    I am so sorry for your loss. David was way too young. Loved getting together with David and the family. He was always so welcoming and had the best stories. Oh, could he tell stories! My last memories of Dave was his asking us all “why can’t I hang out with all the “girl cousins weekend”. We will miss him but will truly treasure our memories of him.

    No words can describe the shock and sadness. So instead we will describe what an amazing man and father Dave (Senior) was. Funny, outgoing, caring, loving, smart…a father who always showed up to his kids sports and was proud. A man who truly loved his wife and family more then anything. He will be missed.
