Enjoyed working w/Dave @ ODOT in Construction years ago. He would always start thinking about what he wanted for lunch @ 10! He & Dave Eby were Inspectors for Paul Mowen for years. So sorry for your loss .My sincere sympathy to the entire Eyler Familly.

Our sincere sympathy to the Eyler family. When we think of David, we think of casinos, golf (Jon has many stories of golf with David),and he was always laughing about something, love of burnt hamburgers, and his finger pecking when trying to type on the computer!! He was such a nice, easy going guy, and will be missed. So sorry for your loss.

Dave was a great person and one of the best neighbors I have ever had. He treated my brother and I like family and loved our dog Snoopy. He will be truly missed. Sorry for your loss.

My sadness is shared with all the Eylers. Many good memories of fun times spent long ago with Dave growing up through high school. Lots of golfing and goofing around. Many good times spent in the Eyler house on South Barron Street.
