As a business partner and friend of my dad, Barry for 20+ years, Dave was a part of my life growing up. Fond memories of McDonough & B&D Tire... Dave let my poke around the garage as a little kid, taught me many auto repair skills and was a world class ball-buster! He was kind, funny and super tolerant of me, my brother Cameron and our friends, who were regular visitors and employees at B&D.
Great guy! RIP Dave
