Humberto (Dave) was a loving, caring, and very knowledgeable history and sports enthusiast.

He enjoyed playing bingo and socializing at the Bob Ross Senior Center, eating Huevo Rancheros at Danny’s Cocina, Tommy’s chili burgers in LA and ribs from Harmon’s.

Dave and Isabel enjoyed traveling and cruising and he “almost” completed his bucket list before suffering a serious fall last year.

I worked with Dave during his time in Edgewood. He was a great person to work with and he had the students’ interests at heart. He did not shy away from troublesome situations but rather placed himself in danger in order to keep them safe when needed. I was the counselor at the elementary school that fed his middle school . That is a huge jump in a student’s life and Dave was there to help them make the leap. We both retired and went our separate ways until we met at the Ross center. It was great to see him and catch up on all the comings and goings of mutual friends and students. Please accept my sympathy and know I am praying for you and for him. Thank you for sharing him with us. For some reason ABBA always reminds me of him...
