From Syre Elememtary, to Einstein Jr. High, to Shorewood High School. From ski school, to the sports teams we played on together, to living together in California after we left college. It is so hard to believe that you are gone, my friend.....I will look forward to the day when we are together again...

Our family was extremely saddened to hear of David's passing. He will be remembered as such a kind and loving friend, and I smile back on the times we shared when we were young and carefree in California. The Stavigs send our condolences to all the family with much love.
