David and I met at church when we served together for a short time in Evangelism Explosion and shortly after met Tina through a Sunday School Supper Eight gathering at their house. Dave was always a cheerful, friendly and enthusiastic guy.

My prayers are with you all as you grieve his passing and rejoice with you in knowing that he is no longer in pain and is rejoicing with the Lord.

From Air National Guard Logistics Readiness Staff, will miss Mr Sandoval coming downstairs to talk to us about Fire Trucks, and to see if we had any snacks, he was wonderful to work with, always strived to make sure the ANG Fire Departments has the best equipment, facilities and vehicles. Often he would come down not to talk about work but about sports, movies, travel, and of course his beautiful family. We will all miss our Brother, God Bless Sandoval Family

We have lost a beautiful soul❤️❤️. Dave you will greatly missed by anyone who knew you. A memory? I have many great memories. You were the kindest and most generous man I know. I loved how you loved my Grandsons. How you played Nerf Guns with them. I believe you had more Nerf Guns than they did!! I loved going out to dinner with you and Tina. You always told the best stories. Barred Owl will never be the same.
Tina, my condolences to you and your family. Love to all always. God bless.

You don't miss something until it's gone. David would call the office and serenade me when he was bored or someone was in his office. He always asked about my family and "Julie". He wanted to take Chase out every time he came to town. He loved people!! Please know that you are part of a very close family of military and civilian firefighters!! Please let us know if you or your family needs anything. Prayers for you and your family!
