One of my closest compadres for so many years. One of the most loyal, giving and committed persons ever to grace my life. We did a lot of ministry together and I trust he'll be greatly rewarded for it. I'm so very sad he left but again happy he's gone on for his many blessings ahead of us and I fully expect him to be at the front of the line to greet us when we arrive. God bless all the family and friends he left behind.

Dave was a great guy! He worked very hard every day! He was always on time. I will always remember him counting down the seconds before the bell rang to start or finish break. The other memory is him jogging through the shop.
RIP Dave!

Dave- I’m going to miss your gentle spirit, your calming presence, and that stellar televangelist hair. You will be missed. I hope you’re embarrassing all the other heavenly residents with wanton Speedo sunbathing. Thanks for taking such good care of those you loved.
