Dave was one of the most intelligent men I’ve ever met. A member of our Wednesday men’s breakfast club, he added value to our many discussions.
When he and Florence did not return to Florida this winter, I feared the worst. Unfortunately, my fears were realized upon hearing of his passing.
Rest In Peace Dave, you’ve left us all with fond memories.
