Sorry to hear about the passing of Dave. I met Dave back in 1983, when I worked at the WVARNG, 146th Med Det (AA) Parkersburg. Dave had no strangers, he made me feel welcome at the Flight Facility. He was an outstanding Huey Pilot. Dave will be truly missed by the West Virginia Army National Guard family. I will be praying you; the family. Again, Dave will be truly missed.
