    I was privileged to meet Dave when my daughter Cindi became friends with Eric over 40 years ago. Dave was always there for his family and anyone who wanted a visit, advice, or help. He and Marcia were such a great team. I will miss him. Rest in Peace Dave.

    Jim and I have so many wonderful memories through the years, since junior high school, with Marcia and Dave. We have been reminiscing about our friendship the last couple of weeks and feel we were blessed by it. Dave had a big heart. He was kind and always helpful. We laughed about some of the crazy things we did and teared up a little on seeing him in his last days. We will never forget him💕
