Mr. Driever was a wonderful teacher and touched my heart. And I was really sad to find that he won't be at Whitney with us this year, but up in heaven watching over us. I will never forget Mr. Driever.

Mr.Driever was so great, he would always help me with things I did not understand. I wish I could still talk to him . When I heard he passed away 💔😥 I was sad and did not believe it. He was great and sweet.😞 I was in his class for iready. He would still help me with math. I am so sad to know he is truly gone. He was nice to all his students, he was understanding and just the guy you want to be around! Now he is in heaven 😇 with all the other angles. Mr. Driever you will be missed.

My friendship with Dave was one of quality, not quantity.

On my first day of school, I was scared because I was taking over a classroom for a teacher that was well loved. Dave walked right up to me, shook my hand and said, "Hey I'm Dave. Do you have a cat?" I could tell instantly that this was a guy who would change my life; and change my life he did. On days I wanted to quit, he cheered me on. On days that were overwhelming, he would listen to my profanity laced rants and then laugh and tell me, "Damn Ferguson, you kiss your dogs with that mouth?"

His sense of humor was one that had us constantly in stitches in the lunch room. Those were my favorite 40 minutes of the day because we would all sit together as a family. I would talk about AP, my dogs, and baseball. Angela would talk about her dogs and yoga. Dave would talk about snowboarding and getting a dog. We bonded together and at the end of the year he took on the responsibility of becoming my mentor. I was relieved because he was the type of person that could give you tough feedback without it feeling like a personal attack; he was just there to help you be better.

As the school year starts, I will miss my lunch buddy, my teammate, and my mentor but more importantly I will miss my friend.

Thank you Dave for letting me be a part of your life.

My condolences and sympathy go out to all of Dave's family and friends.
So many memories have been flooding my mind these past few days, from our summers spent skateboarding as kids, as well as our summers working together at the Parks Dept. after high school. The time spent in the weight room pushing each other to improve. Camping trips and hiking peaks in the Catskills in waist high snow thinking I wouldn't make it. My first and only trip to Las Vegas.
Dave was great at pushing you out of your comfort zone and getting you to experience new things. He was always there and happy to help when you needed a hand, and was a good friend who will be missed but never forgotten.

Denise and family,

My condolences to you, both families, and friends. Dave was something special. I don't have all that many friends, I'm very introverted, and guarded. But I will always consider Dave one of my friends. His disarming personality and the way he carried himself, you didn't stand a chance if he wanted to be your friend. And I feel lucky to be one of the chosen.
I'm gonna miss you Dave.

Dave will be greatly missed!! I was fortunate enough to work, laugh and learn from him. He enjoyed life and introduced me to a snow level app. As my son and I enjoy snowboarding.
We would share snowboarding stories often.
He was such a gentleman and a good friend.
The world was a better place with him in it. He will always be fondly remembered and forever missed.

To Denise and Family,
I am so very sorry for your loss, Dave was one of many of my favorite teachers to work with and I will never forget his sense of humor and how we would both always joke around especially about our wild facial hair growth, even though he is gone he will always remain with me in my heart.

Love always,

I've heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason,
bringing something we must learn.
And we are led to those who help us most to grow,
If we let them, and we help them in return.
Now, I don't know if I believe that's true,
But I know I'm who I am today, because I knew you.
Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes a sun,
Like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through wood.
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But, because I knew you, I have been changed for good.

I feel Dave is near, though I can't see him.
He is with me, even though he is gone.
He touched my life and will remain in my heart.

To Denise and Family,

David was one of my all time favorite colleagues in the 24 years of my career. He was a complete and total gentleman, kind, funny, inquisitive, a little bit of a rascal, a great friend and he inspired me to live life to the fullest and spend time doing things that bring joy. I will miss him dearly and I am deeply saddened by his passing. I absolutely dread going back to work and not having him there to ask his questions and crack his jokes. I will miss his desk as it was the most orderly and organized desk I've ever seen-definitely a trademark of Dave, which we all loved and liked to rib him about gently. But mostly, I will miss my friend. My heart is extremely heavy. Please know that David is loved and will never be forgotten. May his precious soul rest in sweet peace.
Love, Angela F. Luna and Patricia M. Ianni
