Dave you were a great man. You know you were and still are loved as you can see as you look down from above. God and you will watch over your children. I laugh to myself as I remember the pact we made to each other years ago. I never let go of that. You will be missed Dave. God bless your family to help them through.....your parents and your children.

Not a day will pass that all of Dave's friends and family won't think of him. He was an amazing person who brighten all of our lives. His beautiful children remain in my prayers now and always.

If it isn't prying, what did he die from?

Dave you were a great guy, a valued friend, wonderful father and a VERY under appreciated husband. you gave so much and didn't ask for anything in return. so sad to see you go, you will be sorely missed by ALL! my heart is heavy with sadness and will be for some time as i think about our times spent together as we all grew to be men. but it is the smile you always had on your face that will put a smile on mine even when my eyes are filled with tears. i miss you buddy...for now, watch over us all ...more
