Some people enter our lives, and pass through with barely a thought! But, some come into our lives, stay a while, and leave us with so much for which to be greatful, that we are never, ever the same.
Dave was THAT kind of man!
Thank you Dave, for being my friend! You will not be forgotren!

May your soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace...............

So many memories, from the motorcycle races to you and Chuck playing and coaching hockey. I'm so glad you got to come down to Florida and stay with us. You will be missed but be forever in our hearts. Karen, Jason and Jessica our prayers and thoughts are with you. Chuck and "Sam"

Dave, what a shock! Appreciated all the work you put into Detroit Archers, including your wisdom which was used in the revision of the By-Laws.

Always a smile and helpful suggestions for us less talented archers. If there is a heaven and you have a choice you will be the main man to set up a Tough Man Course.

I can't even begin to express how much I am going to miss you! You were everything a girl could want in a Dad. Thank you for teaching me to play hockey, fish, drive a car, mow lawns, shoot a bow and arrow, waterski, horseback ride, and live life to the fullest. You showed me how to work hard and play harder. You have ALWAYS been one of my best friends and I will never be able to replace you. I feel you watching over me now just like you have since I was born. Thank you for making me the person I am today. I will love you forever and your spirit will continue on through your grandchildren.
Your loving daughter.

Wonderful pictures. Why do such incredibly attractive men cover up their handsome faces with a beard? Wow, what a looker! You can see in his face how much David enjoyed those moments. They give me the impression he enjoyed his life between those special memories as well. I hope that is true. I am glad the family was near his side to say goodbye. Jess, you honored him well, you did good.
