I’m so very sorry for your loss. I met Dave at Bork’s yard in August. He was a funny guy. I actually met him on his 38th wedding anniversary. I think? He had to get home on that Friday night. We ended up hauling herbicide together and became good friends. I will surely miss him and his humor. May God bless and comfort all of you at this time. RIP Dave I’ll miss you ol buddy. Fly high my friend! God Speed

Dave was my best friend. We knew each other since the 70’s. He was a great guy who would do anything for you. The memories I have will stay with me forever. We had some lengthy phone conversations over the years, while he was driving his truck, which we both enjoyed.

He will be missed. My “condolences” to Pat and family.
