Dave was such a great guy! Rock solid, dependable, tell it like it is kind of person who I had the good fortune of being close friends with in grammar and high school. As unfortunately sometimes happens in life, we lost track of each other as we got older and it's probably been forty years since we were in contact. However, I remember with great fondness walking to and from school together, shooting hoops in the alley behind his parents house and cruising around in his Dodge Polara, looking for chicks, never finding any, but having a great time anyway. Also remember having a 50 cents a day allowance and all summer long walking up to McDonalds at 79th and Damen. The 50 cents bought me two 15 cent burgers and a large 15 cent coke. After tax I still had 3 cents for penny candy. Those were the days. It's funny how your remember some very specific little things from the past. I remember being with Dave and grabbing a bite to eat at the restaurant at 87th and Loomis, famous for getting it's roof blown off during the 1967 tornado, but whose name I can't recall at the moment. Anyway, it had those little juke box things at each table and Dave put a quarter in and the rocking sound of the Stones' "Honkytonk Woman" came blaring out and all was right with the world. Without Dave the world won't be quite as right again. Rest in peace my friend, rest in peace.
