I was deeply saddened to lean of Dave's passing. I have fond memories working with him at Yarmouth Paint. Not only did we have many laughs, he taught me some life skills when it came to painting.
Dave was a man I was proud to know.

I only knew him for a short while, but his sense of humor kept me laughing, and his gentle voice was great to hear. It's sad that he won't be next door, and I wish Covid hadn't limited visits in what turned out to be his last year.

I worked with Dave back in the 70’s as a painter.
He taught me the ropes as I was just out of high school. His saying of “ How do you like it as far as you’ve been?”, has stayed with me since then.

So sad to hear of Dave’s passing. I will always remember his ready and hearty, if somewhat goofy, laugh. And the garden on Baker St or the ever-present pot of pasta sauce simmering on the stove every tomato season. He was very devoted to Jeannette, and I respected and appreciated him for that. RIP Dave. Thanks for taking such good care of my “other mother”.
