Dave was a great class mate and friend. I had the pleasure of working for his Father, Burns for several years. Dave and I remained friends on social media where he followed and often commented on my fishing exploits. RIP good man. You will be missed by many.

Mary, We are so sorry for your loss. Dave always had a smile on his face. And you could tell how much he loved his family. I remember Mike and Dave would share a beer on a hot summer day when we lived on Bizzell. And he would play a little basketball with Mike and the boys. Such a wonderful man.

Mary I was really sorry to hear about Dave. I’m so glad that I had the pleasure of getting to know both you and Dave. I’ll always have great memories of playing dominoes with the “Rocket Scientist” and many good laughs. May you find comfort in your many great memories.
