I was very fortunate to have two fathers in my life one by birthright and the other by marriage. Dave was not only my father in-law but above all he was my friend who just happened to be my wife’s father. His legacy lives on and his spirit will always be within the memories we all shared with him. Rest In Peace my friend,
