Dear Joy, Dawn and Linda,
I’m so very sorry to read of David passing. I apologize for not coming to the service. This mailing of my paper is so bad, I just now saw
the obituary.
I’m certain Greg is talking his ear off by now.
And Bob is right there with him.
Much love and prayers for you all.
Love, Vicky

I enjoyed working with Dave all those years at BMU. Even though Dave wasn't a veteran he was always there to help in any way when he was called on to help. Dave tried many hobbies over the years, skydiving, golf, basketball, volleyball, mountain biking, but he always came back to fishing. He will be missed and was taken much too soon. He's up there now patiently teaching someone to cast a fly and listening to Muddy Waters.

David was always helpful to me and my company when he worked at BMU and I will miss him may he rest in peace.

I worked with Dave for many years. He was a great friend and my shooting buddy. We were always looking for bargain ammo and would let the other one know when they found some. He was always there when I needed help at work also. He knew shortcuts on the computer that he would pass along to help me speed up our work load. Rest in peace and save a spot for me in heaven with you.

I have a lifetime of good memories of my sweet son! He was an exceptional person in so many ways. He was so patient and taught me to appreciate life and the blessings God has given me! I guess the one thing I’m most proud of in Dave is that he loved to tell others about his Jesus! What more could a mother want from her child? So, have fun with your favorite friend and Savior, Jesus!I look forward to seeing you again with no more pain! I will always love you and will always be proud of the person God shared with me. Go catch those fish !!

When I think of my brother, “patient teacher” comes to mind immediately. No matter what the subject was, he was always patiently teaching me or someone else—whether it was coaching volleyball, teaching mom to hook up the pop-up camper, or helping me to have the best experience possible on our Current River float trips.

When Dave and I would float and fish the Current River, I think half of the fun for both of us was preparing everything the night before, ensuring we had all we needed and checking off items on our “lists.” We were both list makers—as is Linda.

Dave would patiently teach me how to tie a new hook or lure onto my line, going over and over how to tie those stupid knots. I recently saw a tool on one of the many Facebook ads that will do just that for you. I wished I had that for our trips, but if I had, then I would have missed out on this experience with Dave.

He had zero confidence in my ability to cast, and rightfully so. The evening before a float trip, we would go into his backyard, and he would point to things or areas in the yard for me to “aim” at–like the canoe, or a clump of dandelions, or that green electrical box thing in the back corner of the yard, and yes, he’s probably cringing because I don’t know what that thing is called. 😊

I remember coming home for Daddy’s funeral and seeing all the friends that were there for Dave and how much he was loved and respected in this community. That was so good for my heart. I gained a new respect for him that day. There are so many years I regret that Dave and I were not engaged in each other’s lives. But for the last 15 years or so, we have been friends. I cherish those years and the memories l have. Much love to you, Bubba.

Linda, I am so sorry for your loss. We always enjoyed Dave at therapy. He fixed the shower for me at the therapy pool. Such a nice and gentle soul. Karen Henzi

Lilah loved creating bracelets with Papa Dave out of his fly fishing box. Miya would choose to stay home with papa and share spaghetti o’s instead of heading to China Buffet with Mama and the big girls. Bella enjoyed searching through quarters to complete her 50 States Quarter Book. All the girls would find joy in watching old shows Papa would record for them while spending the night.
He had a special way of finding unique gifts and would spend many hours researching them all.
He was a fighter and loved Jesus. He loved the girls so much.
