DAVE WAS ONE OF THE NICEST PEOPLE I HAVE EVER MET. HE WAS ALWAYS CHEERFUL AND PLEASANT AND A JOY TO WORK WITH. WE HAD MANY GOOD TIMES TOGETHER AT LILLY.
DAVE WAS A VERY SMART AND VERY PERSONAL COLLEAGUE. I HIRED HIM SOMETIME IN THE LATE '60s AND KNEW HIM WELL UNTIL UNTIL WE RETIRED BUT THEN WE LOST CONTACT.
