Dave, Angie and Denise, Sorry to hear of the passing of your father, Dave Sr. I can still see him sitting in the chair in the living room of your old house when we were youngsters. His laugh was uplifting and always treated us kids with love and humor! A terrific man and one who left a lifetime of memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I will keep you and your family in my prayers. David was a neighbor, friend, and fellow sax player. His mom and my mom were friends. David's dad was our 4-H Electric Club advisor. He was couple of years older than me. He had an infectious laugh and I'm sure he'll be missed by all of his family.
