My thoughts and prayers are with Skyler, and all of Dave’s family during this time of loss. Dave was one of my very best friends, and I will miss him dearly. Dave had a personality that touched so many people. He had the biggest, and kindest heart, and was just a big teddy bear. I will miss you every day my friend.

If you knew him, you loved him. Couldn't find a better friend, always giving of himself and his time. Quick with a smile and a laugh. He will forever hold a place in my heart and he is truly missed. All of my love to Stamper (Sky) and the rest of the family. We are so blessed to have had Dave in our lives.
