My Uncle Dave gave me and my family so much love over the years! We have wonderful memories of Dave at many family gatherings in Loveland at Dave and Ginny's home as well as my home in Parker. I will treasure those memories forever. I especially admire the love that he gave to my Aunt Ginny; Dave was an amazing husband, father, and family man. May his soul rest in eternal peace:-)

Much love,
Tania

Dave will always be remembered as one of the best familymen in my book. We had many many conversations which normally were filled with laughter usually about each other's antics. Lol makes me smile thinking back on them.
Rip Dave, you are missed.

So many memories! I looked up to this man. He was so sweet, funny and kind. He loved his family like none other and did for so many! He and my sister, Ginny, invited us to vacation with them for a week in Mexico and we had the BEST TIME EVER!! We will always cherish those memories! Rest easy ❤️
