Dave was a very good neighbor and friend. We moved here in 2005. My kids grew up visiting Mr Dave and playing basketball in the cul-de-sac at Dave’s goal. Dave always said that warmed his heart to watch the kids play. As years passed he always asked about our kids. Dave was a good man with a big heart. He is now pain free and resting in peace.
