Dave was a good friend and a valuable asset to Naval Aviation. His talent and dedication made him the go-to guy to solve many production and technical challenges and keep the fleet flying.
He'll be missed greatly, but remembered often and fondly.
Deepest sympathies to his family from GE and Traincroft.

Dave, it took me a long time to write this because it is hard to believe you are gone. I had known you and Cindy my entire adult life and we all have spent countless hours together laughing, talking, and just enjoying other company. I will miss us annoying Scott and Cindy with your bread dogs and my bubble blowing while at dinner. I will miss your weird sense of humor that matches mine. Generally I will miss you! Cindy, Lacey and Nikki, I will alway be here for you..and will always have my love

I had the pleasure to work with Dave for over 15 years at FRCSE. He was always very helpful, knowledgeable and the man to go to for computer problems. He will be greatly missed and hard to replace. Rest In Peace Chief.

I met Dave years ago when our company won the contract for the F404 program. Dave was always willing to go the extra mile to help with problems that arose. I will so miss his smile and his sense of humor!
My job will never be the same as there will always be a void!
I miss you already!
God speed

Dave was a Great Co-worker & Friend. Dave came into my F404 Aircraft Shop as a Contractor (Production Controller) we worked side by side for four years. He had lots of knowledge & wisdom about computer, cars aircraft parts ,etc. Once Dave learn the position as a( PC) he took over the shop and updated my filing system and programs. Great mentor. Dave was the Best Contractor I ever work with. Sadly he passed on my Birthday. FRC Friends & co-worker waited until 23rd to tell me sad news about Dave. Dave was a Wonderful Person & Friend that I’ll never Forget. My thought & prayer are with the Family.
