Dave was a big man, with an even bigger heart who’s whole life was focused on his family. His presence and influence will continue to pour down through the generations in memories and spirit. A man whom will never be forgotten, the lessons he passed on will remain with us, the love he showered us with will not fade, and his guiding light will always show us the way. He will be deeply missed although he will never be far from any of us. A smile from him is always just a memory away.
