Our deepest sympathy to Dave's family and friends! Although I only knew him on the business side, he had a way to make his customers feel as if we were all part of the family. HE instilled that attitude into his family and all of those who worked for him. His kind and gentle heart will be missed greatly by all of those he touched. May we know we will meet again in God's presence on the day we return home!

To the entire family- we hope you know (and will be comforted by) how many others were touched by your dad/poppy. He was a remarkable man who was generous in spirit, kind, and hilarious in his dry witted way! He and Peggy worked their way into our hearts and will always have a cherished place there. To us, he was family. All our thoughts are with you. Judith and David.
