Have known Dave since his days on the "Pokey" Fire Department and our arson association. Then I often talked with him at IDFPR. He was very knowledgeable. Sadly missed.

I talked once to Carol while Dave was o extended sick leave. She seemed to be very caring.

Carol and family,

I am deeply saddened by the news of Dave's passing. Having recently lost my mom to cancer, I completely understand what you are feeling at this time. May you find strength in the Lord during this time of sorrow. Dave fought this battle for such a long time, hopefully you will find comfort in the fact that he is no longer in pain. He has been and will continue to be sadly missed here in Accounts Receivable. Please let me know if you need anything. Sincerely,
