  4. Dave was well liked by everyone in the shop at Lincoln Fabricating, and he will be sorely missed. We always enjoyed talking to him — what a great guy. Terribly sorry for the family’s sudden loss.

  5. Aunt Kathy and family – we are so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. We could not make it to the funeral home to see you, but wanted you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers at this time.

  6. Dave was a quiet achiever would never cheat in Electronics no matter how much I offered him. He was a man of dry wit and Dutch courage. He helped me with resistors and capacitors and was a patient and gifted diagnostician. Although he went on to the lofty levels of accounting I shall never forget Dave’s grasp and love for all electronic devices. What a genuine guy! Although I haven’t seen him in 20 years we we’re going to catch up at our school reunion in 2 months time. I know he’ll be looking up at us and we’ll have him in our thoughts.

  7. My deepest sympathies. Your family is in our prayers. Dave and I were childhood friend and I have some great memories. I know he will be missed.
