They met in September of 1972, and by October of 1973, were married at the Plattsmouth Methodist Church in Plattsmouth, NE. Mary and Dave took additional coursework in college while working.
Dave had a passion for music of all varieties, and often performed in church, restaurants, and social events.
Dave devoted his time to advocacy and work in the human services sector; he worked as director of Cedar Valley Services in Owatonna for over 30 years. He shared his love of the outdoors, motorcycling, music and travel with friends and family.
