Dave was a great athlete, an even better shortstop. Had the privilege to play softball with he and Rod on the Mana Con Softball Team that won our league one year going undefeated. Dave was a big part of that. I first met Dave when he played football at Boro with brother Rod. Then was reunited on the softball fields. Many Many great memories. Rest in Peace Dave.

From the first time I met Dave I could tell he was a real likeable guy laid back easy-going, great conversations with him because we shared the same interests in sports we could make jokes and laugh and have a great time, he will be missed by alot of Family and Friends ( R I P )

So very sorry to hear of Dave's passing. He was my first cousin, and although I didn't get to see him often, I sure enjoyed it, when I did.
I will forever remember the way that he always made anyone around him smile, and those dog ears he wore one year, when he
came to WV for Thanksgiving. RIP Dave, you will be missed !!
