Dave and I had a lot of plans for fun in retirement. Of course, we had a lot of fun prior to his leaving for a better place, but it hurts none the less not just because we didn't get to do all of them, but because he was chosen to leave so early. I have known Dave for nearly 20 years watching our kids grow up playing soccer, playing golf, traveling on vacations, or just hanging out after eating one of my wife's great meals. We shared a ton of the same values having both grown up with similar backgrounds, we even played the same position in high school - middle linebacker. Dave was always looking to fix or do something for everybody. He was one of my best friends and I will be missing him. One of the last things he did in his life was to come back to the Catholic Church - not an easy decision and I told him I was proud that he did. Dave was a "Helicopter Dad" before the term was even recognized - however he managed to do it in a way that created three great independent kids. Dave was an outgoing, kind, thoughtful, and fun guy to be around. For those in Dave's family especially Andrea who I know Dave loved and adored - please accept my deepest sympathy on your loss.

"Farewell. God knows when we shall meet again." - W. S.

Dave and I were good friends at Embry-Riddle in Prescott. As often happens, we lost touch after graduation but I kept up with him, his family, his flying through our mutual friends. Dave was a great guy and he’s left me with some great memories that I’ll cherish the rest of my days. May God comfort your family.

We grew up a couple of blocks away from each other. I have lots of childhood memories of bike races, sledding, and back yard football games, and a couple of playground fist fights. Dave was the toughest, most fit person I knew growing up. A couple of year ago, my wife and I were delivering a bus out to Las Vegas. Dave asked to meet us for dinner, but time got away from me, and I missed the opportunity, I figured there'd always be another occasion, but sadly, there won't . Deepest condolences to all his family and loved ones.
