I was fortunate enough to develop a friendship with Dave through youth football. David, Jr and my son Nico played multiple years together on the same team. Dave had such a passion for his beloved son David. He stood there faithfully watching every practice and game. He cheered on his son, and the team. He always stood for the right thing, which was helping these young men to develop character through team work, honesty and integrity. He was a passionate family man and entrepreneur. Two qualities I very much admired. It saddens me deeply that we have all lost such a great man, but I am at peace knowing that he placed his faith in Jesus Christ. May he rest in peace.

Dear Nicole and family, My heart is heavy after learning about the passing of Dave. We met at Harvest Moon - he was a customer who quickly became a friend. His big smile, hearty laugh and garden/landscaping advice will be missed. Please accept my condolences, they come from deep within my heart. Rest assured, he will be remembered fondly!💙 Most sincerely, Andrea
