David was a very sweet boy. I am certain he was a wonderful husband and father. My heart goes out to his family. He will be missed.

David was a great friend and compatriot in high school. I will always remember his infectious laugh and positive attitude. It always is sad and sobering to see the passing of a close classmate - a reminder of our own mortality and a reminder that each day is precious and should be enjoyed fully on its own terms. David - your memory is part of each of us lucky enough to have had the opportunity to share our life journeys.

Dave up until now, I didn't know you had left us for a better place. I will never forget you nor I have forgotten you. Even though you were one of the "In Crowd" guys when we were in school, you always had a smile on your face and nice hello for those of us who just weren't at your level. Your friendship meant a lot to me then and I have always carried it with me throughout my life. You're one heck of a guy and I'm sure I speak for so many others when I say you're truly missed and I'll catch you on the rebound buddy.......Love Dennis

I can't believe it's been nearly 15 years since we lost my cousin Dave. They say that time heals all wounds but I'm not sure thats always true. Dave was always like a big brother to me. He and his brother Dennis always made time to hang out with me and my younger brother Carl. I'm not sure many people know this but Dave lost his life trying to avoid driving the construction dump truck he was in through an oncoming car that had turned head-on into his lane of traffic. His selfless act did save those peoples lives, but it cost him his. I think of him often as I'm sure others who knew him do. Like all of our family and friends that have gone before us, we miss them so. Rest in Peace Dave.
