Dave and his Tuesday bingos always made my winter sojourn Tuesdays much more fun and entertaining. He was always kind and hard working. He will be sorely missed, and it won't be the same without him when I return in the Fall. My sincere regrets to his family.

As a snowbird, enjoyed knowing Dave for 8 seasons. He was a fine person who gave much of his time so others could enjoy cards and bingo. A worthy bridge opponent and I will miss him when we return in October.
