What an honor it was to meet your dad/brother/ grandpa a few years ago when our daughter, Ruth, moved in a few doors away. We all loved seeing how Mr. Dave Wire was an anchor in that neighborhood as he hosted huge annual block parties in his back yard and cooked all the hamburgers & hotdogs! He set up the tents and saw that the yard was mowed. He built relational bridges and invited everyone to make that block a safer and brighter place. I think Ruth said his only requirement was that people leave their guns at home!
Just a couple years ago, Dave honored us by making the drive across town and out to Brownsburg to attend my husband's 50th birthday hymn-sing celebration. What a treasure he was! Now with the Lord, Dave can fully move his arms again and serve & worship alongside his beloved Norma & other loved ones. We want to be like him as long as we live. Well done, good & faithful servant!

Best grandpa ever. I’m going to miss him immensely, but he loved Jesus and I am happy for him that he has moved on to his eternal reward. I look forward to listening to all of his corny jokes again someday ❤️

My prayers are with the entire Wire family every step of the way. Dave has been a part of my familes life for 40 years. It is hard to understand why such good people are taken from us - but find comfort in knowing you all are a special part of such a well-lived life! When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories that will last a life-time. Dave was such a good mentor to me - and my family - Remember that memories are the legacy of love.
You are in my thoughts now and always,
Joanne Stevens
