David's passion for the outdoors was evident at an
early age. I fondly remember his first deer at the cabin. He left us with many great memories from deer seasons past. I will remember him in prayer the rest of my life.

My prayers and thoughts are with you through this time of sorow. He was a good friend at Techneglas when I worked with him. He was a special friend who strived to make things better. He would be a friend to everyone. He loved his dog CHANCE. Only the good ones are called first and I guess/know Dave was a good one. Left behind a lot of good memories.

I am so sorry for all of us who have lost a wonderful man in our lives. I feel like part of my soul went with him. He was a very good friend to me and I love him with all my heart. I am missing him so much already. We were always there for each other. He had said that we were bookends for each other.:(
