So many memories of Dave - from riding horses with Jane Ann; my Dad saying Dave should have a car dealership license; remembering Dave sending flowers to Jean when he bought 'another' car! All the times we had together. Dave loved to tease and had a smile that could light up a room. Rest in peace, Dave, you are so well loved!

So sorry to hear about David. I knew him well in school because he always sat behind me in the classroom because we were put in alphabetical order. He would torment me constantly whispering to me from behind. Once I stood up in English class and hit him on the head with my notebook. The English teacher I think Mrs Heidi was amazed but said she understood my reaction to his constant antics. He enjoyed life.

Good ole' Buxton! He always had entertaining stories as well as words of wisdom to share. Met him only a few short years ago, but I am thankful that I did. Thanks for the memories, Dave!

Worked with “Bucky” all the years at 5800 Wolf Creek Pike in Trotwood. We went through all the different names of the Company. No matter what the real name was, we called it Supermet. God’s speed, Friend.

Dave was a dear friend. He always made me laugh and was ready with a wisecrack. We go back to kindergarten days with Mrs Haroon. I will miss his jokes when I visit.
My heart and prayers go out to Jean, David, and Brian.
