Dave is and will be remembered as a kind, loving man who was funny and smart and had amazing life experiences he shared and much insight. Our children only met Dave a few times and were very young when they last saw Uncle Dave and Aunt Phyllis but they remember them both even now...thats how special they were...we will miss him as we still do her.
