David was always willing to lend a helping hand to assist anyone in need. He was a gentle, caring man, with a compassionate, loving heart.

His hopes were to purchase a home at the Lake of the Ozarks, so he could spend his retirement days golfing. He loved the outdoors and animals, especially dogs. He enjoyed spending time and taking walks with his Siberian Husky, Bella, who adored him.

Mr. Sanson is survived by his beloved wife of 24 years, Cynthia (Cindy) Sanson, his father Raymond (Brenda Eckert) Sanson, his mother Sandra Toll, his mother-in-law Patricia Pieper, his sister Debbie Gastineau, his sister-in-laws Vicki (Mike Tharp) Koehly, Debbi (Craig) Hartley, his brother-in-law Stephen Pieper, his four nieces Chelsea Koehly, Ashley Baker, Lauren Smith, Paige Hartley, his nephew Drew Hartley and his two great nephews, Jakson Polley, Dexter Smith.

I just found out about Dave's passing. I am very saddened by this. He was by far the most easy to deal with car salesperson I have had the experience of doing business with. I have purchased around 15 vehicles and looked at countless others and he was in a completely different class than other sales people.
He will be sorely missed in this world.

Just found out about Dave today. As it goes we were at a winery and met a couple that had a Fiat. They told us the sad news. Dave will be sadly missed by my husband and I. We purchased a Fiat from Dave. He was a no hassle kind of guy. He was warm and caring. I always knew when I went into the dealership to see him I would always get a hug.
We are so sorry for you loss and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
We will miss him.
We have Dave to thank for us meeting the Fiat couple today at the winery, who we became instant friends with. Always looking out for others and making things happen, I totally believe in fate!

I just found out about Dave's passing. I called the dealership today to talk with him about a trade but he's not there. He drove the car I purchased for a while and was very helpful during and after our purchase. I never met him, but we were extremely impressed with the whole process. I'm not sure how he passed, but I would like to send our condolences to the family and appreciation for all of his hard work and dedication. -Schlegels (Owner of 2013 Fiat Turbo)

Dave was our "Fiat Guy" and was wonderful to us as we made our purchase. My Fiat has his signature red stripes and will be a reminder to us always of this kind man. We only learned of Dave's death today and wish to send hugs and prayers to his loved ones.

I recently became aware of Dave's passing. Even though I didn't know Dave very well, I could see his kindness and his honesty in his actions and words. Dave helped me get my Fiat when I thought it was a hopeless cause. He had the confidence that I lacked and for that I am grateful. My hope for you that are left to feel that loss of Dave's passing is that the memories of his life will provide comfort, reflection, and in time joy.

I just heard about the loss. I only really worked with Dave on a professional level (bought a car from him) but he quickly became one of my go-to-guys when it comes to everything Fiat. I am sorry for your loss, and may you find happiness knowing that he helped so many people with their dreams!
