My condolences to my nieces and nephews. Dave (your Father), was an amazing person. He was a very methodical person. He had to know, what made things tick and because of this, he could fix almost anything. He worked with me at The Ohio Bell Telephone Company and was a true friend and mentor, to all who knew him or came in contact with him. I will always, remember, his jolly laugh and big grin. RIP Dave, you will truly be missed.
