    Dave’s dry sense of humor and bellowing laugh will be missed. He had a really good heart and was always quick to smile. He made homeroom worth coming to just to hear his comments and wit. I’m sorry for this tragic loss and I know Dave is in a better place. God Bless.

  • Averyl "Avy" Dunn says:

    I hold such great memories of David from all of our days in school together. Our group walks home from Sunrise, sneaking out in Jr. High with all us neighborhood kids, bus rides and carpools…no matter the setting David always made me (and an entire crowd) laugh. I have the BEST memories of him (and my first real “crush” growing up!) Thoughts and prayers are with you Jody, Dave and Erin. Such an unfair loss…
