Wishing you Peace and Comfort. I worked with Dave at EB and my favorite memory of Dave was a picnic by Gardner’s Lake and his big welcoming smile. Thank you for sharing your family photos with us. I am sorry for your loss.

So sorry to hear about Dave. Tricia and I extend our deepest sympathy to Esther and all of Dave's family. Dave and I worked together at EB in the early 1990s. He was a pleasure to work with: professional, hardworking, very competent, and most of all, humorous and personable. He will be missed. God bless him.
