asking me if I wanted to go fishing. We did go out in a boat later. I'll always remember ( a few years later) when he used to visit our house. We played Uno after dinner, and he even let me sit on his lap once in awhile. I always told him that he was my favorite uncle.

I have fond memories of Uncle Dave stopping by our house in St.Louis when I was very young as he was heading to Table Rock to fish. I always enjoyed him carrying me on his shoulders. He is missed. God bless -Janice
