Uncle David- what a light on this world. So many fantastic memories- from watching Uncle David get a giant slingshot & launch water balloons into Lake Manistee when I was a little girl to seeing who could get the best pictures of wildlife in Big Sky, shooting skeet for the 1st time or a surprise basketball game and bonfire with our family at the Roof Management airplane hanger, the 1st time I ever tried duck (4 year old me thinking ‘that’s my adventurous uncle!’) and so much wisdom- 2 of my favorite Uncle David quotes - on advice in business ‘I always keep my promises and follow through on what I say I’m going to do’ to reflections on life ‘little kids laughing and running in the house-the best sounds in the world’. Such an inspiration to me and my family- thank you Uncle David, words cannot describe how blessed we have been to have you in our lives-we love you and miss you dearly.

I’m am so sorry about the loss of your Dad, Lisa. He was an amazing man who could brighten any room (just like you!). I feel so grateful to have known him. We had so many fun times and laughs with him throughout ECVB. His spirit lives on through you! Love you.

Pat and family, I am so sorry for David’s passing and your loss!
I’ve known David for many many years, I met him while serving on the Union County Airport Authority, serving as it’s president for about ten years. David and I worked together trying to put together a hangar and a showcase for Roof Management Airplanes on the airport grounds. David and I wanted it to happen, but we’re unable to work it out with the board. David was a very generous man and always gave generously to our Marysville ‘Ride for Kids’, a motorcycle ride that we do every year benefitting the ‘Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’.
We always called each other ‘Cus’ when met, even tho we don’t think we were related. As good a guy as David was I would like to think we were related someplace back up the line.
I would like to visit with family and friends today, but with the COVID getting worse, please accept my Condolences.
David will be missed but not forgotten!

We have known David for 45 years. We tell everyone we know that the most amazing thing about him is that he never changed. His success at Roof Management simply allowed him to positively impact more lives. It was never about power and money. It was always about giving back and paying it forward. The humble, caring, gregarious man we met in 1975 remained true to himself. A devoted husband, father, and grandfather. A devoted friend. A selfless business leader. David was the kindest person we ever met, but do not confuse kindness with weakness. David was also the strongest person we have ever known. “A mighty oak has fallen “, but he planted seeds around the world. This world is a better place because of him!
Our deepest sympathy to our best friend Pat, Christopher, Lisa, Andrea, Bill, Aubrey, Austin, Ellie and Louie. We love you all!

I always looked up to your Dad and just thought he was an amazing person. I just wanted to send a note that I’m thinking about all of you and just wanted to share in the celebration of a great mans life. Much love. Chaps

Dear Pat and the Denman family,
Linda and I were shocked and saddened to hear of Dave's passing. We will cherish the memories we have of Dave. Our friendship goes back to the 70s and 80s, and it began when we were neighbors at the Shadows apartments. From there we became neighbors again, when we also moved to Shady Ridge Drive. Dave and I shared interests in flying and sports cars. I still recall flying with Dave in my Cessna 172 Skyhawk around the Ohio countryside with maybe a stopover at Put-in-Bay. A few years later, we happened to be vacationing on Marco Island FL at the same time as Dave, Pat, Christopher, and Lisa, and we got together for a quick visit. When Dave and Pat moved to Dublin, we would stop by to say Hi from time to time. Dave also stopped in to see us when he visited former neighbors and friends on Shady Ridge Drive. Dave was such a great guy to be around. Pat and family, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
With warm thoughts and care,
Ron and Linda Bayma
