He had the biggest heart and he was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, whether he knew them or not. Dave will greatly be missed by so many and this world will not be the same without him.

God saw him getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So, He put His arms around him and whispered “Come to me”. Although we loved him dearly we could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating and hard-working hands put to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us that He only takes the best.

In kindness, memorial donations to Our Lady of Atonement Church and to Hospice, would be appreciated.
