  1. My heart is sad to hear of your passing Dave. I know we didn’t get to know each other very well growing up but I felt I got to know you a little bit better these past years when seeing you in the hospital each time you were admitted on our floor. Although covid kept me from visiting you the last year and a half with limited visitors, except one time I walked past your room and visited from the hallway. I wish it was under different circumstances though. I hope my visits helped a little. I will miss you!
    Lori & family, I feel your loss. My prayers are with you all! Let me know if I can be of assistance with anything.
    Your cousin,

  2. Dave, we shared many adventures, but now you leave us for the greatest journey of all, I thank the lord above for having graced my life with your presence. You will be missed, my friend.

  3. Dave you were a wonderful man and I knew you were a man that would do anything for anyone. We had some Wonderful talks and I knew that some of that you you wish you could take back but you knew that you had created the harm and couldn’t change or take back when it came to your family but it didn’t mean that it didn’t hurt any less in that you didn’t care you just didn’t know how to make anything better. But accepted it you loved full heartedly and cared about people and you could make something out anything. A true MacGyver n very free spirit and caring soul and you will forever be missed we had some wonderful talks and I know you made a difference in my life and you will forever be missed love you man sleep with the angels.

  4. Such good memories with you my friend. You will always be loved and cherished by me. You left our world far too early.

  5. RIP . Little buddy. We were almost inseparable for many of our teenage years. You were my cohort in crime for many adventures, some of them actually were innocent. Our paths split many years ago, and it appears you took a few wrong turns, but hopefully made some good memories along the way as well.

  6. Dave you are a diamond in the rough. You always made me laugh when I needed it. You took everything like water rolling off the back of a duck and you were always there to help anyone even when you were the one who needed help, but you would never take help from anyone. I love you and will miss you. Kitty
