David had just broken up with that pretty redhead in the photo.
He was head over heels for her. I think her name was Teresa.
He took someone out to go see a movie at the theaters in Renton.
Yuen lui photography had a advertisement on the screen for business promotion. It was a full size screen image of her. She was beautiful.
David didn't enjoy the movie, but I am sure the date never knew.
That night he can over to share his woes, I think we got drunk.
I was always jealous of David, he always had women in falling in love with him. I just had my dog. Even my dog loved David.
Miss you David.
"Dave was in a few of my classes at Meeker Jr High. He was so sweet and I thought he was so darn cute with those big blue eyes! May God be with you and carry you through this time of loss."
"Thanks for the memories. Rest in peace buddy."
"I met Dave when he was sixteen and I was 29. We worked together at the Renton Printery. He became our "Little Davey" to my co-worker and I. He found out I was alone with three children and decided I needed to be looked after. His heart was as big as the moon. He came and colored with my son, who at the time was 5 years old. Even after the Renton Printery we remained friends. We would lose track of each other and then one of us would call the other. I have never in my lifetime met a person with a warmer heart.
One time he came to where I worked and gave me a Christmas CD he had made. Boy, was I in for a surprise. It was Christmas tunes alright, but with wording I had never heard. I laughed all the way home.
We had so much laughter. Dave made everyone laugh. Everyone. Even when he was in the hospital. He had awesome quick wit. And a radio voice. He used his radio voice on me a lot.
I will miss answering the phone to "Don't be alarmed, it's only me" and the "love you's" as we hung up. Let's face it, I will just miss my buddy."
"I went to school with Dave from 3rd grade through high school, and we lived in the same neighborhood. One thing I remember about him is that he always seemed more grown-up than most kids. Children can be cruel to each other, but I don't remember Dave ever being mean to anyone. He seemed to be above all that. My condolences to his family and friends."
"Barely knowing the man since HS leaves me with just 40 year old memories, but he was a man who walked toward you an open mind, walked astride as a friend and compadre. Sincere condolences to family, his close relations and those who truly knew the man."
"I went to school with Dave since 7th grade. He is one of our own classmates, like family we all mourn and sadden at this time. My condolences for Daves family and friends at this time. Peace"
"I knew Dave all thru elementary school before I moved to Hawaii...we ran around in a big group of kids, we all loved him.....I was sad to hear of his passing and send prayers and thoughts to his family and friends."
"I met Dave when he was "putting ink on paper" at Technaprint in Issaquah. Told him he had "bedroom eyes". He'd never heard of that and I told him that's what my mom always called them. A couple years later, we were having lunch in a cafe with young Brandon. Brandon was standing on the booth seat, staring at the elderly couple (in their 80s) behind us when the woman says to her husband..."oh look, honey, that little boy has bedroom eyes!" That Davey-O and Brandooner - such a team!"
"I was very sad to hear of Dave's passing... I went to Jr High and High School with Dave... We had a wonderful little chat in Nov 2013. I know Dave is in a better place.. My thoughts and Prayer are with his family and friends...."
"Love the pics! Guessing this is our Jeffy!? Working on more. Hope to connect with you, Jeff, and his so-loved pals soon. I know all the names but "he always protected the innocent!" Can not believe the huge trail of memories, times, humor and love he made for us all. xoxo"
"Will miss listening to music with you! You're the only man that would cry with listening to music- the song Patches being one of them- and dance to Sugar Sugar with me!! Thanks for turning me on to Green Day!! Will forever be grateful you were in our life! I am glad you got to meet Annie as you loved our Fern as much as we did. I know the kitties will let me know when you are near if I miss it. We have some great memories of you..Leave it to Beaver!! Love you David Vernon Oliver!! (inside jokes) RIP my dear friend -
Love Jim, Jacci, Kramer, & Molly, & Annie too"
"" When someone you love becomes a memory,
the memory becomes a treasure""
"Hugh..had to pick an option so I "lit a candle." (Liquor, Videos, Tampons and Candles!) What else could I do? xoxo
[Note: this reference is to Dave always laughing about convenience store signs that advertised strange combinations of their stuff. i.e. "Slurpees, Bait, Liquor, and Souvenirs." :-)"
