Sad to read of Dave's passing. I knew him best from our days at Andrew Jackson High. I thank him for those memories and for his dedicated service to our country. May God receive him and may God be with his family.

Lots of thoughts and prayers sent your way. So sorry, your dad was way to young to be partying in the sky.

Dave was a great man. He worked as a bailiff in our courtroom when I worked for Judge Day. He was kind, proficient and had a great sense of humor. More than anything, he loved his family. Rest now, condolences for your family's loss.

I remember Dave from Andrew Jackson and though we seldom see those from school, it is sad to hear of Dave's passing away. He was bright and funny in school and a real nice guy, My prayers for his family and friends

Sgt. Zufelt was my supervisor as a bailiff in 2002. I kept up with him over the years and was always glad to hear news from him. I considered him a friend and I am sorry that he has passed. I know he had many health problems and struggled with them. I know he loved fishing and we were always making plans to go fishing but somehow we never got around to it. Sarge you were one of the last greats who cared about your people and supported the truth, even it was not in line with policy. I am going to miss you buddy. For your family I pray for you daily and hope that God is able to relieve the pain so many of us feel in his death.
