My thoughts and prayers to the Mattice family. I remember Dave on Pony Farm Road as well, and when he was the owner of Tiny's Inn. Rest in Peace, Dave.

Sincerest condolences to my cousins and all of the Mattice family. My memories of Uncle Dave go back to my very early childhood days on Pony Farm Road, and to as recent as playing poker with him a couple of years ago. Uncle Dave was a good, kind-hearted man who will be missed by many.
May he rest in eternal peace. With sadness, Kim and Paul Nino Family
