To Dave's Family,
My deepest sympathy on your loss. I've known Dave as a colleague since 2007. My company provide Engineering and Consulting services to Dave when he was at Forest Labs and later at JLL. I could tell right off the bat he was a good person and was fun to be around. He had a great sense of humor. Two of the best times I remember being with Dave were team building dinners for our project teams in NYC at Keen's Steak House and The Lamb's Club. Dave kept us laughing all night with his sense of humor and stories. We will miss him.

As your brother's college friend, I met you first as the "pesky" little brother. As all our lives moved forward together, I saw you grow into the wonderful, kind, and generous man, son, brother, husband, father, and friend you were. There are so many wonderful memories of the "family" events we shared with you and Linda, usually involving lots of good food, that I cherish. And your smile and laughter. Too soon gone.

The world lost a good man Sunday. II have known Dave for over 40 years and known Linda for even longer. What a wonderful couple, married for 37 years. The firetrucks at their wedding was memorable.
He was always joking making people laugh with his contagious laugh. There were no limits to his humor. He got a hold of one of my police uniforms and wore it to our wedding reception. It was too funny and embarrassing to be mad!
He was an honest man who cherished friends and family. Rest in peace my friend. I pray the Lord will comfort Linda through this difficult time of tragic loss.

Dave,

I first met you because of my best friend, Joy, your sister in law. You were just 12 when you came to Brooklyn to be part of her wedding to Steve. We both joined in the fun of this joyful event that brought together people from different families, different generations and different
Interests.

Over the years we met at similar events. We shared the honor of being Milena’s godparents at her Christening at the Norwegian Seaman’s Church. A quarter century later we danced at her wedding to Rob.

You grew in strength and love through many of life’s struggles and triumphs. You were the source of happiness and fun for everyone you knew. Your love for Linda was very special and I hope that the pain of losing you will be eased by knowing how deeply you loved each other.

The last time we met was on the sad occasion of Joy’s funeral, 12 years ago. It was a very difficult time for everyone and you were a tower of strength.

It is my hope that you will rest in peace and love with Joy and all those who loved you so much.


Love,
Barbara Antonucci

Good bye, ‘little’ brother; you are sorely missed. I’m writing this to you from an ocean away. It seems like we have always had a long-distance relationship. Right from the beginning, it was 10 years that separated us. But maybe that makes the memories of the times we had together that much sweeter: summers at the godparents’ cottage on Caroga Lake as kids; watching the moon landing on a small TV at Aunt Angela’s in Czechoslovakia; my one and only dirt bike lesson through the neighbor’s cow pastures; that Thanksgiving together at Milena and Rob’s place in the Poconos. The list goes on. Those distances, the difference of age, of our temperaments, don’t matter a bit. I always love you. Always loved having you in my life.

Your life has seen some incredible troubles, challenges, hardships. I will always admire the way you met them head-on and seemed to rise above them. I have always been proud of my ‘little’ brother. And I will miss you terribly.

Linda & family. Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Dave was a wonderful guy & I’m glad I got to know him growing up. May he rest easy in the arms of our Lord as he’s reunited with his parents.
