So sorry to hear of "Little Luke's" passing. He was a friend to many including my dad, back to the old CB radio days which is when I met him. I might have been 8 years old then? Later, we crossed paths many a morning when he was getting his paper and I on my way to work. Very simply put, Dave is one of those fixture people of the county and the town of Liberty. He is and will continue to be sorely missed.
