Dave was a unique character. He was entertaining. He had opinions and expressed himself. He seemed to help people who needed help. He gave more than he took. We all lost when we lost Dave. God Blessed Us All with Dave, and God Is With Dave and Us All. In his life cut short too soon, he was known by many, and by all will never be forgotten.

You and I used to have a lot of fun together. We sometimes even did some things that still make me laugh, although they weren't the best ideas! It was great having you and your terrific family as next door neighbors! Your family and the Fishers on the other side got me involved in sports, especially baseball, I am very grateful for that. Wish I had seen more of you these past years.

May there be some comfort in knowing that Dave truly was a special person that will not be forgotten. Kris’ obituary did an excellent job of capturing Dave’s unique personality and “disarming wit”.

It always was a treat to run into Dave in Appleton or Eau Claire. You always felt lighter after talking to him because there was plenty of laughter from his humorous quips and unique observations.
