I went to first grade with Big Dave at St Joseph's in Fullerton. I have many good memories, I'm not sure who got into more trouble him or I. There was one time the Nun's asked him if he understood English, he said "No", they asked then what do you understand, and he said, "Italian". This guy had it going on from the time he was little and made us laugh always. He'll be missed. Blane Massey and family.

I remember walking into Cancun Cantina on one of my first times there with Great Train Robbery and there was big Dave holding his place he had at the end of the outside bar. I hadn't seen him in years but we picked up like it was yesterday and stayed friends until he left us. But he's always in our hearts and memories. To his son, your father was a special person. Keep his memories close and he'll always be with you.

Where do I begin, Dave is my younger cousin. As children we did not see each other for many years but as young adults we reunited and he has been very special to me ever since. Having a love for the same music we hung out together along with Lisa , going to the Perry Inn, The Turf, Cancun Cantina & Malibu's to name a few. One of his favorite bands was Great Train Robbery who we went to see almost every Wednesday night. Everywhere we went everyone knew Dave and loved him and he loved them right back (especially the beer girls at Cancun Cantina, lol). But one of the best thing about Dave was his hugs and anyone who has ever been hugged by him would have to agree. I remember how he always looked great, his hair, his clothes (mostly Hawaiian and Harley shirts), and the smell of his cologne. While he was in the hospital I had the privilege of visiting with him and realizing that you should never ever take life for granted. When I would leave I would tell him I love him and although he could not speak he would mouth I love you too and that I will remember for the rest of my life. I love you with all my heart Dave and until we meet again my Dear Cousin, R.I.P.

Bunch was such a memorable part of my high school years. I recall heading to the beach after graduation. Kevin Boblitz, Keith Yeager, and I piled into Dave's white and black Buick. Loaded the car with beer and headed east. When we arrived, Dave and I fell asleep on the beach to start our stay on the right foot. We each got fried. Thanks Keith and Kevin fo ya hep....... After being evicted from the Plim Plaza ALL YOU CAN EAT smorgasbord, we bought squirt guns. Watching Bunch and Boblitz run around the boardwalk, hiding behind light polls, trash cans and other people caused a crowd to gather watching and laugh at their antics. I can still see Bunch running on tip toes as if he was hiding in the open. You had to be there. For such a big guy, he was very agile.
I can hardly remember a time when I was around Bunch that we weren't laughing and always having a good time.
Rest In Peace Dave.... You will be missed

I remember Dave and my brother hanging out together all the time in school. He was a big teddy bear. I used to follow them everywhere. My heart is sad. Love Heather
