May all be warmed through their memories of David, as that is how we can keep his legacy alive. He spoke so fondly of his family, spent great times with his friends, and was a loving person. David attended our wedding ten years ago and he danced the entire day. His smile and kindness were so welcoming that even the stillest wall flower joined him on the floor. The peach cake he made during my chemo treatments will always be more than just a cake to me. I begged for another every time I saw him. He simply gave me a hug and said "I'm glad you enjoyed it." Truth be told David, I would rather have you with us, just a bit longer, but you are at rest and with peace in all ways. It is my deepest desire that you know how much you are loved and cherished by your friends and family. Your sudden departure left us numb, and until we see one another again at the races in heaven, we honor you in all ways - as the memories will carry us forward. Hugs my friend, may you now dance on clouds.

I did not know your son. I simply live in Huntley, IL about a mile from where the accident occurred. I just wanted to offer my condolences and say that I’m sorry for your loss. May time heal any sadness you feel.

To Dave's family and friends,
Though my words can do little, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
I am also from Monroe, CT and knew Dave from school and being friends with the Stepney Volunteer Fire Department crew. I have kept in contact with Dave through the years, and I will cherish the memories.

August 27, 2016...that is the day I met Dave. My husband, Jeff, Dave and Rodney were three United coworkers going to a Bears' pre-season game, courtesy of United. For some reason, there was a 4th ticket available and I got to go. It was a great day (even though the Bears lost). I finally got to meet the man that Jeff talked about from work. Dave was fun, funny, kind and caring. You couldn't help but become a better person when you knew Dave. I only knew Dave a short time but I know I am blessed and a better person for it. He will be missed but I know heaven rejoiced when they welcomed him home.
